Has anyone had door panels redone by Gene Painter?

How did they come out?

How bad can they be and still be fixable? It looks like somebody has been chewing on my Mach's.

There's also a co. in Ca. called Just Dashes. They do molded door panels, also.

He did mine and they came out great!
Check out my web page for pics. One of
mine was almost torn in half, he said
he could fix it, but I found another as a
core.

The original is on the main page, the fixed
is on the "Post Restoration Pictures" page.

If I remember right, that core was green wasn't it? Your car really looks great.

He did mine about 4 years ago. I found a set in a salvage yard car and shipped them to him, since i was wanting to convert to a sports interior. They had holes in the armrests, and the cardboard backing was torn at most of the coip holes. He recovered and dyed the panels and they looked great. Only problem I have had is that after about two years, the glue started letting loose in a couple of the corners where the material curves the most. Fixed this myself by buying some super model glue for model air planes, and injected it under the loose spots with a medical syringe. Just don't let the glue get on the face of the matrial, it lightens the surface. In all I have been pleased with them. I have to say taht his rebuilt panels look better than the repros that you can buy. Rick
