Having your car’s door panels remake is a big custom auto interior project, and one that you will likely not undertake unless it is part of a larger overall plan to redone the internal spaces of your vehicle. There’re 5 major reasons for having your vehicle’s door panels remake, and we’ll cover them briefly, below:
1 – As part of the finishing touches to a larger “redecorating” of the internal spaces of the vehicle. Generally this goes hand in hand with the set up of a brand new stereo system for the car, as the door panels might need a certain amount of customization to accommodate a new speaker configuration.
2 – If you are restoring a classic vehicle and want to return it to its original factory condition (or similar). Here, unlike above, you’re trying to add something new, but rather, restore it to the way it once was.
3 – Often, if there is serious damage to one or more of the door panels, it can create serious noise problems inside the car, and require a replacement for the damaged part. If this is the case for you, then you’ve actually got 2 options. Either have all the panels changed so they look the same, or only replace the damaged one (with the understanding that if the car is older, then even if the material is a perfect match, they will likely not “look the same” due to the age difference in the material. The latter option is obviously inexpensive, but it is a trade off.
Unless you’re having work done on an auto you’re very familiar with, or something like a kit car, you are possibly going to wish to have those carpets replaced (or at least taken up) as part of a general sounding of the vehicle to check for underlying damage. And, if you’re doing a repair or a general refurbishment, then a carpet changing (sans floorboard repairs) could be a fairly economical addition to your overall custom auto interior plan.
That is but one of a great number of services that a good custom auto interior specialist can perform for you.
