Gentlemen. I'm new to this site. My wife signed the title over to me to her grandmothers 78 Fleetwood.
I'm trying to refinish or replace some of the wood panels on the doors.
Any idea where I can buy replacement panels?
Thanks.

Which wood panels need to be replaced? The ones around the door switches, or the ones on the tops of the door panels?

The panels I would love to replace are at the top of each door...
they run almost the length of the doors.

Those panels take a beating, especially the drivers door. Do not drive in the rain with the window cracked. I know it is tempting, but if that panel gets wet, it will cause the finish to deteriorate. Sun will also affect these parts. I believe someone makes a film which simulates the walnut finish. Most likely available at autobody shops or hobby/craft stores.
