  • 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.

              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...

              I do not mean this to be a bashing thread so please don't just trying to put together some ideas and a guideline, if good mention it if negative feel free to mention that as well but give reasons why. This is what I am looking at and I know all states have minimums so it depends on where you live. I want to insure the following.

              The Cooling System.
              by DaWizard
              As some of you might know or have figured, I have been doing extensive work to my cooling system to get it into an optimal performance situation.

              Well, the question came up if was I using antifreeze? Well, I haven't been, and since to clean my filter I need to drain a gallon off the top, I figured it's easier and much cheaper to run water and some rust inhibitor. We all know the problems
