    Unusual leather on 73.5 911T

    Has anyone ever seen leather with this grain on a 911 dash before?

    Looks like standard vinyl dash for '72 - '73 911's. Here is what elephant hide looks like for '68 so it is not that.

    standard vinyl looks like the vinyl on kick panel and dash. This 911 was ordered with all leather interior, even door panels and back seats. This not standard vinyl.

    My car, an early '73 T (1972 build) had exactly the same grained vinyl with everything else leather confirmed per the CoA so I don't think there's much special going on with that grain.

    Should be the same as a door panel from same year. Check with Jim at EASY you could even use the material from the rear side panels. The vinyl on the early 914 door panels should be pretty close also. Maybe buy these panels and redo the whole dash.

    If you can't find any get a hold of me. I have a door panel that I'm saving the material from to replace the vinyl on my dash. The door panel has a speaker hole cut in it which is why I'm using it , but I could cut a piece off for you.
    Too bad you didn't post this a few months ago. I could have brought it to you if you had provided a place for me to watch the eclipse.
