41 Door panel question
Home away from home
Home away from home

See User information
I'm in the process of finally re-upholsterying the interior on my 41 sedan. I have attached a photo of a piece that was attached to the back of a door panel when I removed it. Is this suppose to be on the back of the panel or not. I was told that the order of what is attached to the door panel is the inside door handle, the round escutcheon, then the door panel and then the coiled spring is on the backside of the panel.The piece in the attached photo if used would allow the spring to rest against it on the back of the door panel. I hope I haven't confused everyone. Thank you

I would think that should be on the backside of the panel. As you say, this would allow the coil spring to sit between the door and the panel and prevent the spring from working/wearing thru the paper/cardboard panel.

vaguely recal this set-up on my '49. It has been over ten years since I pulled the door panel off.

Good luck!
