I have been scratching around looking for a matching black interior vinyl for restoration and repair on 6997.While the cigar lighter missed socket burn rings add that 70s devil may care character, I think I am over them.
After looking at many many vinyl's I can tell you all black vinyl is not created equal. I thought a match was going to be impossible.
On the off chance I finally brought some vinyl from Decorative Fabrics Direct -775 Atlanta South Pkwy, Ste 200 College Park, Georgia 30349
404-351-8480 (local) / 888-633-2658 (toll free).
First picture is the original vinyl from the center console area. Second is the new material.
The pattern impressed in the vinyl is exactly the same as the original - like its from the original machine profile roll as per 1970. The new material looks very slightly more matt than the aged interior vinyl in 6997 , but it could be 50 annual coats of protectant on the old stuff. You can see the grain of the substrate material coming through on the old vinyl.
The material designation is Nassimi Rawhide PN502 Black. (Item VPR001 Auto Upholstery vinyl Fabric ).
If you are looking to match the original vinyl or need to do a part repair in the future I don't think you could get any closer - and its only $13/m.
I could not be happier with the match.
If you need some get it while its still there.
