Interior door cards, door panels, whatever you want to call them. If you want to wrap the beige plastic I found a way how.

Stock panels and this is my finished product,

remove the door panels, watch a tutorial video, the cards are plastic welded into place, your options are to either melt the pastic to remove the card, or do what I did and cut the welds.

Found after cutting the welds you get these small pin holes from the tabs that are good for screw holes.
So after removing the cards I then wrapped them the best I could as it was my first time ever wrapping and then reinstalled them.

Once the panel is back together I used these washers and small screws I got at a local homedepot to fix over the welds.

After it’s resecured it’s ready to reinstall to the door.

So just repeat the process for the front doors and I did for the front carbon looking pieces to match the doors and that’s was that.

Hope this helps anyone who was looking to do the same as I was, but after I couldn’t find anything anyone else had done I decided to do it myself. So here you go.

Any particular reason why you used wood screws instead of sheet metal screws/

Also, did you use any tape or anything on the back of the inserts?

This is basically the identical process to what I did on one of my old cars. I don't have any good pictures on this computer, they must be on the old hard drive from the last computer but i did the same thing to merge pieces from 2 different colored stock door panels to create a custom 2 tone that NEVER EXISTED from the factory.
