Mounting kick panels

Recommended Posts

I'm getting ready to install new kick panels on my 26 and 27 Buicks. I found the groove in floor boards but how do you fasten them to the wooden posts in front of front doors ?? The old panels were too far gone to tell. Coulld anyone e-mail pictures?? Thanks

Old 26,

May help, I'm dealing with 33 tho, there is a hidden tack strip that the back edge has. ( facing back) . The windlace goes down, then the kick panel tack strip covers that and is tacked into place while sitting in the bottom channel.

Also I have sidemounts that will hold the center area in place-

It's 1933 but possibly close.

All you see is the kick panel. This is on the original car-

On my 1926 we used the same card board backing for the kick panels as was used for the door panels - just not covered with material. They were cut using the original shredded kick panels as a pattern then tacked into place using upholstry tacks. A strip of hidem welt was used vertically where the panel meets the door opening. This is what the original panels had and they were attached with upholstry tacks. I hope this helps!
