Does anyone know who is making the red cardboard panels located at the vent door areas of cd's or a method of reproducing them?

I would like to thank everyone for the tech. help they've given me on restoring my 47 pickup. I need original-style door panels and headliner does anyone have these? or make them? or know where I can get some?

The panelboard material is the same type the Model A Ford people use, a medium/dark tan, cut to size and edged with aluminum strips. I have a NOS interior for a 46-early 47 CC still in the big cardboard package, can get pictures if you want. Good luck

Does anyone know if the 47 pickup had inside door panels and what they might look like if so? I purchased my Crosley this winter and am trying to make it right. Thanks Rich

The early pickups did not have any door panels. When they started adding panels they were a solid paperboard material with a brown paper leather grain covering. Jim...

 

 

Interior suggestions

What is good to redo the interior of the car that appears close to the OEM stuff??? Since I am building cars that appear stock I would like to do some thing similar to original. My 51 does have original kick panels, but I don't know how to replicate the rest of the interior.

The interior panels on the wagon are cardboard with a grey ribbed pattern. I found an exact grey ribbed pattern at a Sherwin Williams wallpaper store, and you can put that over a correct thickness board. upholstery is not too bad if you have a sedan, check the plain greys available from any number of old car upholstery sources. Good luck, If I get the time I'll get the information from Sherwin Williams.
