    how many door trims could a door trimmer trim if a door....

    ...trimmer could trim doors?


    that out of the way, i need to trim my door cards to match my centre console.... cal was under the impression that once you removed the door card, that trimmed panel part just popped out given a little push in the right direction....

    however, last time i had the door cards off i could have sworn that the damn panels were properly stuck in and would need some choice cuts to free them. basically, who's right?

    if they do just pop off then yay! it'll be nice and easy to trim them...

    Think your right, they don't just pop out. The rear quarters don't either.

    I would have thought the bits that needed retrimming were plactic welded in, easy to break and possible to to re- do

    ooooh, speak more young autosparks

    sounds right to me - they looked like they might have been fixed that way (in my hazy memory) how can you redo it?

    Would have thought so, just when you cut the old plastic welds off make sure you leave something left to attach to.

    I purly did mine to get myslef out of sh!t

    I retrimmed my door panels with alcantara. The first one I did I tried to remove the cloth insert, and wish I hadn't bothered as it never went back on correctly. The other 3 i just pushed the ends of the cloth in between the old cloth and the plastic and that worked a treat. I used evo pva glue to glue the cloth down, and looks OK IMO.

    If you're just looking to do the cloth inserts, I wouldn't recommend pulling anything apart. In theory it could be done with them still in place, but would recommend removing them from the car and laying flat to do.

    Hope that helps.
