This is continuation of the story about Sara's Grandfather's 1915 Touring car....
The upholstery is complete with the vintage leatherette
and the fender has been repaired....
Enjoyed the journey last year. Thank you for carrying it over into 2018
Looks good out in the sunlight !! What became of the front seat upholstery ?!? What's the plan now ?
How did you do the vintage leather look?
Your fender repair is amazing.Hats off to the repairer.I like how the originality has been preserved.
Yes, great fender repair. Outstanding!
Looking great.....thanks for posting an update.
To Rich in Blackfoot, Idaho....the front seat upholstery and springs have been gone for many years....The wood frame was in excellent condition. The Back seat upholstery on the seat cushion was in shreds and spring was bent and broken. The only original remaining upholstery was the back rest of the back seat and it was in very poor condition.
To mark Lynn....the vintage leatherette came from Big Z Fabrics in California...see my 2017 thread.
It needed upholstery and I did not want a "new" look.
The clutch appears to need replacing so my next project is to remove the engine, replace the clutch and bands and install rings while the engine is out.
Here's a close up of the upholstery
Thank you for the "rest of the story". I couldn't seem to locate the previous thread. Great job on the new/old upholstery !!
