Re: Door Panel How to

what do you all use to attach the trim (in my case the little chrome bars on the 67 panels) with this is metal on vinyl

Re: Door Panel How to

Trim adhesive works well. Just don't get it anywhere you don't want it.

Re: Door Panel How to

Graet 'How To' Michael,
In relation to the door panel project, I am installing new weatherstrip on my 69 Chevelle and have problems trying to get the outer piece of rubber to lay flat after installing the screws both on the doors and rear windows.

Re: Door Panel How to

The 3M #77 spray adhesive doesn't seem to do a very good job of holding the vinyl long term.

I let it tack-up before I wrap the vinyl over, but in a few hours it comes loose, (not all of it, usually just the complicated and overlapped areas).

Does anyone have a brand and model recommendation for an adhesive that will hold permanently?

Thanks

Re: Door Panel How to

I have used 3M Super 77 spray adhesive on door panels and it has worked well for me. I apply the adhesive and then put some spring clamps on to hold it until it fully sets up.

Re: Door Panel How to

3M #90 is better for long term adhesion. Spray both surfaces and let it dry to touch before attaching the vinyl. Be careful to not let the vinyl touch the glue joint before it is aligned. It is hard to remove. Wax paper placed on the glue joint will allow positioning of the vinyl without it getting stuck in the wrong area. Once aligned, carefully remove the wax paper while pressing the vinyl in place. If the glue was too dry and doesn't want to adhere the glue can be re activated with a warm iron. Cover the bottom of the iron with aluminum foil to keep the iron clean.

Re: Door Panel How to

I originally used #77 spray, and it was ok on the flat surfaces, but the vinyl would slowly unfold where it was wrapped in corners; That was after letting it sit overnight with clamps on it.

I finally redid the folded corners with contact cement and it's held ok.

Last weekend I put in the headliner and used 3M weatherstrip cement; It worked well.

Re: Door Panel How to

This is what I used. Works well and can be repositioned for quite some time before setting up. It appears to be very similar to the original factory adhesive I pulled off.

I used weatherstripping adhesive for any area that was not flat, except where the vinyl wraps around, I ended up using contact cement.

Re: Door Panel How to

I need to do this to my door panels; I have my old door panels to use for the upper rail, but I know I need the inner weatherstrip, and the metal clips. Can someone who has gone thru that recommend a source for those materials, ie. the 'fuzzies' for the door panel to glass area, and the clips which pop in and hold the panel to the door?
PS. I'm installing '70 door panels (saddle) onto '72 El Camino doors. Should I expect to find any differences in hole locations etc on these?

Re: Door Panel How to

I bought mine through OPGI, but I think you can get them through all of the major Chevelle suppliers. (My door panel kit came with extra clips.)

I used rivets to attach the felt/molding to the door panel (after the vinyl is wrapped over it). You can paint the heads black.

If you go to any car shows you will probably notice that that is how most people do it.

You can take the parts to a Auto Upholstery shop, they can put it together for you.
