Door Panel Landing Strip

That little patch of carpet.. I was wondering how it's on the door and if anyone has ever seen people different fabric in that slot. I'm thinking of changing mine, here is a picture of the area I'm talking about.

You can pull it off,use what ever fabric you want and use spray adhesive to seal the deal.

Re: Door Panel Landing Strip

I'm debating a swayed but thinking how many idiots who I drive around will open the door with their feet when its wet n **** out. I'm going to the place today to look at fabrics after work. I'll post up pics when I buy one.

Do you have to heat it up first or anything? I'm trying to not break the original piece, my idea is to just wrap the fabric around it and fit it back in.

I went with a camel color polyester vinyl over the camel polyester swayed simply because the vinyl is hand washed. Is lighter then the original strip but still darker than the door panel so it looks nice. Pictures are below of the fabric, not yet installed.





Any tips or pointers in doing this will be a big help. So feel free to comment.

Re: Door Panel Landing Strip

It should just be a carpet piece that is glued on and yes some heat will help loosen up the glue. You can use the old piece for a template and just recut the new one and glue it back in.

I was thinking of wrapping the original piece in the fabric and putting it back in, would that work or would the fabric make it not fit correctly?

It might turn out thicker if you wrap the original piece and make it look "fluffy"

Yeah true, but to an extent IDK if it'll look all that bad wrapped, give it a little bold look to it.

I basically plan on doing this once I start slowing down on modding the car cause it'll still give me that feeling of doing something lol, but wanna know if anyone's done it before I try it for the best outcome.
