    I believe he's talking about the molded in plastic pins. THey are just a piece of plastic until they attach the two pieces of the door panel. Plastic pin goes through the hole on the other piece of the panel , then it's melted to tighten down on the little ring

    If you get a door panel popper tool it will save you those pins on the back of the door panel and u can re use them.

    I think hes talking the insert ones. Here's a little trick for plastic weld. (dont tell anyone) Use your little propane torch and the kind of plastic for Antifreeze jugs, oil quarts, etc. Melt that over the seam and drip where your welding it works! I was gonna buy a $200 ABS welder but this works for those quick fixes.

    Re: Door Panel Question

    It really depends though. THe plastic rivits were meant to hold the pretty light weight piece of plastic. Not a large modded fiberglass panel. If at all possible, I try to build most door pods to the doors themselves. Then modify the the upper portion a little to fit cleanly with the new. It renders a much sturdier final product on a door that's gonna be opened and closed a lot over it's lifetime

    You can also save the pieces of some kinds of plastics and dissolve them with MEK to make a plastic sludge that works quite well too. Used to use it before they came out with liwuid plastics .
