Terry,
Referring to the picture of Rick Huletts door panel, it appears that the top of the upholstery is wrapped over the door cardboard and is fastened to the back of the panel .
I would have assumed that the fabric at the top would have been glued to the door at that point and covered by the window frame since the window frame can not go over the panel itself. This would keep the door panel from pulling away from the doo at the top and eliminate any potential gaps along the window frame.
This is basically what they did in the L-29's.
I would appreciate any comments.
Thanks,
Steve

Steve, yes the fabric is glued to the door trim panel around the reverse side.
My Westchester has the plain broadcloth door panels. My upholsterer glued a 1/4" layer of sponge foam rubber over the panel before fitting the broadcloth.
The window frame or garnish molding holds the panel in place along the top.
Note there is a welting that runs along the sides of the door panel and around the garnish molding.

Thanks Terry,
I have no idea why the last post went out three times. Sorry about that.
I was not aware that there was a pipping around the door panel and the window frame.
My window frames go right to the edge of the door frame so a piping in this area would sit proud of the door frame and my front doors do not have the clearance to allow for that. I am not sure of what the reason for that would be
but I don't see a practical solution to the problem.
I believe my window frames are reproductions as there were holes the window weather strip attaches, so that might be the problem.

I noticed in the picture of the rear door that the carpeting strip along the rear of the seat platform does not wrap over the platform as I would have expected
and that the rear top of the platform is not carpeted.
Am I correct and if so is that and is is that correct?
Thanks
Steve
