Re: Tan Bedouin Grain Leather - Where to buy?

Bridge of Weir in Scotland. Check with local Auto trim shops or supply houses.

Re: '29 roadster upholstery question

Depends on what you want. Pleats or plain. On average most upholstery fabric runs 54 inches wide. You need to calculate (add) boxing's ( seat bands ) and welt cord.
