I've made new panels for my 71 and have all the original birch with the exception of the front ceiling panel. I guess if you were desperate you could use some of them as they are but their real value is as templates.

I hate to throw them out. If someone needs/wants these and can pick them up, let me know and you can have them. I'm right off I-95 near Fayetteville NC.

It would be cool if they worked their way across the country as templates for everyone. I need them when they get to Az. Very Happy

Related highjack alert. I cannot find 5'x5' Baltic birch panels. I have called half a dozen or more local lumber yards. I called a few out of state places I found on the interweb. I think I found two places out west that could get it, but shipping at that point was exorbitant. Anyone have a source in the S.E.? It would make a good excuse to take a long ride.

Try getting a lumber yard to special order it. That what I do.

I keep getting "We can't get that" from everyplace I've called down here. That translates to "We're to damn lazy to try and get anything we don't normally stock". Ya ever been to S. Fla.? It's a whole different world than the rest of 'Merica.

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

Tried, first few calls 600+/- miles away ( the closest ) "No we can't get that".
Hmm... Think ....1/8" masonite and veneer?

May be worth a call to the local custom cabinet shop, they may have a vendor they can turn you onto.

They are one of the distributors.....BUT.... their Floriduh location only carries marine plywood. I talked to them a few weeks back.
Thanks for the help but I'll try a more creative route. I can get the world of veneers and hardwoods. Shell lumber down here is the place to go for almost ANYTHING needed for making fine furniture, except they don't carry 5'x5' anything.

Capitol City Lumber in Raleigh NC has them.

http://store.capitolcitylumber.com/

Give em a call, they still had some last month when I was there. About $25 a sheet and the friendliest folks around.

My place is on the way, about an hour south Wink

By the way, the 1/8" 5' x 5' is only listed in the 10 pack on their website. You have to call to get the price and availability of single sheets.

Also, shipping is available but very expensive.

I'll call them tomorrow. I am sure I can unload what I don't need. A box of ten sounds good.

No ship! The shipping is pretty shipping expensive. They claim ( through Amazon) that shipping is free. $621.80 for a box of 10. I guess that's not horrible considering Sewfine's average headliner price is around 3 bills.
