We would like to thank Josh from our TN Chapter for contributing to this article and sharing pictures for the tech page. Thanks Bro! Lets take a close look on how Josh covered his Lincoln door panels with tweed.
Above: Step 2: Remove all the trim parts from the door panel. They will have clips or small bolts and nuts. Keep count of all of your parts. Be extremely careful not to break any metal clips.
Step 3: Clean the door panel with a good surface cleaner or paint thinner diluted with water. Wipe until dry before test fitting the fabric over the panel.
Above: Step 6: Josh wanted flames on his door panels. Twine is used to make the patterns by gluing it in the desired design. You can also use thicker twine but in this application a almost unnoticeable flame effect was desired.
Above: Step 7: Spray the glue over the patterns and the panel. Allow to tack up and put tweed over the door panel. You may have to cut some slits in the fabric to allow the tweed to fit the contours of the panel properly.
