Recaro shark grey seat material

Hi looking for help in locating some new material for my Recaro half leather seats, the black/grey material pattern or maybe some donor seats.

Many thanks in advance

Your request and the title appear to be 2 rather different things. To ensure the right responses it may be best if you clarify

Are you looking for the striped cloth for the inserts for a 'half leather interior' i.e from a 2.8 Injection Special (nominally 1984 onwards) or

One of the 2 types of cloth used for the surround or inserts in the 'shark grey interior' i.e from an earlier 2.8 Injection (nominally 1981 to 1983) ?

For reference, the Special cloth seat fabric is called "Strobe" in the brochure.

No problem at all.
I found this after a search on Google:

There may be other similar websites too. Now you know the name of the fabric it might be worth spending a bit of time looking on the internet.
:goodluck:

Hi there. I’m just wondering how you got on with the fabric. If you got it I’m looking for the same. Thanks
