Hi Mika, why won’t they attach? Do they not line up or is there too much tension on the panel to keep it seated in place? Either way, something is not sitting right, possibly wiring is not in the right place and is pinching etc. I wonder how they did it at Bertone. Two man job? Perhaps a jig to hold it approximately in place and then arrange all the loose bits and cables to sit correctly?

I’m also always fighting to get the door panels reasonably in place. Usually I end up have it hanging half attached, hmm… I still need to do the passenger door to find a short circuit in the mirror adjustment and I’m already dreading to start on it because of the panels. I’d love to get a proper howto instruction for the door panel install.
