  • Interior door trim - 52

    I need to ask, what is the proper way these lower kick plates are attached to the door?



    Mine have so many holes drilled in them its hard to tell what was happening here once.

    I believe they had rectangular clips that had long "prongs" stamped into the clip. These prongs pushed through the door panel- and were folded over the cardboard. Then the door panel was installed to the door using the push-in type clips that go into the holes around the outer perimeter of the interior door face.

        Hmmm. Well, I guess the 470 holes drilled in mine were added later. Kind of figured.
        No surprise, they were laying in the trunk when I bought this basket case 10 years ago.
        Thanks for the fast answer.

          Dan, I think I have a couple of sets of those that haven't been perforated. Want me to look?

            Yea! I am interested Biggs. Mine are set aside, I'll dig them out and really decide whether I want to try saving them. I was thinking some nice stainless screws inside those raised washers would look OK, but as I recall there are way too many holes already.
            See what cha got and I'll be back here tomorrow.

              Dan, I looked today and while I DO have two sets of these, neither of them are what I'd call "nice". They DON'T have holes in them, but they're dinged and tweaked and would take some rehabbing to look decent. They really need the talents of someone like the legendary Lark Parker to make them REALLY shine. A set could be yours for right reasonable!

                This weekend I will have some time to get out in the shop Biggs. I'll see if mine are saveable, and drop you an email.

                I have followed Mr. Parkers stainless threads with great interest. I have even made a couple attempts on a few pieces here. So far my results have been less than stellar. My comparison to our trim guru comes out about like this...

                Lark Parker, the Trim saver ---- And me, Starliner McBent, Trim mangler

                -----------------

                I'd be willing to give it another go however. I'll have to make a few calls todat and see if I can find a local source for catfish saliva.

                    Well McBent, looking at those photos in your post, I was struck by how the two characters shown could constitute the law enforcement of some sleepy little southern town.
                    There's the cagey, quick-quippin' hunk of a Sheriff and his well-meaning, klutzy doofus of a deputy. Sounds like th makin's of a sitcom!

                    "Hey Andy! Me'n Goober's goin' down ta tha crick and see if'n we can catch us sum catfish. Goober's gonna sho me how ta polish up the chrome on muh ol' Stoodeebayker a-usin' the spit from one them slimee critters. I'm wantin' mah car to be lookin' reel naice when I pick up Betty Rae fer the dance come Friday!"
