interior door area question
Posted by: Bogey72 ()
Date: June 18, 2018 11:11AM

please see pictures, not sure what these 'parts' are called. I am refreshing my interior, and will be putting in the white door replacement panels, and rear panels, but there is a long strip of vinyl on the edge of the door that I don't have --

Is there a replacement part or new vinyl for that? Or, do you have to paint it with vinyl paint?

There's also a triangular area of unfinished surface at the bottom corner from the door opening - is that supposed to be open like that or am I missing something? Any thoughts on how to clean that up, maybe paint in there?

thanks for your suggestions !

The 'windlace" or "pinchweld molding" ? The J looking part in the picture.

Or the quarter cap the short vertical plastic piece at the top of the door jamb (above the pinchweld molding)?

Hi - I was referring to the J-shaped piece in my first question. And the 2nd question refers to the dark triangular area just to the right of the curve on the J-shaped piece smiling smiley

I just left mine as-is for now, but have never found a new replacement.

Just looked at my 65 Corsa, there is nothing there but it painted the same color as upper parts of the interior. I am the second owner and bought when it was a year old.

I think the "triangle" is actually part of the quarter panel interior piece (above the arm rest).

But, I have never owned a LM convertible, so I am not sure. It is on the coupes.

If you mean at the bottom near the sill, then you can order some loose vinyl from Clark's to glue on. Most just paint it.

Ok, thanks for the info on this. For the windlace/pinchweld, and the triangle, I think I will try to get away with painting both.

It would be best to use vinyl paint on the windlace, although since it doesn't flex much so any paint may be OK.
