  • Victoria interior

    What are these parts that were in my Lebaron Bonney Victoria interior kit. The long piece is about 55 inches and I think it goes across the top of the rear seat back.

    I am now thinking the two 27 inch pieces may go between the rear armrest and side panel. Does anyone have a picture of that detail?

      The 2 pieces in the middle look like part of the windlace that goes in the door jams (you should have a total of about 7 yards for that car). The bottom piece looks like finishing trim for the top of the rear backrest. The two 27 inch pieces probably are for the armrests, but it's weird that the armrest material is not sewn to the trim.

        Now that is a standup quality guy. Mike the owner of Classtique Upholstery helping with a technical question of a product bought from his competitor. As Art mentioned on another one of his interior threads,, the support at LB is really lacking. Sometimes bigger is not always better.

          It is re-assuring to know that we have a "hands on" provider to our Model A needs in our midst.
          As Mitch stated, Mike's assistance to Art's question, is truly honourable. Thank You Mike. May we all take notice.

            Jeff flathead Ted has also posted here as well and that is great and I will tell you Mike will be getting some business from me in the future for sure.

          Thanks Mike, I agree those short one are the same material as the windlace but why 5" long? This kit came with the car and the instructions are iffy at best. Who would have an original looking shade material? I know the Victoria Association had reproductions years ago but have long since run out.

            They must have made a mistake when they sent you the windlace in 5" long pieces. Since it didn't come as one long piece, then they should have given you at least 2 pieces 36" long and 4 pieces 46" long.

          I bought the kit from Grain it technology. Those are some great people to deal with.

            Mike, There was one long approx 22 ft piece I used for around the doors but those two 5 inch pieces were separate. I don't think they are for this car. There were also 4 pointed chrome trims ends that I don't think belong on this car. The instructions were for all sedans and the Victoria. It made it hard to follow until I had read thru them a few times. Any advice on the shades?

              I think your right that the 5" pieces must be for something else. Those chrome trim ends sound like welt tips. They are used for finishing off the ends of hidem and wire-on welt. They should also have a screw or a nail that goes through the hole of the welt tip.

            Unfortunatly, Doug retired from LB-B after over 50 years of working there, and being the support guy. I dont think they have a replacement. Before he left they hired a kid to train under Doug, but the kid did not pan out, and had no work ethic, so they let him go.

                Another question: There is supposed to be a pullstrap on the back seat to tip the seat forward. Is that a piece of windlace material?

                        Am researching, trying to find info on my Pick Up interior as it looked like as Henry made it.

Also these trucks, have every possible inside Cab space covered with material/cards.

                        I have a Briggs 60A and am starting on the interior which i'll be doing myself. I need to replace all of the interior door panels, areas that wrap around the rear seats, around the windows, and misc trim. I'm wanting something that will last another 100 years and basically is marine grade stuff.

                        The door panels are of thicker yet still pliable material but some the rats have gotten...

                        my 31 Victoria project came with two black trash bags of old interior parts I had not opened. Imagine my delight in seeing this, the best instructions you could ever follow. Every interior panel, carpet and windlaces with every screw or clip or snap hole. I have a new Lebaron Bonney kit and it will be modified as needed by using these patterns.

                        I mentioned in a previous post that I was nearly done and I made progress towards that goal today. I got my interior kit weeks ago. Actually a month and a half ago. I have never done an interior and a local upholster pitched me on how many old cars he has done so I was going to have him do the whole thing. I delivered the seats and the instructions from Classtique and he sat in that for weeks, and...

I Have the original panels to guide me and have been able to follow the original nail holes in some of the wood. In the picture the door panel is not attached, it is just hanging fo a trial fit as is the panel above the door. I called Lebaron Bonney last...

                        Cotton batting material in rear doors and rear interior cavities
                        by gdaquilina
                        When removing the interior from my 155-C I found cotton batting material behind the rear interior panels and in the rear doors between the middle wood support and the metal door skin (see photo). Was this done to prevent squeaks? It seems in the doors it caught moisture and caused surface rust on the inside surface. ...

                        What is the correct name of the fabric covered rubber cord that goes around the inside of the door opening? It looks like it is held in place by a fabric strip that goes in behind the interior panels before they are nailed in place. Is it called "windlace"? Thanks
