Never cared for the plastic map pocket bottom, like to smooth look of the later panels. I am also using 1969 Mustang arm rests. So first problem.... has anyone else run into this issue with clips on door panels not aligning with holes in door? Now I am installing 78-81 1 piece door panels but had same problem with just some of edge fasteners on original panels (just the mid panel, one covered in vinyl). I marked with blue tape holes I had to move to get new panels installed. These are Legendary panels so not cheap stuff. Also the spots where the bottom Christmas tree plastic fasteners fit into the door panel itself were hard to get in. I made a metal "spoon" up to slip into holes and gently pry the foam backing away from the hard base material, It's like they were glued tight right up to the hole. Once I loosened the material around the hole I could finally get the Christmas tree fasteners in and they had room to move around a bit for alignment to hole in door skin. On one bottom fastener I couldn't get it close enough to work so I drilled the hole out and am using a plastic receptacle/metal clip, since it gives me more wiggle room. Disregard the tape with arrow in center that is where the Muzzie arm rest is fastening to.
