The vinyl sheet you got is what everyone gets. There should be a wedge
shaped chunk of (metal?) underneath which covers the lock assembly. Just
strip off the old vinyl and use some good cleaner and contact adhesive to
put the new sheet in and cut away the excess. At least, that's how I did
Interestingly, my side panel pieces (purchased from Vicky Brit) did not
have ANY drilled through holes, nor did the original pieces of mush I took
out. They have a cutout on each side to fit into the metal retaining
bracket just below, and some holes in the fiberboard only that you are
supposed to attach some little metal clips to. I couldn't find any of
those metal clips, and apparently neither could the PO, as my original ones
were just wedged in.
If anyone knows where to get the clips, I'd appreciate it.
Good luck, Ken!

Subject: GT6+ Tailgate panel kit querie
First off..thanks guys. It's so hard putting together a non-existent
interior when there are no local cars to check out, and the manuals are so
I have no rear panel covers, so I ordered a kit from SpitBits. I expected
three pieces, because the manual shows a left side, right side and center
piece (to cover the lock). Well, I got the left and right hand pieces and a
sheet of vinyl!?!? Is there a piece missing here, or is the center lock
cover just a piece of glued on vinyl that I'm supposed to replicate with
this piece of vinyl?
Also, how do the panels attach? It's too cold to go out and check out the
car tonight, and I'm curious. There's only one hole in each piece, so I'm
guessing they clip or slide in somehwhere.
