Hi there, I see you joined over a year ago, but this is only your 2nd post. Have you been reading about the Felix Wagon build? He did his own design, cutting, and sewing of his interior. That guy has some skills. Many online parts seller/restoration stores have panels ready to install. I don't know what kind of budget you are working with, but there are a lot of people here that can give you some good tips, or sell you good used parts if you post and ask.

I made the upper door panels and rear inserts for both my Monte and Regal using the same design for both and since I knew I would have a door speakers in the upper panels I designed them to accommodate those.

Welcome, looking forward to see what you are working with. I stole 565's idea and made it work with stock panels
