Got my new door panels this weekend from Corvette America. I ordered them there because they were the least expensive and claim to make them themselves. They have a video of how they are made and that is what sold me. They look great and the color was a perfect match to the rest of the trim. Ordered the basic panel and had to transfer the armrest trim and door plate which was no big deal. One thing I didn't like was you have to cut out where the window crank and door handle go through. Also have to cut where the door pull attaches. Wasn't that big of a deal but hate to take a razor knife and start cutting on something brand new that costs a few bucks. Got the drivers side on and it looks great. Would definately recommend them to anyone looking for a replacement.

Great. Be sure and take a photo or two so we can see how they turned out.

OK just finished installing the new door panels. Was a fairly easy project and like I said earlier I'm very happy with the panels from Corvette America. Here's a couple of before and after pictures including a previous home repair. (I hope)

I can see that I havn't quite figured out how to post pictures yet. They seem to be backward. If you click on the picture it gets smaller and is much clearer. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
