lebaron bonney
 

Got confirmation that I get to keep my refund of $180 from LB. They charged my card 10 days before closing. Sure wish they had mailed out what I ordered as I ended up with not enough matching hidem to finish my 41 woodie interior. I'll have to use the closest I can find I suppose. Bummer!

I tried several times in the last months before they closed to order but never got what I wanted or they were out of part of the order.

Check with your local auto upholsterer. They have catalogs/samples and can order hidem from their suppliers for you. I'm sure the LB hidem was not something special just for LB kits.

Tom,


With respect, they often custom made (or had custom made) the hidem to match original samples or to match customer-supplied upholstery and/or top material, at least for several of my projects.

Consider yourself lucky, I am out 10X that amount.

Dave, thanks for the reminder. I forgot they would do custom items to match original pieces. We are definitely going to miss LeBaron-Bonney.

Anyone had dealings with MTM from Rhode island.
They have given me a pretty good price and delivery for a 39 deluxe convertible coupe top.

Not everyone would agree with you regarding SMS.

Yes, I have just received a top for a 60 dodge phoenix, and the quality looks excellent.

I have yet to fit it.
