Late model 'hotrods' with tweed interiors?

I was wondering if anyone has some pics of newer cars (lets say 85 and up) with tweed interiors.....i'm having a hard time picturing what a somewhat newer car would look like with a tweed interior.....specificly third generation camaros......
I've seen some awsome OLDER hotrods with kickass tweed interiors, but i've yet to see any new(er) cars with them. Thanks

You want my opinion, tweed is very dated. Go for a suede and faux leather interior. Tweed is too old man.

Yeah i sorta agree, but tweed has one quality that so far nothing else i've looked for has......cheap price! lol
Yeah, i'd love to go for white and blue leather, but that would be a wee bit expensive.....
I dunno bout vinyl.....i'd have to see some pics to decide......
I know its not much cheaper than leather, but what about ultrasuede?
I dont know how it would look.....i'd probably wanna do the whole dash and console, as well as the doors and speaker boxes in the same material.....

UltraSuede is the most expensive faux suede you can buy. We use some suedes that are only $2 more per yard than tweed.

I made my own door panels of fiberglass and covered them in Marine Grade Vinyl. It is uv resistant and will not mold or mildew which isnt a problem in a truck obviously but i really like the way it looks and even feels. Now if i could just get the smell of leather....

p.s. I bought it off ebay. This stuff was CHEAP like around 50 for about 7 yards i think. which is like the price of two yards of tweed from rodoors good luck

You can buy leather smell in the bottle at most places that sell polishes and wax and cleaners.

I am trying to lose the tweed in my little panel truck. Everything is shaped nice and glued over foam. I want to glue vinyl over that but don't know if it will stick or not show the tweed under it. It sure would alot less work if I don't have to start over from scratch.

More than likely it wont give you good results. Tweed doesnt have a smooth texture, and to get a good bond to hold the vinyl in the designs, it would show the texture of the tweed. The tweed will soak up the glue too, you will have to use a ton of glue. It would save time, try a small panel and see if it works. To do it right though, you will probably have to redo the panels

Thanks for the info. I was looking on ebay for some vinyl and found some what is decribed as #100 naughahyde leather look alike and water resistent. Does the #100 mean anything and if it does, will this work good for auto interiors? Thanks.

I redid the interior of my Ranger with Ulrasuede and used eBay for my supply house. I do not have the records in front of me but I believe I averaged about $16/yard. I did , however, wind up with some wrong colors. I was going for grey tones and they are tough to reproduce accurately on the computer. But, what the heck, if I don't use these pieces down the road I'll just put them out for bid. Search: ultrasuede, and check often because a lot of the offers are small yardage. PS - I called rod doors and they quoted me $145.00/yd.

That is a nice website. Has anyone used the Illusion vinyl? Sounds good and even on sale.
