I took the cardboard panels off my three doors and they all had a piece of tin behind the panel like this
is that tin put in there from the factory or is it something a well meaning restorer put in there.
unfortunately when they put the panels on they used "Screw nails"
this made it very difficult to remove the panels without destroying them but I was successful.
the "Fake" door and the front door had a few of these nails holding them in
I found some upholstery nails similar to those but not quite as tall on the head are all the door panels supposed to be held on with these nails or the upholstery tacks with the flat head? does anyone have a picture of a correctly restored 25 touring with the panels in place? Thanks in advance for your help.
This fellow has them on the rear 2 of his 3 doors. You be registered to see the photos.
They also show in these photos.
Hope this helps.
Thank you Richard that answered my questions so the tin behind the door panels will stay I guess they were supposed to help keep the door panels straight or add strength to the door.
