Default Back from the upholstery shop

I finally got my 48 Tudor Sedan back form the upholstery shop and couldn't be happier with the results.

Very nice! Love the color combo. I was going to have Lebaron Bonney do something similar, but now I'll need to find another way . . .

Ditto on all the compliments, I love the dash. Did you refinish the steering wheel? It looks great.

Thanks Everyone. To answer a few questions in one post.



I took my original steering wheel and refinished it. 95% of this car is all original to this car. If not original, it is period correct and mostly NOS parts.


The upholstery shop took about 2.5 months to complete. It could of been done sooner but I allowed them to jump to other immediate need projects as a favor. The shop is Elite Glass and Trim in Houston, Tx. Upholstery guys that worked on the car were Mike and Mundo. Top notch guys and very attention to detail.
