914 RS America style door panel sets, I need your feedback

Bob at APPBIZ here

Really would like some feedback from you guys on our newest product.

We have been the leading vendor of 911/930 door panels for years. We have been asked by many 914 owners to develop more 914 products. After nearly a year we finally have 914 door panels in production. We had a big battle forming the top piece and finally decided we would do it in metal like the factory did on some cars. We think the results are spectacular.

Pictured below is our 914 RS America Plus panel. It features a 911 RS America Handle with OEM Bezels and a 916 style accordion pocket. Pictures of our other 914 panel sets will be added to this post as we upholster them. This model was the most complex so we figured we would tackle it first.

We have just begun production and will have several versions of 914 / 916 panels available very soon. For now you would need to purchase them direct, they will be available from Pelican after the first of the year.
Again I would really appreciate your comments on these. We really value your opinions and with your help we can make this a terrific product.

Awesome! Are the 916 style in blue or chestnut leather?
What about beige or light grey vinyl?
Good call on the 916 style, I think they have diagonal patterned stripes.
I like those ones with the red pull tab.

The 916 had a large deep accordian pocket on only the drivers side. Should we put them on both sides or Mimc the factory panels? BTW they had decorative diagonal stitching in the upper rear quadrant and the lower front quadrant.

You should post this on the 914world and 914club sites. You will get tons of feedback. Looks Great so far! I am sure a lot of people would jump on the GT door panels for their GT clones.

914 door panel update

We went ahead and reworked the tooling a bit to make the uphostery process easier. Pictured below is our Upholster it yourself version of the panel set

For those of you that meed a color other than black or are planning modifications this might be just the ticket.

As you can see from the pics we are now punching and forming retaining tabs for the thin strip of wood used when putting the cover on. This is the way the factory did it before they abandoned the Steel tops. This was expensive, but far cleaner than the spot welded retainer we were using initially.

Part number for the Upholster it yourself version is;

DP914UIY
OEM Style 914 Door panel set (2 panels) Upholster it yourself version
List price $199

Be sure and Tell your Pelican Sales rep the part number and that it comes from Applied Business Concepts [APPBIZ] as it is not in the catalog yet.
