Plastic inner door sheilds?

Who sells the plastic barrier sheets that go between the door panels and the metal door? I checked JBG and did not see them. Searching here yielded nothing.

AFAIK, they are NA; never have been; never will be. Even when I worked at the dealership, I could never get new ones for any vehicle. Not even for an $80K Range Rover.

I would use a garbage bag cut open...just make sure it's the thicker "contractor" type. That way you can get it to stretch over the armrest mount.

If you want thicker stuff than a bag, pick up some visqueen at a hardware store, it's way more durable.

garbage back is too thin, get a roll of plastic sheeting (a 10x25ft 6mil at lowes is $23) its used as a vapor barrier in construction, same intention as in a vehicle. Use some 3M strip caulk around the perimeter and a few contact points in the center, then apply the sheeting. the 3m strip caulk doesnt dry up and seals nicely.

I use the wrapping that car bumper covers come in. It is a plastic skin on one side and thin closed cell foam on the other. It is a Vapor barrier and sound barrier in one. I then duct tape it all the way around the edges

I am going to use one of those Home depot Husky brand contractor garbage bags. I got some 3M VHB RP5952 series double sided tape to secure it with. I have some other times to address before I fix this, but this is the direction I am taking.

Hadn't put it in yet but I'm wanting to use "plastic corrugated cardboard"
like political signs are made from. :) Other outdoor signs are being made
from it too it seems, my wife was given a sheet at a convenience store
by the clerk taking a sign down. She knew I wanted it for "her" Bronco. ;)

Anything corrugated is too thick to fit between the door skin (which isn't flat) and the door panel (which also isn't flat). It has to be flexible.

Used as a sound deadener, but if installed properly will act as a vapor barrier.

Cool, Gak. :)
My plan is to just make the plastic "cardboard" a small L shape.
Going to put some P&S on the plastic after seeing your picture.

Inside...


Anybody on FSB brace their doors besides Butthead?
1/2" square pipe popped riveted to the inside...





...it's -way- more solid than it was but still too floppy. :/
I ain't licked yet. ;)

Yes


The light green bar is a steel fence post, runs from the top of the door to the bottom. Did that back in the '90s.

Yeah, top to bottom. :)
That's what I was going to try next. :)
I'm going to bolt it in so it's removable.

The vapor barrier keeps the cold breeze out. Usually you feel it around the door handle when its cold out. I like the idea of using a shower curtain.

Real men do it in the mud
