Using SEM color matched vinyl spray I was able to stretch the old vinyl over the newly made door cards (I let the vinyl set in the warm sun for an hour). I got a nice blue/grey color match from under the armrest. The blue was matched to Lenny Copp seat covers. I am over the moon with the results! Now on to the drivers door panel!!
