Re: interior upholstery kits

Funny thing since they are the sole supplier (-they are the ones having it made and sell to the resto us) for most Model-A interior materials. What bodystyle & fabric did you order??

Re: valve tool needed

I don't trust online reviews for anything!! Basically, most negative reviews are posted as a retaliation for that consumer's own ignorance. :rolleyes:

Re: Model A Trader Magazine
