Dash material

Are we doomed to fade?
or do we fake it?

Contact HVL Interiors, supposedly the guy makes the mousehair material. I found this information while reading about a Dino 246 restoration.

The Original material is flocked Dino vinyl,
Henk's HVL is nothing like this, it only mimics the flocking and is pre-faded. It is a stretchy woven material that installers like because of that flexibility.
The flocked Dino vinyl that McCann sells is the closest to the original possible but is much more difficult to install.

My Dino's dash was re-covered (before I bought it, but I have the invoice) with, I believe, original "mousehair" in 2014.

FYI, the material was obtained through my local Ferrari agent and they sent the dash away to a specialist to be recovered. It required 2 metres of mousehair material. Cost was 450 for the material, 425 for re-covering and 260 for removal and re-fitting (all plus VAT).

Best wishes, John

Your dealer probably got it from "Rorky" O'Rourke but that's only a guess 'cause he is so great!
