View Full Version : Loose door cladding, best way to fix?

Hey I'm new here, Just got my 1st GA, a '00 GT1.(Replaced my '94 Formula LT1) I'm not sure if this is the correct form. The door cladding on the passenger side has come loose on the back at the bottom and sticks out. It looks like it was put on with double-stick tape!!(Surely theres more holding it on than that) Whats best way to fix it? It's not gonna fly off going down the road one day is it?

nope, just clean the old double sided tape off and apply new tape :)

^ Yup, thst's all there is to it. When you get it though, make sure you get the stuff in the automotive section or at an automotive store, it's stronger. I was making a cd changer mount on my dash and got the 3M stuff from Home Depot and it didn't hold well at all.

are we talking about paneling? there would be nylon trim pieces holding it to the metal door frame

Pretty sure he's talking about the ribs. Redid mine with the good 3M stuff, still stuck on after a year. Good stuff.

I bought a roll of the 3M "molding" tape at AutoZone. I haven't had time to mess with it yet thou.

Thanks for all the replies.
