New interior
 
Anyone have a preference of vendors for an interior package for a 57? I have all the supplier's catalogs and the prices are about the same. Just wondering if one supplier has better quality than the other?

I am not sure but I think most of the interiors come from the same vendor regardless of who you bought it from.

Jed Zimmerman here on the Forum does 58-60 foam but I don't know if he does Baby Bird stuff.

Ray or Dave D probably know.

He is Ca58tbird in Clearwater, MN.

Jed does seat foams not only for our Squarebirds, but for all 1958-1966 Tbirds. He also does complete steering wheel restorations. You can PM him using his user id listed below, or his contact information is listed in the Advertisements Forum under Jed Zimmerman Restorations. I know that he has not done any seat foams for Babybirds, but he can, if he has the old seat foams as patterns and other information. If interested contact him for details.

Thanks Jim and Ray, I do not have the patterns and templates for the little birds. So if the foams are available thru aftermarket suppliers, that'd be the best way to go. For foams not available thru parts houses, I can make patterns and templates and fabricate new foams. I've done Mustangs, Falcons and a few others over the years.

I don't know who makes them, but I got mine from CASCO and I am very happy with them

Thanks for the replies. I've asked vendors for some vinyl samples, but that will only tell part of the story.
