The kick panels are only pressed board and had seen a fair bit of water damage on one side and physical ‘foot’ damage too. Apparently, you can get ABS replacements and you certainly could not tell they were not factory once carpeted and installed. Instead, I decided to use my paper-mache skills and used thinned wood glue and newspaper scraps to fix the splits and reinforce the spongy spots of my original ones. I recovered them with the extra carpet I purchased but instead of just a straight stitch along that edge as from the factory: I hand sewed with an overlap stitch along the edge to stop the separation when removing and re-installing the panel and you cant see the stitches on the carpet side.
