Rear interior panels
#1
Wrench 
My rear interior panels are in rough shape. Looks like a dog scratched the heck out of them, some of the scratches are 1/8" deep. Since I'm switching from a ginger interior to black I was planning on painting them anyway, so does anyone have ideas on how to fix them (if possible)?

If they can't be fixed, I was thinking of either A) coating them in resin, then painting, or B) making molds out of them to fab up fiberglass panels. Whatever I do, I want the quarter trim panels and the rear panels to match.

Suggestions?

I am holding out hope that someone will repro these by the time I'm ready for interior... mine have the usual botched speaker install holes!

I know what you mean...but I'm not holding my breath. I might just cover them in resin, then texture and spray. Hopefully they won't look horrible.

How about covering them in vinyl?

I think covering them with vinyl would be a good cheap idea. Just make sure you get a good adhesive so the vinyl doesn't peel off when it gets heated up.

I covered mine in speaker carpet and it actually looks pretty good, it helps my dad is a carpet/tile installer.

Hey Buddy, do you have any pictures? I kind of like the carpet idea, especially if I can match it to the new crappy ACC carpet I'm going to order.

I will take some.

Just got to make sure its speaker box carpet, its thin and flexible.

EDIT: I ran out and took some pics real quick, as you can see I put some speakers in mine, I was 17 at the time Dodgy The carpet got slightly bunched up at the top because of it. The speaker has a few wooden rings under it to give it somewhere to mount, and keep the speaker magnet off the wheel well. Anyways you get the idea, and I'm sure someone else could do a better job than me.
