The problem with this restorarion is the material against the frame. I have a Charlotte Ford Trunk catalog,all hardware is available here. I have never found anything on the material. It looks like a curdory with flat up/knap against frame. I was told they used a tar/shoe polish kinda of paint to give it the fake leather look. It also served as an adhesive. I need to know how to replicate this process.
