    Hello to all, as some of you know I've been working on reproducing the trunk/boot material for the 3500 GT. It's has taken some time to get it done. The first article prototype is pictured, NOT the finished product.

    ***NOTE: The photo is a scan and actually makes the material look "darker" and "grainier" than the actual item. ****

    Right now, we are making new dies that will not have raised grain in the "square" sections. The final product will be "shiny" and have a gloss finish as the original. Also, the final product will be "cushioned, or pillowed", as the original.

    I just wanted to give you all an update! I should have it completed by mid June, if all goes as planned.

    Send me a PM or note if you are interested.

    Ciao and best!

    ~Trev


    P.S. I am working on reproducing 3500 GT shift nobs as we speak.

    Frank, you are first on the list.

    The material looks better in person.

    When we have the material finalized it will look perfect.

    Hello to all, and thank you to everyone for your interest and patience in the 3500 GT/GTI trunk Material. It has taken longer than expected to manufacture but it is here.

    I have the first run completed and enough for about 5 cars.

    I am currently refining and making new dies to get the material to have the correct "shine" as the first run didn't come out as I had hoped, but it's the closest to the original you will find.

    The second run won't be available for about 3 to 4 months, as it's a long process for perfection. I hope to finish the new die as soon as I am able and then I'll have more available.

    For those who would like the first run material send me a private message and I'll get back to you.

    Ciao and best,

    Trev

    Hi Trev,

    I am new to FerrariChat. I came across this forum while searching for trunk liner material for my '63 3500 and saw your posting. Have you had success with the second run?

    Thanks

    Hello Trev,

    I'm extremely interested in buying a length of your trunk fabric for my 3500 101/1128 which i'm delicately repairing/restoring (you can find an article about my approach in February's Octane magazine).

    Can you please supply a quote? I'm probably going to need a complete refit though I intend to use certain sections of the existing lining for as long as possible.

    Best wishes,

    Kevin McCloud

    And congratulations for persevering with this. You do us all a great service.
