Now that LeBaron has closed where can I get kick panels and panels for the rumble seat area for a 29 sport coupe and a little later a new top and wood kit, the top will hold together for now but later this year I may put thwe wood and a top.


Thanks
Aaron

Aaron, for wood try:
Classic Wood Products, LLC, 1006 North Raleigh Street, Greensboro, NC 27405, United States or Ford Wood, Phone: 435-749-0037
Fax: 435-687-9239
P.O. Box 1401
Huntington, Utah 84528
Ford Wood can be a little hard to reach sometimes.
There is an ouyfit in the central valley that does kick panels, can't think of their name right now.

I used what was left of the original panels as a template and cut out and covered the panels myself ..

Thanks Gents
I don't have the old panels, so that leaves me out of that

I'll check quiet ride, they made the firewall pad for a C 600 2 ton for me,good people.
I'll keep the other two in mind for the wood.
And I talked to Mike at Classic for the panels.


Thanks again

I would think that a paper template could fairly easily be made by folding the sides to the proper shape . I got a four by eight , thin sheet of paneling from the local hardware store to cut my panels from .

You can buy the cardboard in sheets. Shipping could be a problem. Upholstery cardboard is moisture resistant.

I'll be getting the kick panels from Classic, Mike knows his products and was informative, they'll take a couple weeks to get made.
Ed, have you used wood from either of those two companys, the owner wants me to get a wood kit and a top, classic also does tops, he says about 1000 $ and had said something about some one that did wood kits but I don't remember who.

Am again looking into finding something semi flexible that approximates original kick panels and door cards for my pickup. Am not fond of the plastic rigid style panels.


Would the upholstery cardboard be suitable?


Can you recommend where to purchase?

Aaron,
I purchased my top bows from Ford Wood, my header and 3 door kits came from Classic. The only issue I had was one door kit had two of the same side. I called and they shipped the correct board right away. All wood kits will require some sanding and fitting. I got my top from LB before they went belly up. Check out the chicken wire to make sure it is OK. I used the quite ride instead of that cotton stuff that came with the top kit.

Closed Cab,
Check to see if you have a Keyston Bros or similar supplier in your area for "panel board"

Thanks for the info, but there isn't any chicken wire on this sport coupe.
