    Ok, this is pretty much a finished project. Need to get some new and probably aftermarket window cranks. Also will try and find some different style screws that hold it on in the middle. Hopefully a flat head and maybe allen style screw. I did have to put one screw in the panel at the back of the door to pull it in but that is ok. I thought I would need more. Once the other side is finished total project cost will be around $225. That includes the new upper door panels and window felts I would have had to buy anyway. Savings of about $350 over OE style new door panels. Only thing I would have done different would be to use a thinner padding. I thought it would compress more than it did and not be so thick. Still very pleased. Very simple looking door panel that looks ok and functions well with minimal costs.

    Headliner and doorpad looks great! And bonus cost savings that can be used towards other parts!

    Nice job on the door panels, very clean. I'm with you anywhere I can save some cash and gain some experience I'll give it a shot. I'm going to do something similar (hopefully soon) but I'm planning on making a fiberglass insert at the bottom to house a speaker and break up my the color scheme a little.
