Interior trim vinyl
« on: October 05, 2021, 17:19:30 »
Is there a good source for the correctly matching blue vinyl?

I am having all of the dash parts retrimmed but don't want to do the doors so need something to match as much as possible.

Forty five years ago, not long after buying my 230SL, I needed to replace the seats as the leather was shredded.
Mercedes was the only source, leather was out of the question at the time (family, mortgage etc. took precedence) I bought fitted panels from them, Naugahyde I think they called it.
Best buy ever, still looks 100%.
Try Mercedes direct??

What you are looking for is MB-Tex vinyl.  The blue matches the original blue nearly perfectly.  I am sure you can find it online. 

Here is a trick I figured out to make the vinyl more supple in order to wrap the dash.

Attached is a picture of my door cards recovered by Aldridge Trimming Wolverhampton. Vinyl navy blue code JGNBL which matches the seats. I bought vinyl from them this week to cover my dashboard parts myself.( They  quoted £700 vat to do it) ask for a sample
