I'm expecting zero fit issues tomorrow while I'm putting them in. Everything I have seen gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling that install will go off without a hitch. These ran me 1900ish including the oem csl door handles. These were a toss up between an air box and the door panels. The door panels In the long run are cheaper than an air box and I get to see them every time I get in the car (i do plan on getting an air box in the near future)

Do you know if they make the rears with the speaker holes?
I'm using oem csl door handles. I contacted another company that makes replica door handles and they wanted almost the exact same price so I choose oem instead. As far as speaker holes I would contact Alex and he can give you a better answer.

I'm missing the rear panels and I had been thinking of selling them or finding a rear pair so that I have a complete set. This is probably the best option if Alex ever has a customer that only wants the front and needs to sell only the rears if I go the route of assembling a complete set.
I'm glad I could help. I'm sure Alex can work something out.

So I started the install today. I was able to get the rear door cards in. Never looking at the back of OEM CSL front door cards I was extremely confused on how everything was to go together until I was able to fin one or two pics online. Need less to say I plan on writing a DIY once I get everything buttoned up.

But as promised here are some pictures of the fit and finish of the door cards. I am very pleased and i will be even happier once everything is finished.

Enjoy!

Front door card














Rear panels

In this picture what you see at the end of the panel is the reflection from the light in my garage, not a bad panel gab. All lines are very tight.
