    For leather, I’ve been using the following company, they only sell wholesale but I was able to get my name on the list, if anyone needs help buying leather I’ll be glad to assist:

    Coast to Coast Leather coast2coastleather.com

    two locations, NJ and NC; 732-5258877 is NJ office

    1 Crossman Road Sayreville NJ

    It’s a shame, I have two local businesses, small shops, but they don’t do stuff through the mail. One is an old time radiator shop, repairs radiators and gas tanks and does a great job. Another is a one-man shop which repairs old starters and generators, as good as it gets and very reasonable, the last starter and generator I brought him were off my ’38 Packard Super 8, complete rebuild of both a little over $200. I’d be glad to be the middle man if anyone wants either service.

    David is right, both of these guys are top shelf, and very old school. If you don’t have anyone local, take David up on his offer.

    For radiator repair I can recommend:

    Elburn Radiator and Repair

    1 South First Street, P.O. Box 928

    Elburn, IL 60119

    Bert Veldhuizen, Owner

    630/365-5800

    I met Bert through the late Scott Stastny, and he cleaned tested and painted the radiator in my 1933. He has a very up to date shop, and seems to have quite a reputation in the antique car field. When I came to pick up my radiator, he showed me a Rickenbacker radiator he was rebuilding for a customer. He’s also involved with the local Studebaker Club in the Chicago area.

    Upholstery Material: I think Bill Hirsch is still the place for wool broadcloth upholstery material (LeBaron Bonney is gone).

    Upholstery supplies- trim fasteners

    Restoration Specialties, restoration specialties.com (+window channel and weatherstrip):

    Restoration Supply restorationstuff.com (+fittings, hardware, electrical)

    If there isn’t a category for this, I would consider adding one for McMaster Carr for general materials and tools for fabrication and repair. They are the go to place for samll orders of a wide range of metals, such as sheet metal, tubing, extrusions, fasteners, etc.

    Instruments: K-S hydrostatic gas gauge fluid: Macs Auto Parts (Ford supplier)

    I understand (second hand) that Classic and Exotic is in the process of closing its doors.

    Upholstery supplies – seat springs: Snyders Ford parts advertise they will make custom seat springs to order (they have been making Ford springs for years). I did not use them personally, as they do not fabricate Marshall coil seat spring units as used in ’30’s Pierce, but if you have nothing they are a possibility.

    I obtained standardized Marshall coil spring units from upholster.com, but they require a lot of modifications to adapt them and may not rise to the level of including them as a source. They are a good source for general upholstery supplies such as hog rings.

    I understand that Classic & Exotic is being taken over by a former employee (Tim), and is now called Straight Eight.

    #411959

    Bob is correct on Straight Eight, I do a fair amount of business with them, none better.
