Deluxe Door Panels
#1
Hey guys,

Longtime stalker on the boards here. I have a question about the deluxe door panels. I bought a pair of them on eBay for $150 buy-it-now (w/ free shipping). I troll eBay for deals and just happened to run into these an hour after they were posted. I just finished paint and interior is last on the list, but I could not resist. The guy said they were brand new, but he had purchased them a while back and he could not remember from where. I was a bit dubious, but I couldnt pass up on the savings. Well, they arrived today and I was shocked. He mailed them to me in the original beat up box and when I opened them up . . . they were still sealed in the plastic. BONUS! They were made by Mustang Market.

My question is what do y'all know about this brand? Regardless, to say I am pumped would be an understatement. I am a grad student, so every dollar counts. They look to be a couple years old, but hell they look awesome.

They don't match your socks. You should send them to me (the panels, not the socks).

I don't know much about that specific brand. I have some aftermarket, some of the first that were available. Fit was pretty good. I did break off a couple of the plastic tabs when I went to remove one but it still hold onto the door just fine.

I hope I do not burst your bubble. You paid about they are worth in my opinion. I bought a set at full price and was pretty disappointed. They are plastic and you have to do a lot of cutting and drilling. Getting the chrome/weatherstripping off your original panels and "stapled" on these takes a very long time. Then there are the factory clips that when mounted properly still do not hold very well and they can be seen through the carpet and make a mark that makes a bump that is clearly visible on the thinner parts of the panel. So, plan to spend about 6-8 hours getting them to fit and I ended up using double sided tape for one just to get it to hold onto the door. So, am I very disappointed in them. There's a guy in Arizona on Ebay that will recover your original panels. He's not cheap but it's not that much more than paying full price for these crappy repro ones. You may not be a picky as me but after spending hours working on them I decided to go another route. So, does anyone need a pair of white panels with blue carpet?
I'll sell them for cheaply as you got your pair.

I'll update everyone on how the recovering goes. It's about $400 for the pair but they guy says he will take off all the hardware and put it back on. Believe me - the staples on the top are a PITA to remove, I've attached pics of the repro ones. While they may look nice, take a look at the gap on the drivers side and the bump in the closeup.

Got a set of panels from one of this Site's sponsors a few years ago and they were around double what you paid. Looks like your panels came with the carpet, is it a good match for your interior? Also you will need the pull handle and woodgrain insert. That will cost extra but I know you saved money. Good Pick.

Nobody sells the panels with all the hardware. You need to reuse the handles, wood grain panel, chrome trim strip. door knob grommets, and the weatherstripping and thin stainless strip. If some one made decent panels with all that included they would run at least $750 a pair. I'd pay $1,000 for a NOS pair if I could find them. Hopefully the recovering will be worth it.

Yep, it is a black and white interior so the match is perfect. I have all the original parts from the original panels. The panels themselves are ripped to shreds and are water-damaged. This is a daily-driver restoration, so I am not going to get into any arguments or quibbles about concours or not. I was just looking for some knowledge about my brand panel. Thanks Mike!

Dont know what brand my uncle bought but they were a terrible fit. They definitely sucked. But maybe yours will be better and as long as you are happy with them that all that matters. Cause when its all said and done you are the only person you have to please with the car.

I have seen this set on line for $300/pair which is a really good price, but i noticed that you have to cut the handle youself.
I would like to hear or see how they fit?

As I stated - if they are plastic in my experience they might fit like sh*&. No offense to the vendors or buyers - the manufacturer tried and they look good - you just have to accept that they are not far from perfect. I could live with the passenger side - it's not bad except for the dimples but the drivers side fit is unacceptable to me.
