Need a little more advice from those of you who have rebuilt your door panels.  I have stripped them down, cut out new panel boards, attached the top u-strip, interior light frame, door lock backing plate, checked fit to the doors, etc.  Photo attached.  Now I am about to reattach the padded vinyl to the panel board assembly.

1.  Should I start by attaching the padded vinyl to the panel using the SS trim strip and push fixes first, and then working both ways from there?  Or should I attach the vinyl first to the U-strip at the top of the panel, and then work my way down.

2.  What kind of adhesive did you use to attach the vinyl to the panels.  I have contact cement but am not sure that is strong enough to hold the vinyl in place.  There will be considerable tension in the system. 

Thanks in advance for the help.  John.
