I am about to recover the quarter trim panels for my 1964.5 convertible.  Has anyone done this and have tips.  Conceptually seems easy but am afraid the reality will be tricky.



it is not bad but make sure the plastic panels are  in good shape before you start  i have had some brittle ones .
Some where some one is driving their collector car for the last time but they don't know it . Drive your car every time like it could be the last memory of it .

It's been a long time since I've done them.  I remember making marks on the plastic where the stitched seams align and try to match it.  A little bit of heat helps.  I also remember using washers behind the new boot snaps to make them stronger.
