oatmeal vinyl

PostPost by: kstrutt11 » Sun Oct 26, 2014 8:46 pm

Over the winter I plan to make new under dash trims out of alloy sheet and will need some oatmeal vinyl to cover them, l has anyone found a source of vinyl which is a good match for the original?

These people have a pretty good range, I have been contemplating buying material from them for my black +2 interior.

Salut John

Interesting supplier - thanks. I think I'll ask them for a sample of their fluted basketweave to see how it matches.

To John and other potentially interested others, I have some original unused oatmeal interior pieces for a +2. I'd have to do an inventory, but some carpeting and some of the vinyl trim.

Hi Y'All

Am looking at doing a similar project i.e. I ordered the under dash trim and now need to trim it in black vinyl. Can anyone recommend the correct supplier. I note the link below was used in a thread above but wonder if there is an OEM supplier for the vinyl used by Lotus.

Thanks
Gareth
