  • 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.

          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.

            Now that you mentioned the place, i think this may have been discussed a while ago

            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?

                      I am full of questions this morning. Does anyone remember a post or article showing where a Victoria owner had original looking assist straps or footmans loops made? Thanks, Too much coffee Art

                        I now think that article was in a Victoria Bustle. I will look when I get home from work. This doesn't count as talking to myself does it?
