Thanks for the info Mike

Is there any reason I wouldn't want to update my 94? What do you do with 94 trucks that come in and need panels?

Is it an easy job to change the retainers that keep the doors open

Originality would be about the only reason.

To date we have just replaced damaged panels with correct replacements, but we ran out of stock of replacements a short time ago... so on the next truck??.... who knows.

No it isn't an easy swap. Its kinda a PITA.

The last truck we did we didn't have any good used panels, nor could we find correct replacements so we fixed the panels and then Rhino-Lined them. Not the best option, but worked for that project.

Has anyone considered trying to use early 90/100 panels? I know RDS had one side in stock? EDIT: george also has 1994 panels in stock $300 per:

You can't get to the door top studs on those unless you take them apart and they have a different door latch location than the NAS if I recall from my old '84 110.

94 door panels

Just to add to the door panel frenzy....I am having the 94 door panels duplicated. My initial order is 50 pairs. I will post pics when ready.

The biggest issue I have with my panels is the screws ripping out. Are there others things that wear out? Any way to fix the screw holes?

Someone suggested gluing a thin strip of aluminum along the screw area of the panels.

Not the "original" vinyl covered plastic, but .150" automotive haircell which will give more strength particularly for mounting screws. Overall it will be about the same thickness as the original laminated material.

Man, we will have lots of options... I have the 94 setup on my truck... dammit...

Mike, I have the brackets for the bulkhead and the arms that go to the door for the 95-97 doors. what about the actual door bracket? Is that a bolt on Idem or a welded on tab like on the series IIa doors?

will the 97 style door panels work ont he 94 style doors? Or is there interference?

Its a little welded-on bit, basically a square "c" - the door check goes in the middle and a clevis pin drops in from the top. I dont think the 97's will fit - there isnt the "channel" above the speaker housing for the prop rod to slide.

Just to keep you up to date on the 94 door panels. The tooling for the one side is almost done and I should have a prototype from the factory in a few weeks. Once that is perfect, we'll get the other side done. Probably a good 60-90 days before everything is ready. Tooling picture attached.

Thanks

Lookin' great John!!!

Maybe you could maybe add a bit wider lip on top to facilitate resting ones arm on the window sill when its closed?.. I'm not sure how it would be, or how much you'd need.. my truck is not here at the moment, but just thinking out loud for possible improvements..

anyone?
regardless, looks good so far
keep it up!!

Everyone seems to want them as orginal so we're only improving the mounting. Price should be just under $400 for the pair.

Latest picture....

The door panels are coming along. A lot more work than initially expected to make them right. Will still be a little while but we're getting there!
