Wisco150, it all came out great ! Very functional. and should offer a lot of additional user options since it will accommodate quite a bit of molle gear.
Well done.

I ordered some strap material and ykk buckles from sailrite and sewed some straps to be able to quickly/easily mount helinox chairs to the panel.

Very, very cool design and execution too!

Let me share an observation, by NO MEANS any bit of criticism at all!

The attachment to the door shell might be be streamlined a bit where threaded rivet nuts are installed into the door shell eliminating the need for bolts, nuts etc. Your idea of captive nuts between the MOLLE panel and door shell is outstanding---perhaps consider making those with a slip fit collar in place of the nut. From there the panels could be fixed in place with a bolt bearing one of your wingnuts or maybe a fluted round knob? You could somewhat reduce the amount of protrusion of the bolts and wingnuts.

If/when the MOLLE panels would be removed the original door shell smooth surface would immediately return.

Again just an idea but overall this is a very, very good idea!

Hi JWA! Thank you for your response! It definitely gives me more ideas to think about and how to improve my design. I really like your idea of being able to have the original door shell surface immediately returned once the door panel is removed. Iíll see what I can come up with and post updates!

If I can help in anyway or just brain storm I'd be more than glad to do so. I've been using my rivet nut arrangement for 10+ years, mostly to attach 1/2" pieces of plywood cut and finished as exact copies of the factory supplied covers used on the standard or cargo only vans.

Something like this:

JWA, your panels look great. I really like the door with the Milwaukee tools attached to the inside of it.

What size rivet nut do you use and what size bolt do you use to mount the plywood panels?
