I've installed them on a 95.

There is only one mod to make, the cut out for the door hinge it is out of line compared to the door ( a 1/2" dremmel work of 20 seconds ) . looks awesome.

Wanting to get some of these on my series III but looks like I may have the older latch type. What's the easiest way to tell?

So anyway I went ahead and ordered a set of these due to the fact that the original panels on my 94 are ready to fall down on its own weight. The only pain I guess will be cutting speaker holes (I found a good template off an old 6.5 speaker box) and the smaller holes up on top I will be cutting for the tweeters. When I'm done I'll post a picture so you guys can see the fit as well as the finish. Backstay told me these are made of ABS plastic with no vynl laid over it so hopefully it will look good and last a long time.

Ok so panels are in and man it was a lot of work. Putting them on weren't too bad, its cutting the speaker holes for components that are the pain. Lots of measuring and fitting. I even cut my finger real bad trying to twist off the tweeter from the last panel. Still hurts Anyway they do look nice and they are good quality but you will need some self tapping screws because the holes are slightly off especially after you get the top ones on first. You'll might also have to do some trimming around the latch area as what I had to do on the passenger side. Have a file and dremel handy. The best part of these panels besides the looks are the added sound dampening effect they have on outside noise and keeps everything relatively nice and inside so the sound from the speakers sound even better. Very noticeable difference. My stripper friend lisa sat in the passenger seat last nite and while in Hollywood I pointed them out, she likes the truck a lot!

Her picture was posted on here like a few months ago when I went to Vegas. I didn't take any pics last nite but she did flash me a few times in the club and whenever I went in to suckle on her teet when she did that she'd laugh and cover up, really annoying (and u call me misleading). The craziest thing she did was unzip this zipper on the side of her miniskirt and like bend over to tease me some more which got me pretty worked up and made me bite her ass. Lots of doods kept trying to hit on her after that. We've never had sex as we say were "friends" but I've done some crazy stuff to her at parties before like we've made out, I've had my mouth on her hoohoo b4. Here I found this pic of her online. Shes the one on the right.

Those install pics just aren't doing it for me. I think I need to fly to LA to visit Neil and see them in person.... I need to hear a porn star's first hand account of these panels before I'm ready to purchase.

I know the type, fun to play with at parties and the like. But never can take home to play with. Best thing ive found is just to have fun with them for what they are worth then have someone else you know you can take home.

I think the trick to making these live longer is to put a shoulder on the screw. Piece of tubing or cut a piece of breather line to length. Put it on the screw behind the panel to keep it from crushing the door panel and pulling a hole through it. Make the door panel float on the screws. You can use an O-ring to keep the shoulder from falling off.

Carl......I'll make them if you and about 39 of your closest friends put an order together!
I am thinking about doing the foot well pieces if there there is enough up front commitment.

The holes were drilled to match the doors from my own 94. I've personally installed these on four different trucks now.... not one of the others was identical. Glad you've found them to be quieter naked.

I would buy a set of these designed for 110 rear split doors with lift-up handles - "Beach Runner style" so to speak. I know it's unlikely, but I thought I'd throw it out there.

x2. Oh and I'd buy a front set to match if you did have the rears.

John,

I totally understand. Where are you making these and what kind of molds are you using? I don't think I can pull together 39 Defender owners with this style of doors since so many of them are the older style. I only know a handful Defender owners in Portland.

I am currently making a pattern for the driver and passenger toe boxes. I am also making a pattern for a door sill trim finisher. I was going to have them cut out of sheet metal, bent and powder coated at a local place. I've modeled them in 3D/CAD so as to make it accurate and I'd be more than happy to share the drawings although I am still making adjustments for fit. If you think the drawings would get you a head start, let me know.
