UPHOSTERY KITS
« on: June 15, 2010, 03:04:09 PM »

I HAVE HAD VERY GOOD LUCK WITH THE ABC UPHOSTERY KITS. ABC HAS BEEN SOLD TO LABARON BONNY ,AND YOU CAN REQUEST SAMPLES FROM THEM. THEY MAKE 57 KITS FOR ANY MODEL FROM A CUSTOM , FAIRLANE,RANCHERO, SUNLINER OR SKYLINER. HOPE THIS HELPS TOM

Thanks Wildhog,, Do you know where a guy can get a full front set of seats including the power switch and motor? My 57 Skyliner came with power seats but when I bought it they were gone.. are all 57-59 seats the same? 

See ya

Doug I believe all the seat frames are the same but the mount that it bolts to is different from the manual seat track.  Not gospil, some one else may know for sure.

Are there other alternatives to Labonny for kits?
I love their product and they do incredible work but it just about broke the bank on my A roadster... I cant imagine selling a kidney to do the ranch wagon.  :burnout:

Im here in Oregon pronounced Ory-gun for you guys back east so Im not to far from sms auto fabrics, I took my seat out of my ranchero to them and had it redone in the original material and door panels made from the original patterns they had , they turned out beautiful and fit perfectly, there warehouse is amazing racks with rolls of original material as far as you can see for just about any make model and year.

I ordered a whole bunch of interior stuff from automotiveinteriors.com and i will prepare a formal review once i get stuff installed. So far all the stuff i have looks good quality, but won't be able to comment on fit until i install. I got front and back vinyl seat covers, wind-lace, headliner and carpet. I haven't received the carpet and wind-lace yet, but it is on the way according to USPS. The customer service has so far been good, haven't had any issues. Apparently they sent my carpet to Germany or something but already had replacement stuff on the way by the time i heard about it.

If anyone has any questions and wants any specific pictures just let me know.

I put a complete kit in my 57 Skyliner from LeBaron Bonney.My only complaint is that they put the silver threads in the red breathable Naugahyde insert.  I have the original upholstery from the back seat, and there is no metallic thread in the upholstery.  Apparently it was put in the black upholstery, but not the red.  I don't know if it was in the other colors.

I was very disappointed in the one piece I ordered from Lebaron Bonney for my green convert. Color was all wrong, almost a military green. Returned it, they were good about a refund. Got my interior from Larry's T-bird. I supplied the patterns, material was from SMS. Took SMS a year and a half to ship. Seems to be typical for SMS.
