25 minute door cards


was sick of looking at the rip in the passangers door card so picked up $23 worth of vinyl and went out the back for a couple of sheets of masonite to make up 2 new door cards.
a little stitching, some foam and contact came together to make these.

:)

Very nice, but no door pulls though? How do you close the doors? Just pull on the handle?

What sort of door clips did you use? I've seen the little plastic xmas trees but not sure how well they would work.

You need to get early holden steel clips. Your local motor trimmer should be able to sell you some or at least tell you where to get some.

Hi,

Was it difficult to make? How did you do it, any chance of obtaining instructions for the rest of us??
They look pretty good :)

used a template from the old ones for a size. Cut the sheet of masonite to that size.
acquired the two colours preferred..
worked out a quick and easy design - flipped material upside down, sewed material together.
spray gun of Contact adhesive used for 3mm foam application to back of material.
stitched in a wonky line for aesthetics as per pics :)
drilled holes on outter edge as on originals and window / door handles.
wrapped material and foam over masonite board. Stapled around the perimeter
placed Wurth clips in appropriate areas - ' X ' the door handle and window winders with a razor blade. ( or hole punch if avail )
fit and voila!

rating of 5/10 for difficulty

Hi

Good work. I used grab handles from the roof of a 1303 as door pull handles, just drilled some holes in the door and used rivnuts to bolt the handle to.

That's all that 1300 bugs after 72 had stock anyway, the stock holes will line up.
Mk1 Golf and Lbug used the same door handle/armrests, 76 Beetles too from memory.

Thats a pretty tidy job!
i wonder if you could do something like that just over the top of a standard door card? or would it be too thick?

These door pulls are on a friend/ customers car.. I think they are a great idea and incorporate the handle too!
