  1. Roadmaster convertible that I was restoring is almost finished, but in 2020 nothing was really done to it, as I was waiting for upholstery materials from SMS Auto Fabrics that I have ordered in September 2019! Yes, 1,5 year of waiting and I still haven't received everything that I have ordered. I haven't received carpet material and here is my question. I ordered that carpet material from SMS as I was not able to find dedicated carpet from any vendor for '54 Roadmaster convertible. But ACC makes such carpet for Roadmaster 2dr hardtop. Any idea if it will fit into convertible? I assume the main
  2. Hi, sorry for being slow. Yes I bought that upgraded setup from eBay. As you can see it's mounted on the frame but car is still under restoration, so I can't tell anything elese about how it works. Installation was rather straight foreward, only one hole has to be drilled in the crossmember part of the frame. I just had to make my own brake lines as those included in the set were not useful.
  3. To late, body is already on the frame. Wheel color matches body color. This car originally painted Willow green, with dark green interier but during all those years it was repainted to dark green, like Baffin green. Because of the trim that perfectly devides the side of the body we decided that the main color will be dark green like Baffin and lower light green like Willow.
  4. It has all power options, including power windows, power seat, power antenna, power convertible top.
