Plaid interiors


Recommended Posts

My drivers seat is disintegrating at an alarming rate.  I relayed this to a buddy that has an affinity for plaid interiors.  He suggested porcshe plaid fabric as a possible replacement that would be readily available.  Since the VW plaids weren't even close.

Some quick searching and I give you Porsche Karo Madras 5710 as a close approximation for the brown plaid early 80's interior.  It's maybe got a little bit more orange in it than the original but the overall tone seems close to the original.

It's not perfect but if anyone knows of a better approximation please let me know or if you have tried this material and can comment on the results please let me know.


For reference, subaru plaid interiors database.
