Making new doorcards
Well, I planned to build my own doorcards. I thinkt it could be a fun small projekt and I will try to make it as light as posible, without using real carbon, as this are insane expensive to get Huh

See my trackday project here: http://www.aeu86.org/viewtopic/jimmis-tr...car/t/8631

My first idea was to strip the original doorcard, and use the top piece. Then glue it to a flat thin wooden shiet, like a Starlet. No problem Smile But the next qustion are now, which material should I use to cover the wooden shiet? I though about black alcantara, but no other parts will be alcantara. Then I though about carbon foil. Its cheap and easy to get and it looks like the real deal. Many parts on the dashboard will be real carbon.
I have ordered a flocking kit, so I will try to flock the top piece. The dashbord will also be flocket, so I think it will look fine. I could also flock the hole doorcard.

What do you guys think? and does anyone have done a similar project?

Project AE86 now begun.

Cars I have owned:
Toyota Starlet EP91 1,3 16v Turbo, 200hp
Toyota Starlet EP71 1,3 12v Sport
Mercedes 207D camper, 1977.
Toyota Starlet EP70 with a 174hp Silvertop 20v See video here:
