Managed to pick up a mint set of 3 door cards at pick a part but I need to swap the fabric over to suit the rs. Any ideas on what to use to glue it on?

On a similar note, is it possible to just swap the top parts?

Bought a can of aerosol F2. Now the fun part will be removing the trim patterns without wrecking them

On first gens, the fabric is glued to a card backing. That card is glued to the door card with a simple bead of glue. Just take the whole backing card off the door card itself, you'll see it super clearly when you start pulling it off. So using spray adhesive is no good, you need something to lay a fat bead down when you stick it back together. Don't know what you'd use to glue it back, I haven't got that far yet with blighter... Ados does come in a tube too...

<Shale>: Blighter doesn't really have an accelerator pedal, it's more just a loudness pedal. You can change volume, but you won't go any faster.


<mjlqtown>: (Southern US accent) I'v excised the demon! This car is now clear!


<Reuben>: I feel like when you stomp the throttle in Blighter, it's like you've startled an old man!

Figured that out when I had a trial run on my old spare door cards, getting the top half off was fine but made a mess of the bottom bit so might have to work on my technique haha
