Alcantara or suede?

Post by Exuptoy »

Looking to do my cabin headliner and pillars in some different material to the 4 way stretch. Anyone have an opinion and source for material?

Have a look at
https://www.harrisonstrimsupplies.co.uk/

They do a Suede Flex unbacked that has a 4 way stretch flexibilty in three colours. Did my headliner and pillar trims with the unbacked stuff.

I have carpet in mine at the moment but been thinking about going down the suede route so that gets my vote 8)

Got the. Stuff in double quick time from Harrison. Easy to apply too. Even more so than the 4 way stretch carpet.

@exuptoy looks great, did you go for the black or the dark grey?

@gary.8 did you paint your grab handles and sunvisors etc? If so what did you use? Looks spot on!

Cheers guys. 4 way stretch was charcoal, Suede was also charcoal and handles and visors standard cream colour. I don’t think it looks too bad.
I did purchase cloud grey paint earlier but decided against it.
I think the fingerprints in the knapp of the material might eventually get to me. I can see me brushing it straight every day! 😂😂
