Philip are those the Dixie door panels?

How did you like the fit?

How do they feel? Are they "cheap" feeling?

Yes, those are the Dixie panels. I really like them. They have a different feel from factory since they are ABS plastic. I'm not saying they have a cheap feel, but different. They seem pretty solid. The biggest knock I have on them is that you will have one or two exposed screws. They are located at the front of the door (near hinge side), so it's not very noticeable. I painted the screws, so they are almost invisible. I would prefer they use the stock type clips to secure the panel. Overall, I really like them.

Thanks! I actually put the seats in and immediately noticed the nasty looking tracks myself. Out they came, mediablasted, then painted. Then I found the plastic covers that go over the tracks and installed them after these pics were taken. Now I have to install my "new" dash and tidey things up and the interior should be all set...

Here's Madge's interior. It hasn't been cleaned in a LONG time & for some reason the camera flash made the paint on the column & the dash look like it doesn't match, but it does under normal lighting:
