Any soft fabric is easier to stretch for the upholstering because you can pull it taught better. But that doesn't really matter if you start with the back panels first. I did it with synthetic suede which doesn't stretch at all and that was my first upholstery job; it was cake :)

Then this should be no problem! And don't worry too much about messing it up, it's pretty easy.

Not sure on what models they did this but my 03 zx5 has molded ABS plastic inserts on the door panels and not the horrible chipboard. The abs panels come off easy so you can reupholster them.

AWESOME post dude. I was looking for info on this for a really long time. I'm thinking of doing Lime color inserts to match some racing seats and a new paint job i'm getting.
