The only vehicle I have that would fit them is the bronco, and it is not worthy of any kind of road trip. My U joints and bearings, shocks, ball joints are just about ready to go. THey are so bad right now they chewed threw a set of tires in under 10,000 miles. Its not going anywhere except around town till all that is done and I can get a set of tires that arent cupped to death.

sorry about that FSU. For some reason (probably testing or something) one of our autoguide folks closed and re-opened the thread... but it didn't appear to re-open properly.
I opened it again because there was supposed to be feedback on these templates that so much time and effort was put into.

with your permission... I would like to merge this thread into that one.

Go for it, that is where it belongs.

When I order the panels I will update the fit.

I think a nice bead of seam sealer would be better as it may allow some flex that the fiberglass wouldn't
I love the brush on seam sealer
give yourself a nice thick bead and hit it your finger tip in a rag soaked in lacquer thinner for a super smooth surface just like you do with your bathtub
quick and easy and no sanding required!
flexible too

Wow I missed a lot of updates. I love the idea of taking to a water table, but can't believe you'd be willing to start there. So far as I have seen, no one has even printed a copy - never mind had them precision-cut. If you do this, we need pics!

Yeah they took the drawings produced here and made theirs. Shame but that's what happens when you post drawings publicly. Had those drawings been posted under an open source license then no one could have used them for commercial purposes.

WRONG! These have been out there for almost two years now. Go find something else to complain about.

I put a scale on them since I don't have a flexible measuring tape. You have to remember that the scanner they're going to use is a slit-scanner, not a platen scanner so the measuring tape would have to "feed" through it like the top of a copy machine.

Anyway -- I had a factory Ford door panel with the P/N D5TB-1023890-AW-RH.6 molded into the back, so I used that. The mounting holes in the plastic were shot to hell so I drilled clear through the panel where the original holes were and made a mark where the screw hole should be on your panels. The window crank hole was a bitch to make round, so I made a mark dead center and noted beside it the correct hole diameter since the drawing was wavy.

I also had a lower door panel that isn't found on every truck, but that one had lots of holes in it that were almost certainly not factory. I marked the ones I could tell were original and put dots where the extra(?) holes were.

All drawings have a scale indicator on them, as well as notes on what holes do what... except the two perfectly round ~1" holes on the rear panel -- anybody know why those are there? They were upholstered over at the factory, never punched so I don't know what they are.

Did what I have the tools to do. Hope it works out for you guys. I'll go get them scanned tomorrow or Friday. Spent the better part of 4 hours on these three little templates between stripping the upholstery off and making my notes all over them.

Oh well. It's for a good cause. The first guy to use them owes me pictures of his handiwork.
This is really great stuff. Thanks for making this effort!

I just emailed the DXF file to my laser-cutter. I'll post pics once they're done, (and likely donate), and show pics from the install.

16Ga.

I figure it's so cheap, if it doesn't work, I'll tweak it and have them re-cut it.
