I bought a 1921 Touring top kit from the JV GROUP about 5 years ago and am just now installing it.
I need a new seat back and the two rear side panels as they are in bad shape.
The seat back has kind of a cross grain pattern with vertical stitches 3 ½ inches apart.
Can they be purchased separately from any source?
You would have to find out what material it is and who they got it from and if it's still being made.

you could ask Classtique if they would make just the parts you need, but I doubt it.
Elizabeth will make up partial kits to your specifications. About a year ago, I asked her if she would do a partial 26-27 coupe kit, as my brother didn't need the headliner. She obliged, but my brother hasn't gotten that far on the car.
that's good to know that she will do that.
Call Elizabeth 1-866-669-6604 or firstname.lastname@example.org ,she will take care of you.
Elizabeth has sold the business to Mike Francis. I met Mike at Chickasha, and he is a fine young man. I have already dealt with him, and I'm sure he will carry on the business as before. The phone number is 800-208-9032. He worked with Elizabeth for four years before taking over.
Call Don Jenkins with Joe's Upholstery 301 662 5006
ELIZABETH SOLD THE BUSINESS!!!!
Is nothing sacred??
I would have expected this kind of news to have it's own thread & a big announcement.
Same address, or are there other changes?

But Elizabeth is still working, but in a different way. She and her husband are now doing mobile installs, using the kits that her former company still makes.
She told me this in Jan, and looks like fun for her and her husband to travel and to also help Model T and A's get new clothes
So if you have a group of T'ers who need work on site, or club function, just pay her way and get on site installs. Pretty neat!
Here is her new website:
