What kind of material is this??

I know it might be kind of hard to see, but I am not sure what kind of material this is. I used that fabric paint on them, but it doesn't look very good. I need black seats. They are from a conversion van. There are two armrests for the capitains chairs. I would like to cover both front seats, and the bench seat in the back of a 37 Ford Tudor. Thanks.. Al

This type of fabric is called Velour. The fabric itself is probably made of nylon, polyester, olefin, or acrylic. It would be automotive grade, so it would be pricey.

That is contract fabric, which makes it very durable, and suitable for offices, waiting rooms, etc. What it is not is pliable, soft to the touch, and easy to work with for anything other than flat panels and simple furniture.

This is what you're looking for, there are three different patterns and you could mix and match two of them. CLICK HERE

I understand that you're trying to keep the cost down, but you only need about 7 or 8 yards for your seats and this stuff would be $140 or $160. Don't be penny wise and pound foolish with the fabric you choose. Get some samples first and see what the difference is.

No, the headliner isn't glued to the roof, it would still have to be about 1 1/2" to 2" below the roof one way or the other.

I found a couple of pictures out there this morning. Which way do you think I should go?? I have those bows.. They were laying on the floor when I bought the project, so I don't know what goes where. Though in the book I am reading.. I skipped to the back and it shows how 1x2's were used to make a framework that paneling was screwed to. I have found a place that sells headliners, and there is one for my 37 Tudor there. I don't think I could do something like that. Al

Buy the headliner and hire someone to install it.
