Default The cloth inside the door panels

Hello all. I plan on changing the color of the cloth panel on the inside of the doors of my PT. Has anyone ever done such a thing? I've seen custom work of the sort, but how complicated is it to get to/remove that panel, as well as putting it back on properly?

The PTdoityourself.net site has an article about this modification.
It would be a good place to start, then I'm sure some folks here on the Forum could give you additional details and hints. Good luck!

Hehe, I tried painting mine, some of them don't have the same fabric as the ones on ptdiy, my advice to you and anyone is DO NOT even think about painting them. I covered mine with a suede material that matched the color of my car, it looks excellent and feels very nice. Total it took me about a day, I took my time making sure not to mess anything up, and trimming fabric etc etc. I will post pictures soon for anyone interested. But to all who read, buy some fabric, it will turn out better than painting will.

I changed my seat inserts and door panels. My shop said the panels are held on with plastic clips, that have to be cut off in order to be removed. After putting on new materail they had to use some kind of commercail glue, no problems, been in for 5 months, looks great.

The door panels are held on with melting spots. You have to rip the piece off basically. You don't need to glue it back on as the arm rest will hold it in place once you put it all back together.
