Does anyone have any experience to share regarding interior door panels; full replacement panels and overlay panels? I need to replace the drivers side interior door panel on my 71 standard convertible and the cost difference between new/repop and overlay panels is significant.

You can get them to look OK but they will always feel like plastic. Have you considered reproduction 71-73 Mustang door panels? I think they look better and the pull strap will never break like the budget Cougar straps that are so hard to find. keep in mind if you buy repro 71-73 Cougar door panels they only come in the xr7 version and your chrome trim will not fit.

How bout 1970 style door panels, is it easier to redo them over the old cardboard or just have them custum made.
Im still hunting down A very very nice white interior for a 70 convertible. I have all of this projects,but they are dingy.
Thanks.
