I just received a new shipment of USA made top and door binding. It is exactly like original, and is made of the same grain material as the top material. It is available from Langs and Snyders, and even uses the old style twisted Kraft paper welt.

Hi Larry,
You're speaking of Gimp, yes?

Neat, knew here was a reason I hadn't put my interior in yet! :-)

Twisted paper piping cord is still available. You've seen it many times because it's still used today for paper bag handles.

Today, plastic piping cord is typically used inside upholstery binding. That is what my dad used inside the binding when he made up the trim for his 1900 Waverley.

I originally used plastic in our binding, but when I found out the twisted Kraft was still available, we switched. Our latest run is made out of the same Haartz material that the tops are made from, but is thinner, which is what they use for the binding. Classtique buys their binding from me. If you need an opinion, contact Dan Treace, who is the technical editor for the MTFCI. He has it in a car he recently restored.

Hi Larry,
Good to hear--actually the reason my interior isn't in yet is I'm still waiting to do the body wood! BTW, I picked up a neat Perry pickup bed to replace my very distressed turtle deck! It won't require any extra holes in the body like the Ford bed will (so I can go back to a turtle deck later, if I want to).
Stay dry--really raining here now--YEEES!!
