Hopefully trimacar or one of our other resident upholstery experts sees this thread and points you in the right direction.

I know trimacar has said many times before that you never, ever let someone use foam in a pre-war car.

It should be cotton batting and genuine burlap only.

But one of our experts here can give you details that I will never know.

 

Good luck with the interior, the car is coming along nicely.

Just started following this story and enjoying it very much. You are a very hard working restorer!

Best of Luck, you should find lots of GOOD help and advice on this forum.

I can't agree more. I just wish I could find a younger or healthier AACA forum member, who lived near me, who could physically help with the restoration of my 1914 Humberette, as my health is failing and I am finding doing the work more and more difficult to do. If you ever meet the person who said "life begins at 40" - don't believe it!

I believe the name is "hydem welt"  and its comparable alternative is called "wire-on" / Wireon / Wire On

Great to see all the work you have done... love to hear a bit more of the story... how was the wood? Loose at all?

I agree this should be posted in the restoration project forum. My project is going at a much much slower pace..

Apolo, 

    Would you consider moving your post to the Buick Pre War Technical topic postings.  I was not aware of this thread and there are other Buick owners that will participate as  well.  

 

Regarding your fuel pick up line.  That is a brake line soldered on.  The correct dimensions for the fuel pick up line, and the screen you need are in the Big book of parts.  Attached is a link to walk you thru replacement.      Hugh

Probably need a Moderator/Administrator to make such a move. Maybe click on the "Report Post" icon in the top right corner of your posts(need to "hover" over it for it to show up) and ask them to do that?
