After 5 years of looking for samples of original
1918 coupelet upholstery material and trim I received an early Christmas present today.
15 yds of newly weaved material and trim showed up today. At times I did not think there was any
one that could copy it. After finding 2 ladies in Me. and importing thread from Germany the project started. THe last word from them was they would do it again but not at the same price.
Now comes the easy part restoring the car, I hope it does not take 5 years.
That sounds exciting Mike. Can you make a few pics?
Maybe I did it backward. I started with the chassis first then I got to the upholstery.
... this is very interesting, I purchased a few years ago uppholstery from Cartouche, but got the wrong color. Want a fabric sample to my 1918 Coupelet if possible.
See the picture on my door upholstery, here you can see that the bottom part is completely wrong.
