White Door Panels

Postby almostcopied » Fri Aug 04, 2017 5:44 pm

Hey Y'all
Does anyone have any idea where I can find white door panels and arm rests for the SPORT CUSTOM trim on my '72 Bump?
Here is a photo I found on Google of someone's truck that has exactly what I am looking for.

Did you ever get this resolved?

Unfortunately, I don't know if anyone other than TMI is producing the door panels for 71-72 bumps right now. Most of the door panels being reproduced require the trim around the panel (ie: 68-70). Unfortunately, even "good" original or used 71-72 door panels are still quite aged - that plastic chrome trim seems to flake off, and I haven't seen too many mint examples to date. I still hope that someone like TMI will reproduce the Sport Custom, Ranger and Ranger XLT panels at some point.

Typical aging of these panels. The plastic chrome cannot be removed/replaced without major damage to the material

Image
This is gonna make you guys cringe, but I sacrificed these panels as the backing boards were perfect. In retrospect, probably should have just made a set out of MDF and sold this pair to someone who needed a set of brown panels.

Image
Peeled the upholstery off to harvest the boards. Again, this seemed like a good idea at the time.

The end result after a visit to the upholsterer.

I have a set of okay blue Sport Custom panels if you're interested. Obviously don't need them at this point, but perhaps you could dye 'em.

Cheers,

Steve.

NPD Sells them. However they do not have the same chrome trim detail as the one you have, but they are a oxen grain vinyl and come in the both sizes and several colors.
