Postby wantz87 » Tue Jan 27, 2009 3:15 pm

Re-upholster the panel. Most people do it themselves but I had no luck with it. I ended just buying a set of oem tweed ones.

i know about replacing the tweed with a different fabric. i'm not looking to do that right now. but the vinyl is ballooning from the metal/plastic frame of the door. that is the problem i need to fix.

apparently, yes, you do. expecially since i said that i don't want to take the door apart. i.e. maybe a heat gun/hairdryer could reactivate the adhesive... or something the soaks THROUGH the vinyl to the substrate....

oh contra, your talking about the balloning of the vinyl to interior door panel (metal/fiberglass or whatever it is.) rather then the tweed to the vinyl. What im trying to say is you is to use 3m Super Adhesive Trim Spray between the vinyl and door frame. There is no way to re-activate the adhesive or have something soak through. Your either going to have to replace the door panel or respray adhesive
