The inside door panels of my 73 SLC are all saggy and ugly. I removed the door card (thanks to this forum for help), and found that someone had already attempted repairs:crying. The pressboard was wet and broken in several places. Most of the clips were missing. I plan to make a new wooden doorcard using the old one as a template.

questions:
1. Any advice on duplicating the wood door card?
2. was that 6" square "patch" (photo #2) there originally? Or was that a previous attempted repair?
3. There were staples (photo #3) all the way around to attach MB-Tex to the wood. I assume those were not original, right?

BTW, the MB-Tex is in amazing condition -- considering the abuse this car has suffered...

These are available on ebay. Your wooden replacement seems better; I would be interested to hear if anyone has experience with these on ebay.

Thanks, Rowdie -- that thread was perfect! I searched for hours and never got to that one. I guess I'll have to improve my forum search skills...
