almost finished my boot liner ...just need some carpet for it.
So now im looking for something else to be getting on with, and the doorcards are looking a bit tatty.
I thought it might be interesting to make my own.
Has anybody done this? What sort of card/wood did you use?
I was thinking about covering it in nylon (i think) ...the same stuff they cover bucket seats in?
Then i dont know how i would fasten it to the door ...maybe with some ordinary screws?
Anybody got any other ideas?

if yours look tatty then get the fabric of them and use them!
the reason i want to make some new ones is because the ones i have are all crumpled and broken ..so i couldnt really re-cover them anyway.

Cover the rear of the panel with thick polythene too, glued in place at least around the edges and ALL the holes in the panel. This should stop the panel absorbing moisture from out of the door. I have done this and it works well.

it doesnt matter if the board isnt perfect underneath because you cant see it anyway
looks great and gets rid of the nasty looking original ones
