"Unassembled" Door Panels

What is involved with installing "unassembled" door panels?

The Ebay seller said they only need the chrome strip from the top of the old panels. While this sounds easy, I'm sure there must be some trick. Is the strip glued on, pressed on?

door panel strips

I'm sure they are different depending on the car. The chrome on my 55 Chevy had round metal "barbs" that you push thru the panel and bend over. Bill

I had to do this on a 69 el camino.There was a metal piece that was attatched to the top of the door panel that is screwed or rivited to the door panel.It rolls over from the top of the door panel to the weather strip for the glass is,and the door lock knob goes through it.My customer threw his old door panels away and it was very difficult to find new ones.On an unassembled door panel you have to glue the top of the upholstry to this metal panel and install the chrome trim yourself.you may also have to make holes for window crank,door hanles,and armrests.

Thanks. The '68 - '72 should all be the same. What kind of glue did you use?
