November 2006 – door panels

Figuring out how to install the kit provided door panels was a challenge.  A challenge to make them look nice. 2006.11.a.driversdoorThen at an Austin Cobra Club meet, Dean told me about the pre-made door panels you can buy from Herb’s Custom Door panels.


So that is what I did and was really pleased with the results. Much nice look then anything I could have done with the material supplied in the kit.2006.11.b.passengerdoor







I finally added the ring around the e-brake. I got the ring from Mike Forte. 2006.11.c.ebrakebezelNote: I added a couple of hours to my total build time. Now it is a nice even 350 hours.



Hours spent on the build: 350 hours
