Hey Scott, only thing I would add is that you may want to use spray adhesive unless thos chrome srtip are going thru and also holding it down. When I used to work in the boat industry, we made our own panels, and lemme tellyou, when that sun warms up the vinyl, it will unloosen, (melt) the hot glue causing things to start popping off.
Looks great though, I'm gonna make panels like that for my 715 soon.

The strips have tabs that go thru the board but are for looks only. I know Jeep put these on late 70 model trucks and had a wood grain strip on later model Wags but I have seen some without either. The reason I don't reccommend spray adhesive is because it will cause a blistering effect under the vinyl if you get to much. Several years ago a friend of mine asked me to help build a set of rear panels for his K-5 Blazer. He did the spray adhesive and completely ruined the material on the first one. When the spray starts drying the chemicals evaporating from it caused huge blisters all over the material. Luckly we went to lunch after building the first so we did the hot glue on the second board and never had a problem with it.

I'm sure someone with a lot of upholstery experience knows how much to use but for the average joe that's trying to save a few bucks will be better off with hot glue. The worst that could happen is squirting out too much glue and getting your finger tips a hot wax treatment.

I think yours were my inspiration. I used masonite and spray adhesive though. The other side looks better, but I haven't taken a pic yet.

i like that, think i'll do the same since i need door panels.

its a dang shame you people dont live closer to me, cause you see, i'm a shear operator at a trailer plant that makes reefers. i cut 1/16 FRP, 1/8 FRP, and 1/4 FRP. i can cut it to the size i need, then 9 times outta 10, i can get it for free.

Big thumbs up on that one. Also, when I do mine, I have a sorta tribal - south western weave, heavy uphoulstery insert I'm gonna add to mine...
I'd say I'd post pic's when done, but it's a long ways off..
Good job Scott!

i was actually thinking of using some 1/8 inch aluminum and covering it, never thought of the fiberglass idea.

Nice job from me as well. I used plastic board, the kind used for signs. Its sort of like corrogated cardboard. Cheap, easily cut and stiff; and no fiberglass itching!
