This pair of door panels are made from 0.060″ aluminum and feature a door handle cut out, as well as other options. These panels will fit your E46 coupe or convertible. We have a number of options for fitment, which range from a blank panel with a door handle cut out, speaker holes, and mirror switch holes
The door panels include slots that attach to the factory clips along the top of your door, with mounting holes on the bottom side. Fasteners are not included, though we have provided holes for easy mounting. The mounting holes do not disturb the factory mounting holes, so you can revert to factory panels at any time. The panels will be shipped in an unfinished, raw aluminum finish. Included will be a door handle bracket, and shim, as shown.
The door handle is positioned as shown, due to allowable clearances on the door. The location may interfere with seats, if wide racing seats are installed in the car. We have an alternate location option for the handle, but clearancing will need to be done to the door to allow for room for the dor handle to recess into the door.
Door Panel Options: - Speaker Holes - 4" aftermarket speaker (depending on your speaker, you may need to clearance the door for them to fit.) - Mirror Switch Hole (mirror switch pops into the hole) - Higher Mounted Door Handle - This locates the door handle up higher, but will require modifications to the door to allow for the door handle to recess into the door. - Door Pulls - These door pulls allow you to have something to grab to close the door. - Finish: - Raw - The door panels come standard in a raw aluminum finish, which removes the burs from manufacturing. It is a great option if the Customer chooses to wrap or paint the panels. - Brushed - This option give the panels a brushed, more finished look, but still not coated, so it may be susceptible to finger prints. - Swirled - Swirling the doors adds a somewhat psychedelic aesthetic to the door panels that looks almost three dimensional. It is still not coated, so it may show finger prints, but looks great with a candy or a clear coat added by the Customer -Black Powder Coat - This ensures a very refined, durable finish. The panels will be coated on the front side, and some on the backside, but not the entire backside. Powder coat will take additional manufacturing time, and will not fall within our 5 business day ship time. If you would like a custom color, please contact us.
We can make the panels in other thicknesses and can also cut custom designs into the panel. Contact us for more information regarding custom work.
