Door panels

This the passenger door panel from my 79. Both front panels lower carpeted sections were removed by the PO. With no luck finding decent replacements, this will be my attempt to make my own panels from quarter inch birch ply.

I know MenInBlack offers ABS door and interior panels, if your interested. I have a set waiting for me to get to the interior of mine. Just a thought. I bought them as they are less susceptible to moisture.

If it's anything like my '74 Ford F100 it's what happens when the hinge mechanism gets worn out. It's a very similar design so wouldn't surprise me at all.

How come I can only see the pichers in posts 1 and 6? The others are a big minus sign in a circle.

Yup. Its worn out hinges where they connect to the hood itself. There seems to be no way to bring it back into alignment.

I don't know. I had edited some of my posts by removing and adding new pics.

This what I had. The PO had removed the lower portion of the panels. Probably due to moisture rot.


The doors without panels. I used aluminum tape to seal factory holes.


Fitting birch panels before gluing fabric onto them.


I saved the faux wood trim from a set of Grand Wagoneer door panels.


Final product. This is what I made.

I'll be making the rear door panels, rear cargo panels, and tailgate panel soon when time permits.

Man I love your rig. The red, Rhino and trim all look so good together. I have nothing productive to submit, just a little drool over your rig.

Thank you Rangster. Now if I can talk you out of that new engine of yours!

I do what I can with my limited skills to keep it on the road.

Removing, repairing , and reinstalling the fuel tank and transfer case was almost too much.

But getting "envy stares" while driving it makes it worthwhile.

I LOVE that dang 79 red wagoner !!!

something about it,.....guess that is why you get all the looks of envy....

the mirrors are one of my fav things on it
(after,... of course ,...the rhino grille )

it does everything better than new trucks

especially the look, feel, and pride of ownership

door panels look great
love the materials color and texture.

just a moment ago I stumbled across a message from 2018
where you said you found your wagoner for 800,....I hate you now.

I found pics of the door panels as they were when I first bought it.
