Probably money well spent if it keeps you from getting covers not to your.... or rather Nobbette's liking!

If it doesn't fit, force it.
If it breaks, it needed replacing anyhow.

I've only checked GAHH so far. Maybe I read it wrong. I'll have more time this week to continue my search.

You might see if you get the $ back when you make a purchase.

And....I did. The $12.00 is the leather by the sq. ft. if you just wanted material.

So the problem I'm having finding the appropriate leather colour is that I bought carpet locally and cut / surged all my interior and trunk carpets myself.....12 years ago.

And I picked TAN as my choice of colour and then I bought dye or "paint" to spray my old seats and had them match the colour to the carpet.....12 years ago.

Neither of these shades of TAN are in the Mercedes colour chip chart for interiors.
What. A. Surprise.

Cindy at GAHH and Vic at Topsonline have been very helpful and have looked at a picture of soft top, carpet and seat samples so that they in turn could send me swatches of material in a colour that might work for new seat covers.

I NEVER thought 12 years ago that this would be my most pressing 1st world problem in the future.

Who knew that I would have kept this car....or any car, for that matter....for so long.
300sl-24 and ChiefRider like this.

If they prove unable to assist, email Aldridge. Since they make to order, I don't see why they couldn't use a leather that matches what you have. Let me know if you need the contact.

I received some material swatches from Topsonline this week.
Nobette approves of one of them.
Just waiting on GAHH to send their swatches.
