Looking for some interior used side panels front and rear for a '69 Arrow , tan in color but will consider any color , mine are shot won't stay up , the board behind the panels is deteriorated to the point they won't stay in place
Or does anyone have any tips or tricks. Really don't want to start putting screws in everywhere
Thx RR

You could get a few sheets of Kydex plastic and glue to the back of the side panels with Weldwood contact cement or equivalent. You can cut the Kydex with scissors or a Dremel just slightly smaller than the current panels and it shouldn't show. The Weldwood is only around $10 a quart and holds up well in hot environments. The Kydex should meet the FAA fire retardant requirements since the airlines use it for their interior.

We just ordered new side panels for our Arrow from Airtex. Supposedly they include new rigid backing for models that used cardboard backing, and are offered in a variety of colors and fabrics as well as vinyl. Starting at $1192.00 for your '69 Arrow.

If your side panel fabric is OK and it's just the backing that needs replacing then kshaw's suggestion would be a much cheaper solution.
