Interior Kits

Hey guys does anyone happen to know what those interior kits they sell for early trucks are made of . I'm doing a 48 Ford pu and see those kits on ebay.
Never used one and dont know a thing about them. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Ricco

Just like the originals, they are a cardboard product. I havn't used one either, made my own with vinyl.

Thanks Poncho so just something to use to put your fabric over. Seems like a lot of money. Could you explain how you did yours a little. Thanks Ricco

For the roof section, I built a wooden framework, contoured to the roof.....Stapled the fabric to it. The sides and back window area was easier. Just attached it to the metal framework.

Sounds good to me. Interior is my weak point so bear with me.

On the back I take it you had the fabric on somekind of backing. What should I use for that ? And thanks you have really been a big help. Ricco

I did this about 10 years ago. I was a rookie at it then too....still am I guess. Anyways, I didnt use a backing. It is quite stiff material that I used. If I get a chance tomorrow, I will shoot a couple of pictures of it and post them here.

Like I said...it was 10 years ago, but I think I butted it up to the interior steel flanges, drilled a hole through it and put a screw into the wood........Going out to take some pics now.

Got some pictures. Don't know if they will help much, but you might get the idea. The vinyl isn't as streaky as in the pictures. It's cold in the garage and I think its condensation on the camera.........lol.
