    Any companies sell the right seat covers and door panel materials for redoing one?

    Legendary has them on page A83 of their mopar catalog.

    I gave them many of the parts they needed a long time ago to reproduce a lot of the items they have available. You are in luck.

    Door panels will probably have to be from SMS if you want authentic, so put your money down about 1 1/2 years in advance and hope you get them in that time frame (probably about $900 or a little more last I checked).

    If the door panel covering is in good shape, you can replace the boards with a little bit of patience and some 3M adhesive.

    I bought the new panel board for mine here: Kraft Tan Waterproof Panelboard

    Way back in '07, it took 8 months to get them done, and a lot of cash - the amount escapes me now but I'm sure it was in the $800 range at the time.

    I'll echo what Pete said. I got the seat upholstery, seat foam, head rest upholstery, carpet, sun visors, well liner and rear speaker cover from Legendary. SMS did my door panels as well; I recall paying about $800 for the door panels.

    Agreed - an absolutely stunningly beautiful restoration. Something to aspire to with my Monaco.

    Thanks Stan!

    I started the restoration 11 years ago. It's been completed for about 8 years. It's starting to show a little age in some areas but still looks great.

    Here's how I did mine. There's also a link to a video about redoing the panels somewhere in that thread.

    Great job! I didn't have much of an existing panel to work with.

    This is what I started with:

    It is simply amazing what you have done with your car - every time I see it in person, I think that to myself since I know what you started with. Outstanding transformation!
