Is this "elephant hyde"?

While looking around for "Wilton carpet" I found on a related page something that looks like the textured vinyl my S2 needs, called RM48:

Does anyone know? Thx. John

RM 48 looks close, similar to both my S1 and 2

Are there any elephants hyding in the UK or is it the same as frog skin?

Wouldn't Toad skin be more appropriate? Frogs are smooth skinned.... :lol:

This might help. It's a pic of the "genuine" replacement hide from America. Looks identical to the stuff that was fitted to my first S2 I had in 1968
