Cabriolet beige hood cover

#1 Post by Dorchester » Sun Apr 12, 2020 4:00 pm

I'm looking for a beige outdoor hood cover.
I've got a dark grey one which unfortunately doesn't match the rest (mohair hood, seats, door cards etc...).
Paint code: SMJ, lightstone beige.

I can't see any available in France at the moment.
It's like the beige armrest. I've already got a decent lid still to be fully cleaned & re-dyed, but I still need the lightstone 'box'. Not that common...
I'm very interested in yours.
Pm soon.
