Any of you guys have photos of finished trip using Classtique Upholstery? I'm specifically looking at how the doors and side panels are trimmed out. I tried calling them today, but no answer. I'm guessing they are at Chichasaw.

Thanks! Almost complete!

Here's how it's done on my '25. You may need to add a strip across the door and panels where the cross wood is (a few inches below the latch)

was there never a strip with tacks from front to back where the wood cross piece is located in the door?

Depends. Some '15's were that way, some were not. Maybe a difference from one body supplier to the next, or an early / late thing? Here's a factory photo of a '15 and it has the center trim piece:

Yes, there was, but I don't know when that stopped. I've seen it on some '15's and not on others. My 25 doesn't have them, and isn't supposed to.

Perfect! Thanks guys. Looks like I'll need a few more thumb tacks.

I used Classtique and am very pleased with their interiors. A few pictures of my door panels and trim. I tacked panels in place prior to applying trim with tacks. '20 Touring, don't have the center horizontal tack strip as the brass era.

John...Thanks..The trim came in three types:

Black strip - black on both sides.
Black strip - black on one side, blk and wt on other
Black rubber bead

Did you just use the black/black strip for the doors?
Also, I can't tell by the photo how you handled the door handle. The provided piece does not come with cut outs for the handle.

All...where there still cross strips on the door in 1916?

Thanks!

Michael

I like the center dividing line myself from early photo, it's looks good!

Michael,
I used the black trim that is folded over on the back. The Original is about 1/8" narrower and has a cotton cord in it. I believe this a sample was from seat back area. I peeled back one side and refolded to match width (I know may be overdoing it a bit here). The black vinyl beaded trim I only used on seat backs. seemed a bit difficult and unnecesary to install on panels. The door panels came with all the cutouts included. I believe there are several types/manufacturers of door latches and you need to know that.

It all depends on how original you wish to have your car. First of all the original binding for the doors and seat trim and top was 9/16" wide, with a piece of welt on one side. The binding that Car Touche sells is not correct. I have given them the opportunity to buy the correct binding, and they do not wish to do so. You can buy it from Langs, and Snyders. We use the correct twisted Kraft welt in ours, just like the old days, and this makes it easier to go around corners. When installing around corners, the binding is folded under, not cut, and covered with an upholstery nail. The closest upholstery nails are available from Witmer Coach in New Holland, Pa. We also make the correct binding for the rear window on cars made from '17 on, which is 5/8" wide. This is also used on the side curtains. We are the only supplier that makes this type of binding, but we don't sell retail. Elizabeth at Classtique also buys from us, because she likes the original detail of our product. If you want a kit that is high quality, and as close to original as possible, my suggestion is to buy from Classtique.
