My GRP or Fibreglass boot liner is covered in a black felt like material and about 1/16th of an inch deep if not compressed.

I don't know how they applied this stuff back in 1972, it looks like a single piece of material, but must have been fitted in a special way.

I have thought of having it "Flocked", and then again I could have a go myself, getting a similar material isn't a problem.

Am hoping for info from those who have been there before me and already done the job, best Peter

Peter, most of us are terrible at some things and great at others. For instance I can R & R a ZF or an engine but I cannot do upholstery work. For both my trunks, I farmed out such work to a local street rod upholstery shop and they did an excellent job, for a decent price and had the material on their shelves. Unless you have been holding back on us, I suggest you will be time & money ahead to do the same.
I think it looks seamless simply because the felt material is easy to hide an edge with.

Strip it off with the edge of a putty knife and use the old pieces as a pattern. A spray on glue like 3M should do the job.
