Who sells the best quality upholstery kit for a 1914 touring????? rick s..
Elizabeth makes and sells the best.
I second Eric's comment!
Check out Classtique's instruction videos on their website, they are very helpful.
I have used upholstery kits from both Mac's and Classtique.
Both turned out pretty nice in both material and overall quality. They did for me anyway.
I just finished installing the interior and top kits on my '21. They came from Classtique, and I couldn't be happier with them. (There is a pic of the seat on the "T of my Own" thread.) Every bit as valuable as a quality kit is the service Elizabeth provides. When there is an issue with her products, she makes it right with no argument and (in my case) no charge. Classtique costs a bit more than Cartouche, but it's one of those instances where you are paying for top quality, in both product and service.
I have no experience using Mac's Cartouche upholstery kits, but I have heard of enough bad experiences from others that I will continue to avoid them.
I have used both Cartouche and Classtique. FWIW I will only use Classtique now. They may cost more but it is money well spent!
Used a Mac's Cartouche kit for my 27 Touring Everything was ok except rear seat cushion cover was not big enough. Apparently my Canadian built car has a deeper rear seat. Cartouche made up a new one to my measurements at a reasonable cost and I sold the original one to a friend for his 25 Touring.
I helped another member install a Cartouche top kit on his 1926 roadster. It was complete and well made, except that it had very little extra material on the margins. We had to be super-careful positioning the rear curtain and top to make sure we had enough material.
I have not had any experience with Classtique's seat kits, but I did install a Classtique top kit on my 1924 touring/pickup and the margins were much more generous.
My 1924 touring/pickup came with a Cartouche seat kit (still in the box) when I bought it. It had sufficient material at the margins, but I had to add quite a bit of extra cotton to fill out the pleats. Once I did that, it turned out well.
