Well Brian said I should fix the rust. I had not noticed there was any until he pointed it out but I am OK. Just a little dissapointed.

I went ahead and pulled the bumper, splash apron, and tail pan.

Actually when I dropped the bumper the splash apron fell off.



The splash apron would be pretty hard to reproduce. A reproduction is in order but I believe there is enough left of the tail pan that I can get a good pattern and make it.

Only you can decide but I like the last one with the small arm rest. My personal taste only of course.

It is good to see you are making progress.

Keep the pictures coming David.

LOL, I just got it.

Glue the material to the door panel....Good idea

Glue the door panel to the door. ......Bad idea.

Leave the clear coat alone and buy clips .....or industrial velcro.

On a serious note one of the things I like to do when I make door panels, kick panels etc is to take clear plastic like you would buy at a Walmart fabric dept to cover a picnik table. Probably 5 mils thick or so. (similar to convertible window material). It is about 4 dollars per linear yard.

I spray that lightly with contact adhesive. Only the material. Let it dry. What you will have is a clear piece of material that you can see through and it will stick lightly to your door, kick panel underside of deck lid, etc.

Once you have it stuck on the panel and smoothed, mark everything with a sharpie. That includes the door handle shafts, the door panel clip holes, the outer edges of the patterns..EVERYTHING!

Now peal the clear material off the door and stick it to the door panel material and now you have a perfect pattern with everything clearly marked.

Cut it out....Your done.

John

I already have the clips ,I put temporary screws in the door panel to hold it in place until I get it trimed to fit ,I will put the clips in the panel then glue a thinner piece over top of the white panel so the clips don't show thru after I get the pattern sewn into the foam backed leather ( glued on )I will then glue it to the panel and snap it in place,, but the panel board has a thin clear piece of plastic that is coming off so I thought I might need to remove it ,I think it might just be a protetiive sheet to help keep it clean, ???

The part with the writing on it .
notice the photo above the kick panel has clear removed ,the door panel with righting still has clear ,notice color difference

what a day. Sprayed the top half of the Kia raw bumper, prepped the lower half, prepped and repaired, the cladding, did some polishing, and then tinted for a good hour or two. No formula for the F9 paint code so I had to use a chip and even though it was the closest one, it was off by a mile. Only one spray out with clear w/ 25% flattener, which told me 35-40% would be much closer, but the problem was the basecoat, so I sprayed a bunch more with just base. I definitely picked the right chip but had to darken it a lot and in doing so it killed the brown in it, which was just a pearl, so I had to add a bunch of black in small doses and then pearl to offet the black killing it. Boss wants me to do one more spray out and just spray it. When I got into work he thought I was going to spray the top half of a white bumper(and prep it), then do the lower half along with the cladding(and prep them), take the door off a Jetta, prime the Jetta, prep the jetta, and paint the jetta. I mean really, get a clue dude????

Geez, all this talk about doing everything exactly the same on a spray out. I say just spray it with the same strokes! I didn't even let it flash. I just sprayed it non stop til it was covered, used a hair dryer, and was checking the color in no time. I think the skill in color matching comes from color matching, not being overly anal. Just my 2 cents. I'll be overly anal about keeping dirt out of the paint and flash times.

Hmmm, The panel I got did not have the plastic. I am sorry, I forgot it was there. Yes take it off. you want the glue to be directly on the PVC.

I think the fellow told me they had started adding the protective coating and I completely forgot about it.

Your doors fit and look so nice. Where is your tags? I don't seeze no tags. You steal that truck? hahahahaha. I have a spare set I can send you.

I wonder if Johns home made porta power would work in my truck. Some darn how I am out 5/16 on a bottom hinge. I am not sure what to do, tweak the hinge, I am worried the cab still out that 5/16. Bend the hinge or open the holes? LOL……. I won't have any holes left if I open them 5/16.

One custom hinge coming up. 5/16 just happens to be the size of that pesky bad pin I found.
