Kent's post about windlace made me do a bunch of searching for supplies for us do it yourselfers. This site is great they sell to the Public. So you have to buy 15 yards of windlace for 49.00 that 45 feet standard 4 door uses 44 yards. The price makes it so so affordable. In true CASO Style check them out, put that I sent you. Just wanted to see how many Happy Campers we get. They are out of Washington have outlets in Oregon also.

What link on their mainpage to their other pages did you find Windlace on? I tried a lot of the logical ones, no dice!

Windlace is here: http://www.perfectfit.com/154170/products/Windlace-Automotive-Cloth-Covered.html

There is a search box on the top of the page, just plug in windlace and it brings up the finshed windlace and the foam core too.

I purchase most of my upholstery supplies from Perfect Fit. They are a great supplier. A lot of the windlace needs for Studebakers need a fairly long tail so they will fasten securely. Some need a ridge sewn into the tail to fit into a grove that Studebaker built around the door opening to help hold it in place. I usually buy the rubber core for windlace and then sew either the vinal or the cloth material that I used for the upholstery around it to make the windlace. That way you can make the tails as long as you need and can sew a piece of welt core into the tail when needed to fit into the grove.

I just called that perfect fit place. Talked to Bill there and asked for some color samples of windlace before I order. He said he only has one color-card of samples and can't send any samples since the windlace is drop-shipped direct from the importer.

I am not going to buy windlace again without samples first.

Thanks Anne, I am close to needing a headliner as well as other interior parts. I'll check their prices. Bob

Geez, I hate angst.....

www.restorationspecialties.com

Download their catalog, pages 106-107. Call and they will send you a few samples at their expense. I got four samples last week. They paid $2 postage plus enveloping, labor, etc to mail it to me.

Once you look at several internet sites you'll note part number encoding that is similar in many cases between vendors; hence the supplier/manufacturer is the same in many cases.

Peace.
