Hi there...As I am in N. America....would be different to what you could find in the UK. Custom made y the auto paint supply company.

I have the product mixed to match, Not cheap...a large spray bomb is about 16 pounds......but well worth it as the contact cement did stain the vinyl.

Low sheen....satin type finish.

Still wondering if it would have been easier to use NC cards etc.....then again, original seems to hold more grace when you show or sell.

Just finished restoring one of the front seats...far from perfect but I must say....for a 51 year old seat...it came up looking pretty darn good. Best of all...the interior will be all original.

Looks very good Dermott.

Is this for the German 67 S?

Hi Iain
No, my German S is red/black and is a complete car...show piece...this is another 67 that I am restoring....quite a late car.
So far...good progress.

Have one of the front cards finished...again...far from perfect but that is not what I am trying to achieve here. Just want to be able to state honestly that the car has it's original interior.
Before and after pictures.
Now, onto the other side :lol:

Nice work Dermott, I guess the bottom damage is pretty much covered but the bin liner anyway?

Wow!

Some of my door cards vinyl is slightly wrinkled.
Will same process , soaking with warm water and leaving flat with weights work for that?
Or
Will vinyl peel off delaminate from board?
