Default Arm rest upholstery

With LB gone I need a new upholstery supplier. Does anyone know who would sell me upholstery for the arm rests for a '46-48 Ford without having them custom stitched locally?

What kind of material do you need? Just curious.

Brown or tan vinyl would be fine.

Most upholstery shops have left over small rolls of material laying in their racks from previous years. I would think they would be willing to sell you a remnant that you need.
Also, have you checked your local JoAnn Fabrics or other similar stores. They may have what you need.

I'd like to buy them already sewn into arm rests so I can remove my existing upholstery and recover them.
