E36 DOOR PANELS SWITCHED!!!! View Teaser Pics (DIY coming soon)
So The panels came in tuesday and I did the switch that night and it took me about 7 hrs of straight non-stop labor. The panels themselves are easy to take off, but transfering the door panel clips onto the new panels took about 1 hour per door to do. It was like trama surgery...trying to remove the broken clips and put in unbroken ones without breaking them. There is no easy way to do it and my finger tips are still cut up and sore from it.
Also I had to convert my 1-speaker door 318i into a 2-speaker door 318i since my new door panels came with the 2-speaker door. This was hard to figure out at 1st, but the actual wiring, soldering and splicing was easy. Anyway the pictures should have loaded by now. Enjoy.
I also took step by step detailed DIY pics for doing the door panel conversion as well as converting from the 1-speaker door system to a 2-speaker door system. I will post these later in the DIY section once the moderators give me a green light.
