I am going to have my Chevelle upolstrey covered in gray tweed, interior was gutted when I bought it. What do you use to make the door panels? Or should I let the shop build them?

I'm no expert. If you have nothing to start with, let the shop make them. You do know there is lots of repro out there? Gives me an idea for my 79 Belair, newly acquired. Repro may never be made for that car. But yours, why not an original look?

We went with a full black vinyl repro set on my sons 65 and with no air conditioning it gets a bit uncomfrontable in the summer months when its over 100 degrees. My 66 also has no air with a 454 BB and I feel gray tweed and good insulation will make life a bit easier.

Heres what I made my panels out of. It's pressed cardboard but much better than the original boards. I reused my metal uppers..I made all the door panels and covers..they are tweed. I picked tweed mainly because it makes up and wears well.
I got the board from a local trim shop as I don't
keep anything on hand.
