Hi. beautiful car. Did you or the original owner custom build those gorgeous door panels? I kind of have an idea how he built them. It looks like foam-backed vinyl with the stich then glued or wrapped around upholstery board? Very nice. Mine don't look that nice. They've already separated so I pulled them off after attempting to repair them several times. The 3M spray glue didn't.

The door panels came off a 2014 California special my friend. Everything on the car was done by me. Only thing the car had was a shorty antenna when I bought it haha.

Beautiful! I have the sagging fabric door panels so ripped them off and going to replace. Was the 2014 panel a direct fit of you have to customize quite a bit? Excuse my ignorance as I just got the car. Learning as I go and reading the forums
Thanks

I actually met the first owner of my Alloy at Mustang Alley in 2008, we hit it off, in 2018 he offered it to me for a deal I couldn't refuse!
It currently has 11,000 miles.

Here it is when he owned it entering Mustang Alley to be displayed, one of the thousands of engineer pics taken over the years (this is probably about 10 years ago).

I wish I could meet the first owner and ask them some questions but I'll never find out

You have to cut off three locating tabs on the back of the door panels but other than that they fit. You just have to drill a couple holes for the new screw holes. Some line up but not all do
