First off I owe Joe an apology for my interpretation of his use of Khaki, I thought of it as a color and after reading the information supplied by Packardbarry it was also a material used up to about 1915. I now understand what I have heard about SMS Auto Fabrics, hard to contact and had to leave a message. I wonder if they will respond. Looks like I might have to use Stayfast if correct material is unavailable

Thanks Packardbarry: I have been doing a little research and believe the 28 originally used a cotton material which was reproduced by Haartz for Lebaron Bonney. Haartz stopped making the cotton material when when Lebaron Bonney closed.
It was suggested that SMS bought what was left, will call them Monday. Other wise it looks like I will have to use Stayfast.

Thanks Joe; I believe that 42 was the first year for Packard to use many different colors, My 42 top is dark brown or walnut. AS my 28 is two tone blue I will use tan, khaki or the lightest color I can find. My question was directed towards the top material that was available in 1928 and would be correct for the Packard.

It's time for a new top for my 28 convertible coupe. Am I correct in stating that plane canvas is correct? Thanks

It's a nasty job that can be done in the car. It is a rope seal and unless you are an experienced with this task I would not try it.

It could just be the drive. Put your have on it when it is running and see if it feels as if it is running. Not that hard to remove, cable and one bolt-it is heavy!

Wes; PM me your shipping information. It should be about $5 to ship in a padded envelope and add what you think is a fair price and I will get it in the mail. Jon D. Fuiks 5637 Delcliff Cir. Sacramento, CA 95822. Happy Packarding PS I also have several sets of good shifting arms. Have one ready for you now, should be able to put a bulb in and install. Took one picture in the closet to get the flash.

Wes; I was looking for something and can across several bushings, dir you find any?
