I was thinking if a negative could be made from vacuum forming.

Reinsert the panel and vinyl in the vacuum machine with the preformed negative might get every nook.

Lol ^ I have this huge thing for garage kept cars for this very reason. The heat is what makes the glue separate.

I know I'm bumping from the dead.


Any updates on this? Anyone DIY?

The recent sale of the M-Technic on BAT has me wanting to wrap up mine, and get my money back out of it....

Alex.

Default Re: Successful fixes to interior door delamination?

Timely bump, something I'm also interested in as I've recently acquired a 'near mint' set of M Rain coupe cards that have been in storage for 23 odd years. The only thing wrong with them is they're starting to delaminate at the top of the pockets.

I took them to a couple of vehicle upholstery places and neither of them wanted to touch the job on a 'full restore basis'. They said the hours they'd need to put in wouldn't make it economical and they couldn't guarantee results.

However, one of the guys I spoke to had an idea that might work if the delamination hasn't gone beyond the edges of the pockets. He reckoned you could cut out the vinyl from the top of the pockets around the inside edge. This would a) prevent further delamination because none of the rest of the vinyl is stretched over a concave surface and b) would allow those areas to be patched. He suggested using black/dark suede/Alcantara/vinyl/whatever as a patch and you'd never notice the difference unless you were looking for it. When you look at the pockets there's a nice edge that you could use as a seam and I think the join could be invisible.

He said this would be an inexpensive job - cut, template, cut, glue.

In lieu of any better options I'm thinking this might just work quite well.

Thoughts?

I was thinking of using a needle on a part not easily seen and spray some glue through to see whether that work. Only my driver side has the issue.

The problem there is the material has already shrunk so will pull back off regardless of the glue you use. Heat may be able to stretch it back out but I don't think it will stay like that. Have considered this option myself.

If the delamination is very small this may work to prevent it getting bigger but I'm not too sure.
