Defender door cards...

.... are another bit that seems to be frightfully expensive if one goes
for Landy originals. It's reasonable I suppose, as the things are
fragile and big and presumably not needed in the same quantities as,
say, brake shoes.

Previous owner of Marge had a nice couple of Dobermans but which were
apparently rather 'chewy', so I've got nastyily remodelled door cards
all round.

I'm wondering about using aly chequer-plate, as it ought to be
reasonably lightweight and durable, but I'm wondering too if flatness is
not good (are there sticky-out bits in the doors, or sticky-in bits in
the car to cause problems). I know you can do this nicely at the back,
but what about the side doors, especially the front pair?

Can the team suggest tidy, not-to-upset-her-indoors, and
not-too-expensive alternatives? Bestest of all, is there a nice chap
selling a kit (Richard?). Before anyone says, that hardboard with peg
holes or simulated tiles is right out!

Regards,

Simonm.

If t'was I then I'd be thinking about installing wing bead trim between the
door and the ally (as fitted between vw wings and body) This should overcome
any incompatible metals corrosion.

Next take a tip from a 4x4 is born and leave slight cutouts at the corner
that is lowest once the door is open on level ground to allow water to drain
out.

Then consider scrapping that idea and visit B & Q to price up their plastic
immitation alloy checkerplate just for comparison.

I fitted a custom interior to a VW beetle a few years back... consisted of
some duvet sets butchered to fit over the pannels and stapled into place.
Looked very expensive but cost peanuts off the market..... h'mmm suicide
doors and solenoid locks too.

Hmm... probably sounded like that when the dogs had a mouthful of it.
