Recently purchased a cab divider for my '59 Panel. Shipped cross country with no damage. Packed up with care. Really well made with all the right details and a real bargain for the price. Great communication from start to finish, very professional. Thank you Clara, I will be back soon for more panels. Erik

I purchased a complete mesh gray deluxe interior panel set from Clara. This included kick panels, non-walk through bulk head panel
also long drivers side panel is all one piece like original. All chrome moldings installed. Vapor barrier installed on front door panels. I could not be more satisfied. The quality of the materials and workmanship is second to none. Well worth the extra cost of her competitors. Cry once, you won't be sorry. Thank you Clara!

I am another satisfied customer of Clara's. I bought a double cab panel set months ago and finally got around to opening it to retrieve the single cab kicks that I also ordered. Man, let me tell you, it felt like Christmas. The packaging job was over the top and the craftsmanship on the panels was equally impeccable. I certainly got my moneys worth. Thanks Clara

Fantastic panels, very pleased with the entire transaction, start to finish. I scored Clara's panels for our westy years ago, and now the single cab is cruising in style. Thank you! A+++ **NOTE- I installed my own OG pockets, not her color mismatch!!

Just received a panel for my Double Cab from Clara, the package and preparation to make sure it was safe during the shipping was over the top! Never seen someone do as much detail to make sure the part is 110% safe and also of course the quality of the panel is extremely good.
Thank you very much Clara!
Best!

I received my door panels a couple months ago, and just installed this weekend (6-23-19)
Every fit perfectly.
I was really impressed with the way they were packaged.
I could tell Clara takes a lot of pride in her work.
Thank you Clara!!

Three years after my initial query I actually managed to place an order...

In case you're wondering, the shipping to my rear-end of the world was more than double the cost of the panels, so...

Clara was kind enough to work within my onerous requirements and my panel kit is now traveling the world with a friend, en route to me. Very Happy

Thank you. Smile

Another great transaction with Clara! Purchased a set of reproduction kick panels for my Mango bus. Top-notch quality as always! Thanks Clara!

I recently received a set of Clara's barndoor cab door and kick panels. Clara and Greg really knocked this order out of the park, with custom ordered details that make my panels even closer to factory panels than their already great product. Custom made Barndoor style door pockets made from folded and stapled cardboard material, just like originals! The backs of my panels were all painted black to seal them and a corrosion inhibiting paper vapor barrier was glued to the backs of the door panels. The panels arrived in a custom box with Clara's company logo in large print on the side and a very clever built-in carrying handle to help with transport and keep the box oriented vertically for best results. Opening the package was like having Christmas all over again! After getting the box open, I was met with the best packaging I have ever seen! The panels were separated by blocks of dense foam, keeping the pockets from getting crushed. The panels were wrapped in cloth that was neatly taped to itself. The edges of the panels were protected by foam pipe insulation wrapping the entire edge, then everything was shrink wrapped in clear plastic. Needless to say, the panels arrived safely and in perfect condition. If packaging was an Olympic sport, you guys would win the gold medal. I hope everyone that orders from you appreciates the effort you put into making sure your panels arrive safely. I am blown away! Your attention to detail extends into everything you do. Thank you for an amazing addition to my restoration of my '53 kombi. I don't think there is a better product available!!!

I bought the set of six Cab panels. They arrived when promised, packaged unbelievably well! Clara installed my original pockets in the door panels. She painted the inside of them to match the panels. The riveting is nice. They came out really nice! All the panels look sweet and will look good with the dove blue. I havent installed them yet because I have to do a few things first. But they look like they will fit nicely. Thanks.

Another perfect transaction with Clara! If you are thinking of buying interior panels for your commercial bus, look no further. Great product and the best packing/shipping you could ask for. Thanks again Clara!

Got my set of panels for my '62 DC minus headliner from Clara and installed after a month or so. Badass product, looks great and came well packaged and protected, as well as with clear and concise installation instructions, if there were any doubt. Would do it all again, but don't think that will be necessary for a long time to come given the quality. Cheers, Clara!

A couple years ago (at least) I bought the gray front door panels for my '67 bus but never got to installing them. They come protected with a sewn cloth cover that itself is a work of art.

Anyhow, I have a vehicle up on car stands waiting to be worked on that I start (run) now and then that these door panels and been lain flat under on top of a huge sheet of cardboard I pre-laid to lay on whilst working on the vehicle. Every time I run the vehicle I pull out Clara's panels so as not to risk getting oil or any fallout onto them.

Today I lifted the panel to pull out and away from under the vehicle and to my dismay was a two foot square seething teeming pile of termites that I figure must have been nesting for at least 6 months to a year eating away on their foods of choice. Gross! The cardboard was gone, the cloth cover was eaten away, and a huge glop of goop hanging onto the lower panel's gray painted side. I was bummed.

I found a place to tear off the cover and lay the panels flat, painted side up, and survey the damage. No pictures as I was too pissed at myself.

I proceeded to get a rough washcloth and wipe-wipe-wipe to see what was left. To Clara's credit there is barely any evidence of damage, zero warpage, and you would have to know that there was ever any goop to even know where to look. These door panels she makes have proved themselves bullet-proof and not ever been installed!
