Awesome!!!!

Hoping they have a match for the Red vinyl (fingers crossed)..... Fleck trim already available (tick)

Quick question..... how many metres did you order??

I'm going with 5m, do you think that's enough? Want to have a bit spare for down the track

No hurry at the moment, I've talked to a few guys and know it will be a while 2-4 months. Did you wait long?

I ordered 5 yards... and that is heaps I should have enough trim for 2 full cars with some spare.
I had to wait 6 months
Doug should have the red trim already, it sounds like he is getting more orders from Australia now.

Ok, 5 yds is 4.5m so enough to last a while if stored right.

Yeah hopefully more orders from Australia means more availablitiy for owners down the track for all the various colour & trim combos.

Wow 6 months, i better get mine in soon....I'm away o/s in October for a while. Thanks for the info.

Regarding the trim material SMS are now doing Australian cars because they had so many requests
I posted the below in another post but probably should go here as well.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I got mine in 3 weeks but my trimmer ordered it so I guess they supply the trade first.
Remember the headlining is lightweight and the seat bolsters are heavy weight material.
The lightweight white trim for the seats has worn on the drivers side of my EK after 3 years and I think Jeremy has the same problem.

But what's the alternative?

If you mention my trimmers name – “A Stich In Time” or Craig they should have the orders still on their books

Have you seen their Website for Holden Trim?

Thanks Wayne - I have a set of reproduction plastic seat covers to protect the precious vinyl, will see how that goes.

Hopefully the car will be ready for the Spring fair at Lugarno so I can bring it to the NSW club event
