Does anyone know who has “exact” reproduction door panels, assembled for the 70’s? I have a brand new set of PUI assembled panels that I purchased a while ago and I’m not installing them. The “pleats” in the center are flat compared to the originals and there is “chrome piping” Around the “pleats” which my original interior doesn’t have. My panels have the typical damage at the bottom corners and the carpet is faded. I’m willing to sell the “new” panels, still in box if anyone is interested. Oh, they are black. Lol thanks for any help.

Possibly Legendary Interiors. I have the PUI ones in my 70 like you mentioned. They look nice but not exact reproductions. What colour interior do you have?

I would be interested in the panels. Can you post a pic and how much are you asking?

Nothing special about this Monte. No SS, no rare options just a super sweet car to drive and take me back to the good old days!

I called PUI about the chrome on their '70 panels. I was told that their black ones didn't have it. Obviously, the guy was wrong. I ended up ordering from Legendary Auto Interiors. There were issues with the first set they sent me, but they made it right, after I sent them my originals to copy.

They are very close to being the same as originals, except I noticed the vertical pleated area on the originals, like the rest of the panel, other than the carpet, is vinyl. That area had a cloth looking pattern pressed in. On the new panels, it is cloth, not vinyl. It's a very fine weave and looks great, but not exactly as original. Very few, if any, would notice it.
