How To Cover Door Panels With Fabric ?

Go to wal-mart and pick up a can of the 3M super 8080 spay adhesive.

Let me know how that works out. I have been debating the same thing but have not had the nerve to try it. Don't feel liek replacing the door panel when I mess it up. I too dislike the plastic "cheap" look of the door panels. Are you looking to do the whole panel or just pieces?

That stuff won't melt the panel or bleed thru fabric??
Won't melt the plastic but if you use really thin material that wasn't meant for upholstering then you may get bleed through. Make sure you use a material with a good backing on it.

I have the 3m super 77 stuff in a spray can. I would suggest using tweed as your fabric if you are going to cover the whole door. I'm using suede for my enclosue and amp rack that matches the interior color pretty well.

Happy fabricing.

I don't think that Stan surfs here anymore. :?
He had a bit of a falling out with Christian and one or two other members and maybe another moderator. :roll:

He resurfaced on Gen-Edge and lately has been asking about stereo's with hiding faceplactes and rust on his door hinges.
No mention of any other interior mods, fabric or otherwise.

I can say that the 3m super adhesice sucks wind. Never worked for me..the stuff pealed like a banana. Try 3m super trim adhesive, the "yello" for doing car tops. That stuff is wicked!

3M 77 worked for me. Just don't apply too much, but enough to get the fabric to stick to.
