    Hi Jerry,

    That's my auction! Funny story behind that material. I have a friend in the rag trade and gave him a sample and he took it on a challenge to get it as close as possible. Well, he did a pretty good job, the only difference is the black stripe is fractionally too narrow. I have had a lot of mail about the material, the most common being what colour interior it matches. The car in the pics is a red/black 1985 308 GTS Qv #45011, UK spec. I have seen three interior trim colours on 308's and 328's. The first one is the white/black (Or more correctly light grey dark grey that you see in my auction), tan/black and dark red/black. The problem is, these cars are getting on a bit so it's difficult to find clean original ones now as a reference. Oddly, in Australia at least, the dark red/black colour is very common on the two valve injection cars, but I have yet to see it on a Qv, but it's also common on 328's.

    Here is a pic of the car before I pulled it apart!

    Regards,

    Carl.

    The fabric on mine is tan but I'm replacing it with black leather, the same with the fabric on the targa.It just gets too dirty, I've seen it done and it looks great.
