Apart from Newton Commercial
Where could I source some Morris mk1 trim on a roll in Tartan Red for a 63/64 model?
This is the grain and colour

What is peoples opinion on the Newton Commercial Tartan Red?
Didn't want to replace the lot, maybe only the seats or so. Just didn't want it looking mismatched from the original that's ok to reuse

Thanks

if you contact newton they will send a small sample for review, I used the newton rear arch covers on my mk1, but was porcelain green, matched ok to existing parts and not many would notice, but red does tend to fade more with age so might not be so easy.

just had one of my mk1 recliners retrimed in part with Martrim tartan red, the colour and texture of the
ICI range is very similar if not perfect, they will send you a sample.

It's exactly the same as Newton use.

As is the Porcelain Green & Black. Probably a few other colours too.
