  • Restoration question,...Top Upholstery..

    Rusty Nelson and I are trying to figure out "locktite", "split hidum" and "wire-on" as well as "edge binding" as to were they go, which cars?
    How are they used? Is there a book,...or did I miss it in the JS's...?

    The pictures of these are in the JS's on page 9-3 of the 2016 revision...

    You probably don't want to hear this, BUT Vermin has NO raingutters, only HIDE-EM-WELT! Looks good & no one ever criticized them. ("Maybe" they jist felt SORRY fer me?)

      DJ, might be best to e-mail Marco and ask him. I have often wondered also, but did not want to seem the fool. I honestly can say the interior and top terminology baffle me. Since that stuff will be near the last of my restoration I have not even begun to figure it out. Possibly report back if you get an answer we can get our minds around or atleast know where to look for these details for our body styles. Thanks Rod

            Mark, that's an amazing job of getting the grain of the welt to match perfectly to the angle of the top material.

              Chapter 7 notice
              by Mike V. Florida
              Got my LB chapter notice in the mail today. Not sure what I need to do in anything as I assume since they sent the notice to me they know they have my money. Anyone ever deal with this before?

              Painting my T
              by George Miller
              Hope Dave gives some advice on this. I have been sanding my T coupe body. It was left out side for a long time. Most of the paint is gone, it has a lot of surface rust only two places that it rusted through. I have sand blasted and sanded but still see rust in the metal in the bottom of the pits. What is the best way to fix that.

              I'm not a real body man, but I have painted my own cars,...

              Its amazing to me how many people do krylon overhauls on engines.Who get into an engine repair,post pictures and ask questions,then when faced with a response to their question they dont like choose to ignore the advice.They pull the oil pan and head,rant and rave about the sludge they found,ask why their valves sit low in the seats and post pictures of cylinder walls that look like fun house mirrors,then...

              Upholstery material
              by Dennis
              Who has the best matching upholstery material available? After discovering the correct material on my rear seat and comparing it to the samples from a year ago that I received from LeBaron Bonney, they don't match. The LB sample looks blue with a gray hairline while my seat material looks gray with a blue hairline. I know there are others out there that have kits and materials available, so I'd...

              Couple of general questions
              by BNCHIEF
              1. I have called LeBarron Bonney, i have e-mailed them on a purchase they do not return calls or e-mails what is up with them?

              2. I have repeatedly attempted to cancel my reservation at the Edwardsin Dearborn calls and e-mails etc nothing from them at all. what bothers me is they have our credit card info from reservations, I talked to the chamber of commerce there and pretty much...

              How much is it worth? Original 1928 Tudor
              by Jordan
              I have considered getting another Model A to tinker with for a little while now- but a school teacher I can only afford so much. I have ALWAYS wanted an "original" car to make into a "grapes of wrath" type vehicle to just have fun with. I almost got one last year- but someone else got to it literally 30 seconds before I did.

              I found this 28 Tudor and the owner is asking...

              Interior Cab Panel/Card Material, Late 30 Closed Cabg
              by 1930 Closed Cab PU
              Am researching, trying to find info on my Pick Up interior as it looked like as Henry made it. What I remember from seeing other trucks that have been refurbished, interior panels/cards on those trucks were vinyl covered panels, or plastic panels. Also these trucks, have every possible inside Cab space covered with material/cards.

              I think my truck, which has a couple of door cards...
