Cathie, without now looking at the pics, that is either Sailor or Jazmine in the pics. Sailorette is the X's yellow lab. Jazmine is a real helper when it comes to working in the shop as she always has gotta be right beside me. You can check out the advert I run here in the Squarebirds.org services offered section for some basic info and pricing. Or you can email me, askhow@aol.com, and I shall send you a complete discertation on the actual "how to" of what I do to restore a wheel, and a break down of materials used. Thanks for asking!

Hey Cathie, if you like I can send you the old vinyl off of my door panels after I get new ones. I dont know if they would do you any good as a pattern because the door panels have shrunk about 3/4 of an inch. It would give you an idea as to how they are made and the stitching on the arm rests.

Can keep that in mind...its not so bad working off of something you know has a flaw - would be nothing to add the extra....
thanks!

I failed miserably to get a photo of the texture of the material on the '58. Meager photography skills...

The material seems to be leather simulated in the same manner as the stick-on vinyl that Ford used on my console and the tops of the doors (both cases stuck on to metal).

The lower white portion is the same and the ovals are the same.

So it does have texture to it and it does have grooves and so on. It is not just smooth vinyl.

If I can snooker the camera into a good photo I will still get one. I might have to... heaven forbid...read the camera manual!!

Till then... file me under "not much use"....

john
