Here are the pics of my door panel with the cracked plastic. I applied fiberglass across the back and underneath for more strength today.

I painted them Satin Black,because I couldn't get the Marlin Blue spray paint any.where. I like the way the Black looks,and it goes well with some of the black inside the car too. I am planning on painting the tops of the back panels also.

Default Is that fabric or paint?

I have an 06 and was considering paint instead of fabric. Even considering Rhino liner!

Default My door panels

I painted my door panels on the top part,with Hammered Black spray paint,then used left over headliner fabric to cover my door panel inserts. It came out really good ,considering I have never done anything like this before.I am pretty handy with other things though. I will try to fix anything , if it's possible.

Nice work. Did you just use spray adhesive to glue the headliner on there?

Thanks for the info. BTW, I used fiberglass to repair my door panel. Passenger side was in 2 pieces. The portion that goes against the window was separated from the rest. I hot glued it then fiberglassed it. Now I need to grind it down together it to fit in the window seal. After that I need to Bondo and reprint it. I hope it all works!
