The first picture shows the two positioning holes that I circled with a magic marker. The next step is to glue down the padding over the steel strip, and glue the new vinyl of the new panel to the back side of the steel strip and the new door panel. The last things to do are to put back the chrome ferrule and attach the new weatherstripping. I attach the new weatherstripping with stainless steel pop rivets. You can attach them with staples, pop rivets, or small screws, but the pop rivets are the easiest and also seem to hold the best. Here are the finished panels.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
