          Victoria Interior Information!

          Some Victoria Interior (unfinished) pics. The pictures thru the door glass is to show the little rubber piece that attaches to the center of the window garnish and on the opposite side in the door as an anti rattle. I could only find them at Bob Drake and they were listed for 1932 But they were on the 31 Victoria and are mentioned in an article about window installation in a Victoria Association " Victoria Bustle" article.

            This from LeBaron Bonney. Neat to watch about 14 minutes. You can see what is involved in installing a Roadster top.

                Tudor Rear Seat

                Original Thread

                In 2014 our Model A club had a demonstration put on by Elizabeth of Classtique Upholstery, showing how to reupholster a Tudor rear seat.
                Elizabeth sure does nice work, and makes it look easy. Too bad I didn't have a video camera for this job. Notice the nice frame Elizabeth made to compress the seat springs while doing the upholstery work. The last picture shows the bead on the rear of the seat, and when Elizabeth pulled on the bead center material, the entire bead fell into place nice and tight with a straight edge.

                  29 Town Sedan

                  This nice original 1929 Town Sedan showed up at our annual swap and car show a couple years ago.
                  It sure is nice when people have enough sense to keep a nice original car original, instead of thinking they are improving it by restoring it.

                    Town sedans had that extra cording around the headliner. Here are a few photos of a 29 town sedan I had a few years ago. It was restored to a very high quality using the original interior as a guide.

                        Here is a picture of the lace on a door panel from the Tudor interior kit Classtique made more than 20 years ago.
                        I bought the upholstery and wood kit from a hot rod owner that was going to customize his Tudor.

                            30 Tudor Windlace Install

                            Original thread


                            I replaced the windlace in my 1930 tudor sedan the original stuff was all tore up from where people get in and out of the car. I bought the material from Classtique I am also replacing the side panels on the doors since they are getting shoddy and some of the clips are pulled. Larry's40 told me how to get the rear window moldings out but he jsut started laughing when I asked about replacing the dove tail rubbers in the door and that is another story and project.

                                            Stationary arm rests removal, re-upholster, re-attach. Murray Town Sedan 155-C

                                            Original Thread


                                            Started today to remove Walter's interior. The solidly mounted rear stationary arm rests were the ending points of my work today and I plan to tackle them tomorrow. I could not find any diagrams or instructions for their removal, re-upholster, and re-attachment. HELP!!

                                              I assume have removed the rear seat backrest cushion. Usually the armrest cover overhangs the armrest wood base. There should be a flat head wood screw (#10 I believe) probably about 1" from the end of the wood. If the screw head is not visible over the fabric then there should be a slit in the fabric there to work through.

                                              The front of the armrest is attached to a forward facing hook on the body. Once the screw is removed, work the back end up and down about an inch each direction while applying forward pressure on the armrest. If it seems too stubborn, some careful, light tapping from the rear end of the armrest may be helpful.

                                              You may want to check with Classtique Upholst. and have them do the recover ( if needed) because of the welting. I had Le Baron Bonney cover mine a few years ago .

                                              Marco- Thanks so much for the great information. I found the wood screws, removed them, and the armrests popped right off when I wiggled then and pushed them forward. Those screws were pretty well hidden- I would not have found them without knowing they were there.

                                              Clsstique told me that they would provide the completed covers for the armrest forms. The originals had the welding sewn to the fabric cover. I imagine the Classtigue ones would be the same.

                                              The LB covers required a separate welting so you had to mess with three layers instead of one along the top. The plus side (for them) was that it was simpler AND it allowed for a wide array of adjustments when installing. Classtigue may do the same.

                                              When I was doing interiors I copied the originals.
