PostSubject: Door Cards   Sat Mar 17, 2012 4:44 pm

I'm thinking of looking for some Door Cards at Volksworld next weekend but I'm unsure of how far you can go with them.

I've got this panel which extends behind the grill/hob - how easy woud it be to fit one there? Would I have to dismantle the grill, hob, etc?



Do they come with cut-outs for the socket, etc?

We are pleased with our doorcards from Newton.
I had the same worries about the panel that goes behind the kitchen unit.
In the end we bought only the two cab panels, the sliding door and the rear hatch but stuck to the original colour of black.
We also didn't disturb the panels at each end of the rock 'n roll bed.
I didn't want any warranty issues from disturbing Danbury's good work.
If you choose a different colour then remember that your existing door furniture is still black.

Osg - I hadn't thought about the door furniture. I was going for cream with green "piping" to match the interior.

Has anyone else had this issue? Will it look ok with black handles?

You could always change your handles to MCJ One's, just a thought Wink

You would need to cut the hole for the socket but would give you a chance to move it if you didn't like it where it was.

When we had our door cards done 2 years ago, we told the chap to do just the front seats, front door cards, full width rock and roll bed, plus the sliding door door card, as that was easy to do - in relative terms. When we went to collect it he had done everything - all the doors, the rear door, side panels, the seats, everything - even the bit down the side of the cabinets - not sure if he took everything out - but it looks brilliant - and he moved the double socket - all for the price of what we had originally asked for! No pics to post I'm afraid but will be on the Brazi bay stand at Volksworld next Sunday if anyone wants to see.

We used the company below for two reasons: 1. they were recommended as a friend of ours had his driver seat unpicked and a bolster sown in and 2. they were local. They were fantastic.

Just fitted our rear section with Newton panels in their cream finish, at the same time insulated all the panels to keep us warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Great job

@tim: it looks very good. you have so much ideas for us all. i am happy to know you. in the last time i wanted too to brush up my van insite. i think i painted my door cards too tim. in other colours but same way. what for paint have you done?
and at last, i have behind the doorcards acustic mats insinte of the doors. what can i use to make it on the door ? the "pins" are too short. i need longer ones for me. the pins are going always by closeing the doors loose. but the arcusticmats are wonderfull for sound and cooling the van.
