Removing and replacing fabric on door panels

I am thinking about redoing the upper door panels on my ES in leather to match my 300m seats a little better. I am redoing my motorcycle seat and will likely have some scrap pieces large enough to do what I want to do. So before I get too far; how does it attach to the panel? Anybody have some good tips and tricks?

Thanks

I would just go an pick up newer trep panels from a junkyard car. It's going to take a lot of skill to properly tuck the vinyl in and make it look factory.

Yeah, I thought about that. One problem is I can never seem to find an ES with leather junkyards, just ol' plain jane SE's with cloth.

Ok sounds good. I might make a trip to the yard to "practice" this one first.
