I purchased a used passenger door panel on EBay recently. I needed this panel because I didn't have several trim pieces, specifically, the hockey stick and the stamped steel upper piece (not shown).
These are the pieces I salvaged. The stamped steel piece on the far left was sand blasted and painted. The hock stick was fine as is. The fuzzy window eyebrow piece, far right, was stapled to the stamped steel at the factory. I have new eyebrows but I don't have a heavy duty stapler. Humm...
The new eyebrows came with staples so I decided to use them. I aligned, clamped and drilled the eyebrow then inserted, bent and secured each staple with pliers.
It turned out great. One down, many to go. (Note my fancy 4th of July cast)
Here is the completed passenger door. The new brow is at the top.
I finished both door panels and they turned out very nice.
Al Knoch Interiors finally sent all the seat components. This Thursday I will drop everything off at a local upholstery shop recommended by several car enthusiasts. I am told I can pick them up the following Tuesday. It will be nice to finally get the seats done.
Don't forget, Hot August Nights in Reno, NV is our next car show and we hope to have the Corvette done for that event. Dennis and Annette K will also be going and they intend to bring their 57 Chevy Nomad. Should be a fun event.
Thanks for watching.
