Need some help

Postby Pincherrn » Sun Jan 18, 2015 8:33 pm

Hi Guys,

Not sure if this is the right place as it could be in Parts Wanted, MX Chat or here. I'm having to have rethink on my Exocet interior for the IVA and need to cover the centre tunnel to save me some IVA grief. I want something neutral and in keeping with the stripped out look. Plain black car carpet is obviously the easiest route and probably the most sensible but my original thought was of something like black neoprene (remembering the car is very open) or some kind of diamond quilted vinyl. Only the carpet is readily available and I haven't found any neoprene or foambacked vinyl. The covering will be secured using velcro strips to the centre tunnel. I need to cover some panel joins that the IVA Mans balls may not like. :eek:
So any suggestions of where I can get any of the above or any other suggestions are welcome. I had originally planned to just cover it in CF vinyl but there are now panel joins that are may be deemed a hazard.

Cheers in advance.

Hi guys. Will post some photos later but found a thread on Nutz that had pictures of a quilted Nakamae tunnel cover that looked similar to what I had in mind.

Hi,

Well I found some fotos of the type of thing.

I have found some diamond quilted vinyl on Ebay that might do the trick. Then speak very nicely to my sister to get it edged.

This should do the job. Is only to cover the open edges on the centre tunnel to save grief on the IVA. Would have really liked neoprene but can't find any of that.

Cheers
