Default Recovered Interior pieces for Clinton

Clinton sent me his armrests and upper pads from his door panels. I wrapped them in some black vinyl I had.

Clinton if you don't mind me asking, how much money do you have tied up in all of this? Like after shipping and everything.

i cut clinton a huge break on doing this as he spent some time looking for some parts for me. plus i had the vinyl in stock already.

as far as the plastic welds, i use a wood plug cutter to cut around the plastic weld, then use screws and a washer to reinstall.

When I re wrapped mine in suede, I used a drill to drill the plastic out and sheet metal screws to reattach. Just be sure to use short screws or you may come through the front side of the panel.

I am planning on using hot glue to put the upper padding back on, the arm rests screw on so that wont be a problem. Once I get them I will let you guys know. As far as taking the upper padding off I used a dremel and cut the glue caps off

sheet metal screws, you really need to show your process as well, this would be great info for anybody who has a fading piece. I would appreciate it

Dont do it, I have a very good glue gun and the glue wont compress or hold it against the plastic part well, Be warned.

for a perminent attachment, "panel bond" works well on all materials, heck we use it to put quarter panels on. (the glue looking stuff you seen in seems in a trunk)...

I have recovered mine several times, and the screws don't hold any more. (too many times in and out). i used hot glue when i put mine together and that was almost 2 years ago.

as far as what screws, we use a #8 or 10 screw about 3/8" long. that's about as much as i can tell you. if we get a slow day at the show and i'm working with some plastic welds, i'll try to take some pics. the ranger ones are a little more difficult because they are larger than most other manufacturers.

you can see mine here. http://www.rangerpowersports.com/for...=1#post2061024

not a bad idea, until you want to take it off to do something different. now that isn't most people, but you never know. i would use 100% silicone before a pb material. at least you would be able to pull it back apart.
