Install DIY Project Tips

See the pictures of the Camaro Standard Door Panels get the new materials intergreated using the OEM Steel upper sections

See the finished drivers standard Z/28 Doorpanel up the page

1st  you have to use a angled tool to bend the original staples OSBORNE TOOL #120 1/2
  
You have remove the original upper panel and reset the pressed daggard holes using a angled set of pliers when doing by hand
this means you have to turn the tips up so the pre punched holes will puncture the new panels giving a tight fit.
After you get this removed you have to clean the upper metal panels with Solvent to remove the glue (we use Kent Acrysol)
then use a light acid that wiil remove the surface rust  (Metal Prep)
then spray lite coat of sealer like (Sem Rust Shield)
You can the align the upper panel to the aftermarket assembly doorpanel, using the notches and marks

Next  apply glue to the doorpanel base board and the metal , using a heavy weight hammer to stamp the metal to into the panel, by hand doing strokes like a roman makes his sword, hard and even to get a smooth feel of the new hand sealed upper section

Adding the foam pad that the aftermarket company did not include with the kit
You have to hand cut the 1/4 inch foam to size with angle the cut  to edges
