This trim panel works perfectly in the awkward space above the Promaster slider door. It’s a real time saver! The panel attaches with screws to the ceiling and the panel on the passenger side “b-pillar”.
Note, the foam blocks installed by the factory at the top of the “b-pillar” must be removed to use this panel. We recommend combining this panel with the Front Columns Trim Panels.
The panels can be attached to the van structure in a variety of ways. One approach is to drill holes into the van sheet metal and then attaching the panels using "automotive push clips" (similar to how the few factory-supplied panels in a Promaster are attached). Alternatively, you could secure the panels with self-tapping screws covered with screw caps. In both cases the push clips or screw head covers can be painted with SEM 15103 Color Coat paint to match the color of the panels.
Since this is a new product, we don't have any direct experience with painting the panels but we have heard that Dupli-Color Vinyl and Fabric spray paint has been used successfully on similar interior plastic panels. Another option that we recommend is upholstery with a fabric or marine vinyl.
