I haven’t decided on what I’m doing with my barn door panels but did score some nice dark wood paneling that I may use. I have wood paneling on my white van and that’s old OG stuff and had some brown plastic edge trim but it’s old, brittle and breaks really easily. Not a good solution but the idea of capping the edge is nice.

For anyone who has made their own wood door panels out of paneling, what did you use on the edges? Did you stain it? Use another flexible trim? Looking for ideas to finish it off nice.

Not my door but the condition I’d like to address (the cut edge around the door panel)

Damned shame you can't get a brown or colored door edge guard like back in the day. My twin brother and I worked at a trim shop in the early 80's when body side moulding and door edge guard was hot. We had it in all colors, trim brite and 3m used to make it.


When in doubt..get the sawzall out..

I wonder if I could use this...

The paneling is very dark brown and the door jambs will be black so it could work.
