I think I found the guy - The only upholstery shop in Singapore
that looked like it might work and it looks like it will.
Mouse fur - There are two types apparently. Plain and foam backed. the first 2 photos are front and back of the foam stuff. Front looks great. Foam is crap for a boat. It's like the lowest quality dish sponge - Won't last a month on a boat. (Notice that's what goes in Jaguar's - nothin' but the best - LOL)
Phot 3 is basically mouse fur - cloth headliner
. I didn't get a sense for how thin this is until I fondled it. The best I can describe it is like thick, fuzzy t-shirt material. If applying over bare fiberglass interior
I am pretty sure every bump and contour will be highlighted. Also he only has gray.
Also he was actually working a ragtop on the bench with this stuff. He was doing the traditional wire hangers and stretching it like "old cars.." And yes I have seen it in modern cars but suspect they mount it on nice smooth panels
and the sub-assy panels
are just hung in the car - assembly line and all that. I am not sure what this will look like if applied with contact cement.
BTW - This stuff may not be the mouse fur you all are talking about but this is what he had and I won't be going with it.
liner is pretty thick stretchy vinyl - sorry no photo
, will try to post one after the weekend.
The last 2 photos are vinyl. Thinner than what I have but I think will cover better that the cloth stuff. He says it works around corners pretty easily.
These are the only 2 colors he has - sorry for the crap photo
- and this is what I will go with. I wanted lighter but I will go with the lighter one. It might make me change the interior
cabinetry trim plan from light blue to "light milk coffee" - White cabinets, light tan trim, beigey ceiling.
The width is 1.5 M and SGD$30 a meter. Gary's Upholstery (California previous liink) is selling similar stuff for US$24/yd so I am right in the ballpark.
