    Jacker,

    Not quite sure of your definitions but...

    The standard 73' sport seat configuration is:
    Fine grain leather or leatherette on the outside bolsters and perforated leather/ette or hounds tooth material or corduroy for the seat bottom and back. The door panels should be fine grain leatherette in black, brown, or tan with black arm rests.

    Basket-weave was for pre 72'-73'

    Hope this helps...

    That's one on me Nick…

    Could you show me a pic of a stock 'F' series 73' 911 with basket-weave door panels please…

    Thanks,

    Actually...ANY excuse to post a pic...if it works...of a '72 door panel. I dunno about which vinyl was used...the light colored stuff here is "beige leather"...

    was I "just bragging" with the above post? Only partially...but also this is a test. Trying to figure out why I can post some pics but not all..

    I'm with Chuck on this one. '72 and '73 door panels are leather grain and not basketweave (unfortunately).

    73's = fine grain leather or leatherette. Never seen basketweave on a '73.

    My 71 has basketweave door panels, the bolsters on the seats are perforated leatherette/vinyl(???) and basketweave inserts...
