Hello & thank you Datsun community for any & all help with my goal. I'm hoping to tap into all of your collective years & experiences of owning & loving your Datsuns to help me keep my stock interior looking as close to factory as possible.
So, my 1971 510 Wagon is white with the turquoise blue seats, navy blue carpet, white headliner, & originally came with medium blue vinyl top (since sun baked & removed...now rattle-canned with navy blue paint for the time being).
I've found replacement parts for the headliner & a NOS vinyl top to install this summer...hopefully BUT I am having one helluva time finding the rosette patterned vinyl seat material that's stitched in the middle insert of my seats. I've found a reasonably close match for the side bolsters & headrests in a medium metallic blue but I'm afraid if I don't find both materials from the same manufacturer, I'll never get the right match.
Also wondering...how many yards of each type of vinyl do you think I'll need to do the 2 front seats, back bench seat, all 4 door panels & 3 rear cargo panels & 2 wheel wells?
If any of you Ratsuners have any ideas (besides using dyes...for now), PLEASE let me know. I really want to keep the inside looking like it did originally.
Thank you all in advance.
Be good to your Datsuns...& each other : )
