120C Touring Sedan Roof Insert

Where might I go to obtain the materials to replace the batting and waterproof canvas to install a new roof insert on my 120C Touring Sedan. I did read the forum entry concerning the convertible trim strips, so I'll see about eight getting some manufactured from my source for my vehicle.
Thanks to all for your help.

Colonial Grain rubberized top material is available from either Restoration Supply or Restoration Specialties, forget which but catalogs are available on-line. Generally comes in two patterns, long and short grain. Cotton batting available at most any upholstery supply source.

Thanks and I did find what they call short cobra grain material from Restoration Specialties. Upon viewing a Youtube video where someone was replacing a 1937 Packard 110 roof insert, there was a metal trim piece on top of the material that was also nailed into the wood roofing. I'm having Restoration Specialties send to me a sample of the material as well as what they might have for this trim piece.
Again, thanks for the information. I am again on the way to getting my car on the road.

Just a little more information. Restoration Specialties does have the Sedan Decking (their term) in smooth grain for these roof inserts.
Thanks to all for your expertise.
