Replacement for NAS Cardboard passenger kick panel

I still have the factory passenger side cardboard kick panel for my 1994 NAS D90 but as in all cases it does not stay in place no matter what I do. I was thinking of drilling holes in the top slot it mounts to and put screws through it to hold the top section in place but before doing so was wondering if anyone knows of a quality steel kick panel to cover the electrical instead.

I have seen a few items online at ECR that look nice but can't find anywhere to buy them or anyone that sells these.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

I just rehabbed both pressed board kick panels on my 90. I used thin (~1/8") wood strip backing to hold the original shape of the panels and refinished them w/ Duplicolor spray truck bed liner.

I glued the strips in place, but also carefully used staples. As best as I cleaned, I was not satisfied with adhesion to the 25 yeas of dust, soot and oil on the backside of the panels.

The panels came out great and the texture of the liner hides the staples somewhat. The liner is adhering very well. This method is certainly not for the rivet counters but this was one of those "hey, that came out pretty good" surprises.

The factory bulkhead tabs just fold over them, just like they do on the factory cardboard ones. You won't be disappointed in LeloFab's.

Were these tabs NAS only or later vehicles? Mine has Pozi screws through the footwells and no evidence of any tabs.

I can't comment on the ROW vs NAS for the clips but can tell you that typically if you do not have them then your footwell was probably repaired at some point. That being said, I have had pretty good success installing these with the top dash clip holding and then I can furnish a rubber strip for the bottom that helps keep it from sliding, especially when you push your floor mat up against it.
