    Hi

    I am restoring my 246 GTS and I have now reached the interior section of the restoration...

    I am struggling to get the upholstery of the targa roof correct regarding the material, ie if in a) leather or b) combination of the black vinyl and leather, or c) all in vinyl.

    Does anybody have any pictures on the targa roof that still has the original upholstery in place?

    Thanks a lot in advance

    The targa roof panels only came with the heat stitched vinyl inserts.

    Thanks a lot.

    What do you mean with the heat stitched vinyl? Do you mean that it does not have any normal stitching (with thread) but only an imprint looking like a stitching?

    where can i find/buy this? (Mine had a stitched material but was renovated in the 80‘s).

    Hi Isuk
    Unfortunately, dinoparts has lost their supplier for the vinyl roof insert and there is currently no expected time when it can be delivered.
    Do you have / does anybody have any other suggestions where I find it?
    Thanks in advance
    Mikael

    Matt at Reoriginals in the US sourced a set for me from his supplier in Italy. That was around 7 years ago now but it’s probably worth contacting him.
