Nobody replied and I was waiting to hear from Musclemania5 from whom I had order the door card set (too lazy buy hardboard and make my own).

The issue was the rear cards that I got were wrong. I couldn't figure it out. Mike at MuscleMania5 was very good to work with and assured me that it would be resolved to my satisfaction if I sent him photos which he then forwarded to his supplier, REM. REM took a day or two to figure it out: rear cars for 4 door sedans and 4 door hard tops are different. I was very surprised about this but it seems that the 4 dr hardtop had a different rear door shape than the sedan. I had no idea an further more, I don't understand why the engineers had to make the door shape different.

Apparently, somebody at REM picked 4dr hardtop rear cards instead of sedan rear cards when they filled the order. The front cards are fine and REM will be sending me the proper rear cards ASAP. In the meantime, I have made one new rear card and re-skinned it. So, other than lost time (and money), all will be good.

Mike at MuscleMania5 was very good to work with.

Four door hardtop:



Four door sedan, followed by the difference in door cards.

They told me on Ebay that they will make any 'cards' (door panels) boards if a good sample is sent in. He has a lack of 1957-1959 patterns; I believe in this era he has 4 door sedan Dodge or Plymouth.

I probably wouldn't of noticed until you pointed it out. So the hardtop has what we call a thicker "dog leg" in front of the rear wheel arch. Where as the sedan is thinner with not as much curve. Wonder if it was to add strength.
