Cardboard Kick Panels

The cardboard kick panels in my 94 D90 are coming apart, does anyone make replacements for these? Aluminum would be good.

Same thing with mine. I actually cut the cardboard because the clutch side was falling down so bad. I think this is what you are looking for.

I just called Rover's north on this. The are out of stock. They don't know how long. I have not tried to contact any other vender yet.........

What have other people done?

When Pendy rebuilt my truck, I didn't even know about the cardboard. Looking at my floorpanels, given that I have underdash A/C, I can't even imagine why I need them. What do you gain from having them?

I have not, though I am going to put some effort into the interior of my truck this year so I may give these a try. I'm not sure of the price - you'd have to give ECR a call....

I don't think ECR sells their parts. Maybe I am wrong but that has been their policy in the past.

No good solution for this problem. I tried to get on off the site and the they are sold out everywhere. Leni also mention that he would make some but I have not heard back form him either. Maybe if there is enough interest he will make a few of them. Sorry for the bad news. Here is his link

Just was in contact with Len who needs someone to get him a set of templates for the kick panels. He said that some accurate card board cutouts would be all that he would need. Once he gets these he'll make up some sets. Unfortunately, My truck is currently up at my brothers farm in NH and I'm in NYC. I'll try to get some done but am not sure the next time I'll be heading up North. Maybe someone could get these to him sooner than I can.

"I have had other people express the same interest in kick panels. And I have offered to make them - but I don't have a standard transmission so I don't have a model to use as a pattern. At least two other d90 owners offered to get me a cardboard panel from a '95 but no one has ever done it. The panels would be made from a single sheet of 18 gauge stainless sheet metal." -Len B.

We will, we just don't have them on the shelf ready to ship. So if you need it today we can't help. But the next project we do we can make 2 sets and then sell you a set.
We'll sell just about anything, we just can't do it fast or get you a tracking # by end of the day.

Talking

I am in for these as well, can ECR do a group buy when you make the next set? In the mean time, I feel like if I hit the brake hard enough I could qualify as a Fred Flintstone.

So I was washing the truck today. I had cut the kick panel over the clutch a long time ago. Now the cardboard panel was sagging bad at over the brake.

I just said 'screw it'*and and got some cutters and with a few snips just tore the rest of the thing out. I have to say - that in my case - it looks better with no panel, than 1/2 a sagging piece of cardboard. Actually it does not look bad at all............I have the A/C on the passenger side so the cardboard is covered up, or not there in the first place.

So I forget why we need these things. I guess it would make it look more clean down there by your feet.

Does it cancel out any noise, stop any air flow?

MIKE - let us know how much the panels cost when you make another.........How do you install something rigid?

Either way - I like things a lot better with that sagging piece of card board OUT OF THERE. It only took me 13 years to make that improvement

I'm with Flagg. Why do we need them? Still waiting to be illuminated.

Kick Panels

I'm most concerned about the passenger side. The kick panel covers the ECU and other wiring above the footwell.

I am sure it has something to do with LR being so attune to the design aesthetic being that they are so into form over function like on the newer HSE models. FORD?????

Its not needed but they are very against the unfinished look.

I have the updated part from Rovers North. They were out of stock when I ordered mine, but still arrived in about 3 weeks. Much better material and only took about 30 minutes to install. I really like ECR's solution, I just didn't know when I would be able to get a set.

Its just nice to have things right, plus I don't like having wires down there so close to my feet where I could snag them.

I think they do help a little, especially if you put some sound deadening material on the back of them first...that is how mine came out, with some soft, almost carpet padding looking material glued to the backs.

Definitely, you can probably sell a bunch on here since everyone has this problem and everyone is out of stock...plus, personally I'd rather give you the business than just about anyone since you frequent the board and are always dispensing invaluable information to us all!

Thanks again Mike for all the help you've given all of us!
