"Ohh ok.  If I understand correctly The face of the top binding is sewn to the board and the carpet panel is then hinged down to glue and wrap the edges?  Thanks for the help.  "

"in that case, you sew the top binding on the board(over the carpet) face down first, then you do the edge binding with the top binding pulled up.   Same way, sew it face down and then fold over."

Door panel carpet replacement.

I have a 63 series 62 coupe and I would like to replace just the carpet on my door panels.   Has anybody done this before?  I know there is stitching through the board,  I’m curious to know how the upper fabric, the binding, and the carpet tie together at the seam.  Any feedback would be helpful before I start taking things apart.   Thank youPhil  See More

Fuel Pump Failure

Posted by Jon Shields on August 6, 2022 at 6:48am 4 Comments

From what I can now determine, the diaphragm pushrod…
