Front dash trim piece leather

My 1988 TRs Front dash trim piece leather is shrunken and the fwd 1" section on the plastic under frame in front of the vents is sun damaged, brittle and broken. I have found a brand new front trim piece but it is dark brown and my interior is black. Can the dark brown leather be dyed black?

JR- Affirmative. Black is the easiest color change to make for leather and Leatherique makes excellent dye kits. Would guess your leather color is Nero 8500.

Found the new OEM Ferrari windshield trim piece part #61512100 thru Ferrari Parts. Was the complete trim piece - plastic frame, vents & leather in excellent condition.

Hi there,

If I were you, I would also check Eurospares. They might have the used piece you are looking for. www.eurospares.co.uk/

Buy the leather at GAHH and make your own. It is super simple.

Brian- You know all the suppliers. Where would be a good place to pick up some Charcoal (very dark gray, 4304) leather? GAHH did not offer it.

First I would call GAHH and ask. It just may not be on the website because there have been no requests.
Then try Matt at Reoriginals. He is more of a vintage guy but he has good sources for leather and it will certainly be better than buying finished pieces.
