Lift-gate Interior Panel

This is a do-over of the first panel...

Stock:
I made a 3/8" wood frame to fit inside the blue-lines. Which allowed me to remove those two weird tail-ends at the top. Then had a straight-edge instead of the rounded-edge to butt the new carpet up to.


New Panel:


Replaced speaker-grates to match front-door speaker-grates; Re-painted to match interior color.

Flex-carpet wrapped around and under the edges. Standard-carpet in the center. FYI: I used 3M-tape to adhere materials to the plastic.

NOS fabric across the top; Vinyl-edging to match.

From experience... I find the plastic-clip hold-downs hard to work with. Therefore, I replaced them with screws/finishing-washers.


New "JENSEN" tags... I sent a sample to an online merchant who re-created them for me.

Chasing an intermittent problem...

... is a pain! Intermittently, the door-lock would not operate. Traced all the wires and checked all the connectors... No fix. Finally, found one pin on the connector to the door-lock relay was slightly pulled-out... Fixed!

So then... I decided I wanted fade-on/fade-off courtesy-lamps. Here's what I installed:

(4-seconds fade-on / After doors are closed, a 6-second hold-on, then a 4-second fade-off)



Here's how it is connected:

Door-panel Courtesy-lamps

Just had to do it...



The lens:



The sockets:



The bulbs:



These are useful little things... Connect in-line to control lamp/light brightness:



Another useful item... Unlike a traditional bit, this bit does not pull carpet. Then, drill a hole in the door-panel metal-frame to accommodate the socket:

Door-edges...

Back in the garage working again...

Over the years the screws that hold the trim on the door-edges are either missing or the screw-holes were different sizes. As a result, I have various size screws with various size screw-heads. Then, where the woodgrain wraps around inside the door with an unfinished end.

So... I covered it all with a a piece of weatherstripping.

Lift-gate Sill-plate

It seems most of the used lift-gate sill-plates had scratches in the same place. I even purchased a NOS that then scratched in the same place.

Concluded that the latch in the lift-gate with too tight to the sill-plate. So... I cut-out around the latch, then covered the sill-plate with flex-carpet; And lined the opening with the same adhesive-back material I put between the bumper and gap.

Dash

The dash is now reassembled. Radio in (power-antenna operational), and face-plate installed.

Then... I stood-back and could still see some of the wiring under the dash. Used a piece of corner-molding and covered it with flex-carpet... 3M taped to the underneath.

Then... Time to cover the black separator between the upper and lower dashes. Attached a filler between screw-heads to level (see below), then covered with black-molding. Used a heat-gun to contour around the edges and around the side to cover-up the seam (see below).
