Door Card Repair

Any ideas on how I can easily repair this:



I had a similar problem on the passenger side, and used E6000 adhesive to repair it, but it wasnt this far gone.

I was thinking about using the same method I used on the other side, but using a clamp to hold the card in place (until it is dry).

I used some epoxy glue on mine, and it is holding up pretty well. Kinda makes a little mess though, and you're gonna have to take the door panel off to do it.

It would make it easier, because you would be able to put it on a flat surface. The epoxy glue tends to drip. All you need to get the door panel off is a torx screwdriver.

Ive taken a door panel off before, its not something Im very fond of. The E6000 isnt horribly runny... I think Im going to try it with that.

If you had by chance gotten it into your head that you should just go all out and completely reupholster your interior panels, let me be the one to assure you that it is the worst possible concept in the history of horrendous ideas. There is NOTHING less appealing as a possible DIY. Please remove your own eyeballs with a hammer first. It will be far less agonizing.

Actually I have considered having them reupholstered... but it seemed a little outlandish in terms of cost... 700 dollars for two door panels... hmmmmm.....

If I could find someone competent to do it, I'd consider it worth it.

This is a generalization... I am in WV and your saying find someone competent? -- bad joke... I know there are people who are competent, but probably not in this area...
