Purchased a RHD set of barndoor panels from Clara and they are superb! The packaging truly was done with care and I'm very happy with the product. Thanks!

Just like everyone else said. I purchased the six piece front panel set with pockets from Clara. I could not be happier,
She was very pleasant to talk to on the phone, took the time to answer all my questions.

Panels shipped in five days with exceptional packaging.

If you are in the market for bus panels, I highly recommend Clara.

If I ever need to order again, I will get the panels predrilled.

Nothing but high-praise for Clara & her interior panels! Easy ordering, excellent packing, quick production & delivery, tracking notification, and of course quality. Could not be happier with the set I received for my Light Gray 1963 Double Cab truck!

Clara is a first class seller from start to finish.

I bought the cab panels for a '67 Westy (plus all the hardware to install) and the wood roof panels for the pop top version of the camper. The pop top panels were a special order because she didn't have an ad up at the time. She made them for me anyway. The product is great.

She must have a PhD in packing and shipping. Order some panels and find out for yourself.

Looking forward to my next purchase! Thank you.

I have no words!
Just received the kit of 6 front interior panels for my 64 kombi from Clara.
Delivered to italy in very short time with right shipping costs. Package was too perfect. Each panel has been covered by a cotton cloth and plastic film. Color of the panels is perfect and the drilled holes overlap with the holes of the doors.
This is the right way to encrease the quality and value of a split bus.
Clara, you have done an awesome job and I hope to buy again high quality parts from you in the future.

These panels are awesome. I ordered a set of kick panels for my 1963 double cab and the difference in quality between these and what I had are dramatic. I am going to have to order a whole new set of panels now.

Picked up my interior panels earlier this week. I couldn't be happier! I can't wait to get them finished and installed! Recommend these panels to anyone that needs and interior. Well worth the price and the minimal wait!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!!!
