Thread: Correct perforated vinyl for SWB, new source

  1. #1

    Correct perforated vinyl for SWB, new source

    I have been working with a shop which specializes in perforating vinyl and leather to get the correct style perforation done for early SWB cars and late 356's.

    The required investment for the dies is quite substantial so before they pull the trigger they would like to get an idea if there is an interest out there. I have no financial interest in this just trying to do my car in the correct way and help others out there. If this is something you are interested in please send me a PM so that I can give them an overview of the demand.

    Surprised to report back that so far there appears to be very little interest in having the correct perforation available.

    Apologies if I missed something, but what vinyl? Seats or headliner?

    Joris is talking about the seats pattern (see his picture) but now that you bring headliner up, that is also something I am interested in. Correct SWB headliner. Joris?

    I would be in if it was proper for early sport seat bolsters. The photo shows a textured vinyl perforated seatback. I'm looking for a smoother vinyl perforated for bolsters.

    But sport seat bolsters have a different perforation that's available (at least in germany it is)

    If I'm not mistaken, the later 356's (e.g., C cars) had seatbacks (rear side only) that were perforated. Where are the high quality upholstery shops getting this material (e.g., Autos International, Autobahn, K & H) today, and is this different from what 718RSK is pursuing?
