    Does anyone make a replacement or something close for the inner plastic rails located underneath the top of deluxe door panels. These are the ones that crack in 3 or 4 parts, and are stapled to the inside of the panel.

    Not that I'm aware of. You may try contacting Just Dashes as they do restore these door panels. Maybe they have a part they will sell.

    I ended up using JB Weld epoxy on mine. I took a file and feathered the cracked edges out and blended the epoxy well into the good plastic. It seems to be effective.

    Last I heard Just Dashes gets around $1500 to restore a set of Deluxe door panels, probably more now.

    Yeah, that's about what they quoted me. And when they are done, they don't have the fake stitching. That was the deal killer for me. Not sure what they do if your die-cast metal part is pitted like most are.

    Is it the same plastic that used in 78-81 top rail panels?

    If that’s the case I would hunt down a more easier to find 78-81 door panel to get the plastic rail.
