Deluxe Door Panel Cardboard

Is there a vendor for just the fiberboard and new water barrier? Some holes are torn open and the board is warped...


Thanks!

CJ Pony has the water barrier. Search for watershield on their site. I'm sure others have it too.

I know the situation. I might be incorrect but I have not run into the backing for the door panel. I'm pretty sure the standard panel and the deluxe panels are different. Seems the clip slots tear out pretty easily. And the panels do warp.
It would be nice if somebody made a replacement out of fiberglass. AND it be the same thickness as the Fomoco originals which are masonite. Hear that? Exactly the same thickness!!
Now, having said masonite, any home center like Menards, Lowes, Home Depot would have material. I bought two masonite panels at Menards a few years back but still went with repops. (no secret that whoever designed the repops blew it) The panels I bought were about 24" X 36" so you have to cut them to fit. Be careful as the original Fomoco vinyl cracks easily.
Good luck.

Daisy. I have had pretty good luck fixing the tornout holes using fiberglass cloth and resin. You need to glue the clips that are torn out in, and align them with the holes in the door. Then fiberlass cloth all areond the clips...before the glue dries Good luck.

I fairly successfully peeled a '67's door panel apart to replace the board with masonite. It worked out OK but a nice repro panel surely is nicer. I traced the old board onto the masonite simply by throwing them both down and spray painting the old one giving me a pattern of all the holes and everything. The worst part was trying to save the foam backing while cutting it away from the board. I treated the new board heavily with Thompson's Water Seal. Just because. And made my own watershield from plastic (like late model cars use).
I did all this more or less because somebody told me I couldn't. I did. It sucked to do and the results were a bit iffy. I recommend not trying it, it's really not worth doing. I don't post in this forum or do concours things but I believe anyone that does wouldn't find the results I got to be acceptable for judging. Of course I'm sure there are folks who could the job a lot better than I could.

I used some old warped 67 deluxe panels with clip areas bad by wetting board and setting weights on top to unwarp and then used fiberglass resin around clip areas and i had some deluxe skins i installed which the end product was nice however i never tried to remove panels after installing is where the problem would be for mine . I also used old beatup inserts which i covered with woodgrain shelf paper and used the panels to dress up my 68 convertable. if you would like a picture send me a pm with your email address. Wes

I made the door panel bases for my modified 1968 fastback out of Masonite. They are modified 1967 deluxe panels.
