Description

Are your 55 year old kick panels cracked, warped or just look look like they belong in a junk yard? If so, it time to give your interior the upgrade it deserves! We offer quality reproduction kick panels that are made with 0.125″ ABS plastic with a Crush grain surface to resemble the panels produced by Ford and Mercury in the early 1960’s.  The thickness of our panels increases the strength to securely support any 6.5″ speaker you choose to install. To benefit the installer, we machine a 5.125″ courtesy hole into the speaker pod. Your choice of speaker will dictate how much additional trimming may be required. We recommend comparing our specifications to your specific application.

The 0.125″ material we use also helps resist the panels from buckling once the fasteners are tightened. Nothing is worse than seeing kick panels secured so tight, that the panels crack or buckle around the fasteners.  That is why we have gone the extra mile to offer kick panels that are substantially stronger than anything that has ever been offered before.  Just look at our reviews and see what our customers have to say about their new Rhino Fabrication kick panels.

We recommend moving the dimmer switch inboard 1.5”. Although moving the dimmer switch is not required, it does make the switch easier to use.

Color:     Only offered in black, however 60% of our customers choose to spray their new Rhino Fabrication kick panels to match their interior.

Advantages

  • The 101A is year specific and is trimmed to better fit the contour design of the lower metal dash assembly.  Other manufacturers would lead you to believe that all 60-65 Falcon /Comet panels are the same.  Do not believe this!
  • We realize that some trimming and shaping of the panels may be needed on these kick panels because of the variations that were offered on different models. We at Rhino have gone the extra distance to make these fit very close. Slight trimming is still required at the top of the panels to fit the upper tabs into the wind lace.
  • Rhino Fabrication kick panels are manufactured from heavier material stock to increase rigidity and durability. We want your new kick panels to last for years and years. This extra rigid material will be critical to support the heavy speakers our customers might install.
  • Correct Crush grain surface
  • Lower curved tab added just above the sill plate location. This formed tab helps to minimize the unsightly void between the kick panel and the vertical side wall when panel is mounted.

Tips

  • The 1960 model year used completely different mounting hole locations.  These holes were forward on the original 1960  kick panels. At Rhino we have not duplicated these 1960 hole locations into our reproduction panels. All of our panels have the more aft hole locations from 1961-1965, so for those of you with 1960 model year vehicles you will need to drill new mounting holes in your sheet metal sidewall behind the new Rhino kick panels.

 

  • If you have added sound mat or altered the floor height of your vehicle you may need to trim the lower floor and toe board edges of your panels.

    I just purchased these kick panels for my Australian 1963 Four door Ford falcon Sedan. They are a nice fit to the my Falcon. The kick panels are of good quality thick rigid plastic with a nice leather look grain in the plastic. I will plastic primer paint these items to match my interior. Good product with no issues. I am very happy and recommend this product, Andrew from Australia

    These are top quality panels! The speakers fit nicely and the thickness of the panels is an added benefit. The only adjustment I had to make was to move the dimmer switch – which would be true of all speaker style kick panels I assume. I like them a lot. Fast delivery too!
