I have no idea if they have JoAnn's Fabric where you live but that's where I got mine. 5 foot wide spools, roll off what you need. Nice quality carpet and a Model A is about the easiest car to install into possible. Can't see any need to buy a carpet kit. Roll the edges and sew with an old singer sewing machine, press with an old iron. Not difficult in the least.

A classy Berber from NewYork carpet World is A great alternative to buying a kit. Not for a judged high point but great for a driver! Likely a quarter of the price also !

My wife and I looked everywhere for carpet for our '30 town sedan. One day we were in our local Marc's store (kind of a grocery and misc. store in northern Ohio) and found just what we needed. Did the entire car for $12.00 and have some carpet to spare. She bound the edges on her Singer and have been happy ever since.

I was able to almost match what was in the car (31 deluxe tudor) with LB interior at H/Depot. Bought some edging at JoAnn Fabrics and with a glue gun did the edges after cutting to fit. Came out good !

They took over a lot of the work that LB left stranded. I just received and installed door panels for my pickup from them. Great work!

The Door panels, were they
Covered?
Plastic?
Or did they replicate the original cardboard material?


Thanks

They are covered with a heavy covering that matches the seat material.

The closest match to original Deluxe cars appears to be German style wool square weave available from Miami Corp or others. It's expensive !
