    Back in the 70's even we had van conversion shops in Ohio and they sold this by the yard. Anyone see this stuff or close to it in any custom shops? I've looked online for hours but came up with nothing.

    When you have upholstery questions,consult the site expert,Fred Carello. He knows his trade well and has done just about anything imaginable.
