Cushioned Seat Material

Postby peteburrs » Fri Oct 19, 2012 6:20 pm

Looking to reupholster the seats on my Holiday 250 Cruiser this winter and I am hoping someone might have a suggested source for materials that are close to what they used on my 59'. The materials are black and white. The black is an upholstery type material with an oval pattern and the white is a vinyl type material with a texture that looks similar to beadboard/wainscot/etc. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Karl,
Does he only stock boat upholstery or does he also stock old auto stuff on bolts? The link didn't work for me.

Verne.
They have auto as well as boats and lots of material as well.
I don't know how to post a link so I just posted the web address.
If you type that in on your computer it should bring them up.

Here is another company as well.
www.universalupholstery.com
They specialize in vintage stuff.
What are you working on?

Thanks a lot. I'm into early '60s Chevys and some of the original materials are not available through reproduction sources. It's always nice to find an old upholsterer who has NOS bolts of material on the shelves.

My original '60 Sea Coaster never had upholstery (must have been an option) so I'm doomed to floatation seat custions.

Verne :?
PS: I just sent emails to both of them with inquiries. Thanks a lot for the references!

Try these guys, they specialize in classic auto materials... have it in stock or can actually make a custom matched pattern. I used them several years ago to match vinyl in my Lone Star Malibu restoration.
