Okay, so I'm getting a little sick of the nasty grey/black/green/pink and other random weirdness that makes up the door panels of my 99 SE-L. I've popped my doorpanels off plenty of times and it doesn't look like there would be much involved. I figure I would need some sort of solvent to get the original panel cloth.

It doesn't look like there would be much needed in the way of tools. Just some, scissors, hot glue, new upholstery and that should pretty much do it.

Has anyone done this type of mod? Where did you get your fabric? Did you run into any problems?

Try searching the forum. :D
I had mine professonaly done, and it was well worth every penny I paid.

There is a good shop in Redmond...Herolds Upholstery.

I'm pretty sure that Chris's dad owns the place.

Chris has almost his entire interior done in blue untra-saude, it's damn cool.

His dad did a great job on my rear seat, door panels and armrest, and charged me quite a bit less than the competition.

I had the same problem in my SE-L. But mine were starting to come off anyways. I did try 2 times to do them myself but no luck. The problem I ran into was that holding the vinyl into the area that surrounds the insert are a pain in the ass. Just because of how it curves around. I personally didn't think it was easy as a lot of people say. But I don't remember anyone actually saying to adhere the vinyl to the stock vinyl door panel. I used the 3 m contact adhesive. But that didn't seem to work either. But in any case, If you want it to look good.. get it done right. Its worth the money.

Hope this helps :cheers:

How much would it be for doors (4) Rear seats to match fronts? I may have to see when he comes my way if ever since i think he in Bremerton.
But anyways, i was always wondering about that carbon fiber fabric, i wonder if its any good and itll match my dash, and door trim and other stuff i did...

In my defense, I did try searching. I went all the way to the last page in the cosmetic mods section too. I couldn't seem to find anything other than redoing your dash, or painting your glove compartment.

I'm really only looking to do the door inserts. If anyone finds pics of the work they've done, shoot me a PM.

I really don't know what color or what fabric I would want to do it in. My car is the Platinum Gold color, so I just don't really have a highlight color I could do it in.

Keep the posts coming, thanks for all your help guys.

This is a little off topic, but i am trying to redo my interior and was wandering how much it would cost to have all the trim replaced. Currently its all green and i want it to be black. I have a dash i can get from a friend, but am having a little trouble finding decent door panels and the other trim peices. Any help is appreciated

there is a "search" button at the top of the page where you type in key words and it looks them up for you :thumbup:
as for the color, i have allways wanted to make mine grey, ok, you have grey head liner and pillars, then everything below is black. i want to mix the 2 together. make the inserts and plastic arm rests grey, make some accent peices on your dash grey, make your sun visors black, along with your dome light. i think that would look killer! and the untraind eye would never no the differance! your honda buddy would NEVER know, but if you showd me or anyone else here a pic it would be great!

Well, for the 5 yards of Corbeau material, I paid $250.00
That will be the first expense. It will vary depending on the material you want.
The woven (carbon fiber look) leather is not cheap.
Herolds Upholstery is located in Redmond, which is east of Seattle (off 520).
I would say that for the material and the labor, it would be around $800.00 and up.
I would put labor cost to do that amount of work at around $600.00, easy...
It might be cheaper, it might be more expensive...hard to say.

That was about what I paid for mine, door inserts, rear seats, with embroidering and shift boot in Sparco Fabric I paid 900 at Superior Auto Trim in Bellevue.

you're supposed to use spray glue and tuck in the sides. I recommend it's done professionally, tho. Jus remove the panels and bring them into an upholstry shop.

Here's the plan for my SE-L. I haven't decided on a second color (either Silver or Red), but there's def. gonna be ALOT of black. Black G20 leather seats (once the brackets are done), Black JCwhitney carpet, of course, the black dash and door panels.

After that, I'll accent the door 'fur' with some sort of nice material and I may or may not decide to do some painting, I wanna try that Krylon Fusion crap since it's supposed to stick to plastic better. I got some sanding to do, tho.

BTW< has anyone messed with the headliner?
