    I looked on their website and for some reason they don't offer the grabber style door panel. I would have thought the one with the comfort weave insert would have been the one asked for the most. That is the style I need.

    Joe, feel free to link this thread or post the info there. I dont do much with facebook. You may also want to do a search for "new reproduction" here on the mmb to see additional items you may also like to share on your facebook page. In addition, Melvins Classic Ford Parts have a Maverick specific catalog that can be downloaded directly from their website in pdf format.

    Part numbers and Colors each are available in can be viewed at the bottom of each photo. Pricing determined by each of the authorized vendors. Please contact one closest to your area for pricing, and as always one must figure in the cost of shipping.... so although one vendor may quote a cheaper price, remember to factor shipping cost in. Even if the vendor does not specialize in Maverick parts, the door panels can still be ordered through them since they are an authorized vendor.

    A complete list of authorized vendors of Distinctive Industries products can be seen here:
    www.distinctiveindustries.com/where-to-buy

    71 Panels with the basketweave pattern across the top are in the works and should be available within a few months.

    These look awesome! Do you think there will be the possibility of adding additional colors in the future? For example, the Sprint uses the top standard 70-72 panel but in white, and the large majority of LDOs were tan interior. Personally, I'd love a set of deluxe 72 panels in white for my Sprint. Just curious. Thanks!

    Corbin, I would like to think so. My best guess at this point is the company will see how many units sell to determine the real market necessity before determining if additional colors are warranted... JMO though.
    I will continue to work with them to help offer information to and from them until both the Maverick community and Distinctive Industries are satisfied with this endeavor.

    I said it before .... these are High Priced ! Don't get me wrong at all because I think it's Great More Maverick & Comet parts are being produced (Especially Door Panels) and they look Niiice :thumbs2: but damn that's some Seriously Heavy Dough.

    I think I shall stick to my original idea of scottrodfab.com door panels for $135 + $35.76 for a shipping total of $170.76 & then later other interior pieces for a daily driver.

    I would love to have these but at Anything over $150 - $250 pushing it .... is Way Too Much for the Average Joe's budget :2cents:

    I was unaware you had checked with all the vendors on the website and not found any of the panels cheaper. We are trying to get a list going as to what each vendor is charging, and not base price on what a single vendor wants. Please contact the vendors in North Carolina with the part numbers listed on the panels above and ask them for a quote. Please report back if you find them cheaper so we all know.

    I think they aren beautifully done. If I were in the market for a stock looking door panel they would surely be on the list.

    325 for a brand new set of deluxe panels is CHEAP. Guess it all comes down to how bad you want new panels

    Are they interchangeable, are the overall dimensions the same between the different styles?

    The physical dimensions are the same but depending on the year the arm rests and door handles are in different locations. However, if they are not pre cut like the pictures indicate you could probably interchange them.
