Anyone got some shots of a 15 interior they can post/send me? I'm about ready to try putting mine in and wonder about attaching kick panels,etc.
Could you post them? I would like to see them too.
Here's what I have...
: ^ )
Thank you for the pictures. I don't have a '15 but I do always enjoy looking at pictures of original unrestored upholstery. There is so much information to be gleaned by examining a car such as yours. Thank you, again. Bill
Great photos Keith. I always enjoy looking at unrestored pictures. I recently got a new run of upholstery binding, and it's available from Langs. Whats the story on your horn button? Has it been removed, and they put the screws back in?
The car is not mine. I dunno who's car it is. I harvested the pictures from somewhere. Maybe the owner will step forward.
Notice that on the original upholstery, the first section of the arm rest is leather. I had original doors and I don't remember the extra row of tacks across the door.
BTW. I was able to fix the coil spring in the door clasp with a piece of spring steel from a windshield wiper. The original brass has a natural fatigue spot at the hub.
Here's what my 1915 Touring looks like on the inside:
The backrests are a little over-stuffed to be absolutely correct and of course, the mini-panel with the ammeter and rotary switch isn't original. I believe the smooth pedals are correct and consistent with a late-production car (#767495) built in May. I've read that the hand Klaxon isn't original, but I haven't seen too many 1915-16 open cars without one. The steering wheel should be painted black, but I like the look of red-stained and varnished wood grain too much.
