an eye-catcher in the tuning area
The sacco rescue are considered special essays in the lower door area. The articles are common in older Mercedes models or at BreitbauTo find kits. Vehicle models of the 80er and 90er from Mercedes were often provided with Saccobrettern. The large trims were introduced with the Mercedes W126 already at the end of the 70er years. They are also referred to as Türbeplankung or door attachment. The articles are often held in the paint and the look of the aprons and made of plastic. But when the skins hit the market, they were not very popular. Until then, there were often chrome bumpers and not necessarily made of plastic. But not only the plastic bumpers took some getting used to. At first it was regarded as mocking to continue the plastic in the form of Saccobrettern on the doors. The articles were then later accepted and are in tuner circles, especially in older AMG Mercedes, indispensable. Due to the acceptance of the Saccobretter the Türbeplankung was also attached to other models.
Door paneling - what to look for when buying?
When buying a Türbeplankung should be paid to the appropriate product. In the trade are available especially for Mercedes models of 80er and 90er years Saccobretter as trim. The items can be purchased not only in used condition, but also new. In online shops or in the product descriptions for the articles, the car model is usually referred to, to which the Türbeplankung fits. It should also be paid attention to the right color. The articles are usually made of plastic. The plastic should harmonize with the bumper and not stand out in an unpleasant way. If the new door trim does not fit the old plastic bumper, then you can also consider changing the bumper.

Door paneling - rust is a common problem
If you are looking for a specific Türbeplankung for your older car model and not immediately find it, then you can help professionals in a tuning workshop if necessary. Make sure when choosing the tuning workshop that they understand the tuning of your vehicle model. As a rule, it is indicated on the Internet which vehicle models are tuned and which services the workshop can carry out. Door skins are a tuning accessory item. But remember, the Sacco boards are indeed a nice style element, but they are also a guarantee of rust. The planking is almost always bolted and that is exactly the problem. At the attachment points often rust is created which is not noticed. Under the planking collects water, dirt, salt, etc. and that makes the doors corrode unnoticed. Often the problems can only be recognized when water enters the cabin. But then it is often too late. So it can not hurt to regularly remove the planking and check the attachment points.
