Got fabric for door inserts...
Ok, so I went to the craft store today and some marine vinyl to make my own door inserts!!! Im having trouble getting the right cut though. I thought I could just cut a square and then push in behind the panel...but it wont work!!!!! Does anyone know of ANYWAY to get those off to just wrap them???? Thanks guys!!!

no d00d...they don't come off...

get a piece of paper or something to hold over it and trace the design...the fabric would be better...

trace it, when you cut if out, leave extra space to tuck it behind. thumbsup thumbsup

Measure twice, cut once.

Leave extra material so you can repeatedly trim as needed until you get a perfect fit.

And above all: patience!

Oh yeah, some spray adhesive probably wouldn't hurt holding them in place.

i used tin foil to get the "mold" thumbsup easier than paper just make sure you cut bigger than the mold to get enuff slack so you can tuck it in

tru_Asiatik_Pride is right, you need to make a good mold first then cut it out leaving just a little extra material to be tucked in, then use a flat head screw driver to tuck it in tightly. Just be patient.
