    I dono if any of yall watch Horse Power TV on TNN but last weekend they make some custom door pannels. Well actually the used the stock pannel but covered it with a vinnal and put flames and some block design on it. Im not really after the flame thing but was wondering if anyone has done any thing like this on a 73-87 truck(burban or k5)

    actually, they did not use the stock panels. They used some sort of masonite-type board (I'm sure an automotive upholsterer wil be able to tell you what it is)

    I got a friend that did that on his 87 pickup. I think he just used 1/4 plywood though. Cut him out some bow-ties and covered them in tweed. Look sweet /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
