Default Looking for Knee Panel (doghouse)

I know this part is discontinued by AMG so I'm trying to an individual who might have one they never installed.

I'm looking for the 1995 version of this knee panel expansion.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

eBay or Craig's List. Might take awhile to run across one.

If you call anyone for parts and they tell you it's not available call HPG Hummer Parts Guy!! If dave tells you it is unavailable it is unavailable. HPG is the shiznit.

Plan B...worst cas scenario. Find a good metal fabricator (this sounds easy but is not easy to do). Have them measure the hole to cut out and make a custom panel. I would make at least two as im sure someone will buy the other.

These aren't discontinued.....but there is a story.

These were made by some dude in his garage at home or whatever. This is who AMGeneral bought them from (no, I'm not kidding). Then he died. Now his son makes them one or two at a time but if you call the super-duper secret phone number for this "vendor" a 15 year old girl answers (she got her phone when grandpa died or something) and you have to ask her to have her Dad call you to order these parts. Then it takes months.

I have a vendor who is working on reproducing interior parts with a vacuum former (how they were originally made) and he is just going to make the doghouse [the way they should have been made in the first place] with this knee panel cut out in them. I don't really want to be the end vendor on this so it will likely be sold by another vendor who we have a great relationship with (and since you should never end a sentence with a preposition so instead I'm ending it with a parenthetical citation). I have almost two complete interiors (one wagon, one HMC4) and we hope to make all of these parts available (made out of better materials that before) sometime in the next 6 months or so.

BigDog: I am a new H1 owner looking to install the KneePanel. Do you have to pull the entire dog house out to make this modification? or can I just cut out & install the panel? I recently purchased this from Predator Inc. They made a new mold and re-producing it. Thanks.

HPG: Best source may be to contact Paul S. - Predator Inc. in CA. I received a knee panel from them 1996 & up. They are/did some new molds to reproduce knee panel.

Thumbs up Knee pad mod completed


Use the template provided by Predator Inc., make sure you fold-in the template to match curvatures. Leave room at bottom & cut smaller than the cut lines (leave room for error on fit & U-nut placement)

Use Dremmel tool (rotary disc & vertical trim/grind bit) to cut/trim/smooth out edges. Recommend using ABS/Polyacetal plastic block to support bottom part after cut; provide stability when you insert panel & screw into #8 Screw + U-nut.

Lower bottom right #8 screw to U-nut needed to be 2x longer to reach the dog house panel.

FYI...Knee pad mod. can be done without taking the entire Dog House apart. Just be methodical & very careful with the Dremmel tool cut process. To make it easier, you may want to get the Dremmel tool flexible goose-neck extension accessory when cutting to make it easier. Recommendations came from Predator Inc. to DIY.
