CJ7 Hard Door Liners - Any ideas?

I've got some real cheesy velvet looking material on the inside of my doors. I haven't seen any aftermarket replacements. I have thought of making my own and wondered if anyone has made/bought any and has some pics, or ideas.
Thanks

Sure, inside panels are quite easy to make.
1. Use the present panel as a panel.
2. Trace it out on a piece of 3/16" masonite.
3. Cut out the Masonite Panel.
4. Drill lock and handle holes in the new panel.
5. Drill and insert NEW door clips into the panel.
6. Glue on some 1/4" foam to the front side of the panel.
7. Glue fabric/leather, etc., of your choice over the foam
8. Bend the fabric over an glue it on the back side.
9. Use Weldwood Carpenters Contact Cement.

JCWhitney has "headliner" material for sale that's already got the foam and material bonded.

Me, I like to go to a fabric store and get what I like... Drapery material works well as it's thick, accepts the glue well and is quite robust.

See, easy as pie! [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

No pics yet cause I haven't done it. But I am using a set of doors that were on a jeep that had a fire. The panels are a little black and toasty. I plan on taking that stuff off and using sheet metal or something that will be easy to screw to the doors.

And its light.

My brother just used the masonite. He used a pattern that matched the interior of his wagoneer.

A friend of mine has a CJ with diamond plate door panels.

Just a couple other ideas.

I was thinking about using some aluminum or thin steel ... then bolting it on (welding nuts on the in side) or pop rivets.

Recovering them yourself is pretty easy but if you just want factory style replacements there are several suppliers out there. Here's just one as an example door panels , but if you do a web search for them you'll find others. It's definitely not the cheapest option, but it'll give you that factory look. I thought I saw some in a 4WD Hardware catalog. They don't have them on their web site, but I think they do in the paper catalog.
