How much material for a 34 ford interior?

I'm planning on doing the interior on my car I'm building. I've done boat interiors in the past, so this will just be one new challenge. I've been looking at this material called ultra leather. It's quite expensive so I don't want to be way off in my estimates of how much material to buy. With my 34 ford coupe I figure two seats, two door panels and two kick plates. Maybe a headliner. Anyone out there that can give me an idea of how much material to buy. Oh yeah, the material comes 54 inches wide. Please no guessers, I'm looking for someone that really knows what their talking about.

I'm in the same position as you, I also have a 34 Ford that will eventually need interior. I will be watching this thread. I would suspect that Kristkustoms can accurately answer this question.

When I done the interior in my 53 olds I used 22 yards of tweed,I used it on everything including covering the trim around the windows,package shelf and I covered the padded dash. If you are only going to do the seats,door panels,package shelf if it has one and the front kick panels and possibly the firewall area and headliner I would get at least 15 yards if you are going to do it all in the same color. I would not recomend getting close out materials as you might need more and none might be available again. If there is anyone doing a small interior in maroon I have what I think is 10 yards of marroon tweed and a matching hide of leather that I bought for my truck but never used. Jeff

I just bought some vinyl for my 1931 Desoto interior. I am going to be upholstering:

-1 Bench Seat
-1 Rumble Seat
-2 Door Panels
-1 Headliner
-The Inside Of The Trunk

I ended up ordering 35 yards of the fabric for this job. It is more than I needed, but it's always good to have extra laying around, because if you ever need more, you don't have to worry about the colors matching.

Hope this helps!

I'd order 20 yards, maybe a bit more if your covering the underside of the trunk lid, adding a console etc.

Wise man. Big sedans like that, with a trunk, will easily use 30-32 yards.
