Door cards peeling

My 08 gt with black leather is peeling for the third time and the under material is to far gone to hold the leather. I checked with ford and they want $850 for the whole interior door. Needless to say I'm not spending $1700 for two doors. I need ideas from everybody. Has anyone had custom panels done ? Price?

Are you talking about the metal sill plates that read "mustang"?

Pull the old piece and use it as a template to cut out a new one. Then re glue your material or get some new material and do something custom.

The problem is with the foam backing that is on the door. Once I glue the leather back on, it breaks done and the leather separates and peels off. It looks good for a month or two and then it comes apart.

Yep. My 07 did this as well
You need to scrape off any remnants of old glue then glue and apply the insert from the arm rest up. When you get to the top use something to push it into the cracks. I used coins to hold it there while it dried. Looks brand new now.

I watched the you tube videos before I fixed it the first time. They where very helpful. Unfortunately the padding on the door is shot. I think the Florida heat is the problem. I'm thinking of removing the foam. Anyone know what is under the foam and what shape is it? Does it follow the count our of the foam? I'm thinking of leaving it bare or maybe glueing the leather to the plastic.

No foam on mine I know that the old glue looks like a gray/green color kinda resembles that crusty green foam people put in those fake flower vases but it ahould just be plastic. U got any pics of your panels? And I cant remember the name but if you go to home depot they have a weather proof all purpose glue in a half gallon can that I used to put down carpet in a jon boat and have had no problems

I used 3m spray adhesive for the prior repair. When I get home this weekend I'll post some pics. I'm thinking also that if I take the interior door piece off I may be able to get the foam piece out and it may be easier to repair once and for all
