    Door cards done... Opinions?

    Managed to re-trim the door cords and get them fitted last week...

    So was just wondering what people thought?

    Good change or bad change?

    The door cards were plain black and very boring before...





    All opinions welcome ...

    Like has already been asked, did you just stick over the top of the old ones? How long did it take you? I have some dark green velvet upstairs waiting to go on, just need 2 cans of adhesive to be delivered...

    I used faux suede from my local market and put it over the origional material...

    I followed the 'How To' on here was easy to follow and made it easy to do...

    All i used was:

    * Faux Suede
    * Can of adhesive glue
    * Shell garage card to tuck the material into the edges

    I didnt rush it because I wanted to make sure it looked good so did one a night after work... It could be done quicker but I dont have much time with work, girlfriend, football etc...

    The trickiest bit is the front door cards where the 'bump' is... Make sure you put plenty of glue on there to make sure it's smooth...

    Will get some pictures of the full interior later today just spraying other parts of the car at the mo...

    Thanks for the comments btw ...
