    New member - advice needed on exterior finish and interior trim

    Hello,

    I'd be grateful for a few pieces of advice.

    I see providers producing:


    1. pre polished gelcoat bodies and wondered whether they're good enough to go or if they need finishing off by way of a polish or paint.
    2. interior trim (see attached) which resembling flannel or brushes suede and looks as if it isn't going to last long, where can I find alternatives?

    Well PR I cannot comment on a gel coat body but the dash should be ALCANTARA - Italian suede if you will and it is very hard wearing...

    Thanks for the swift reply, I am looking to go the rally dash route which prompted thought of alternatives. Perhaps I'll get a ticket to the Silverstone Classic thing tomorrow and look for the odd member to chat to.

    Hi Paul,

    The seats are LB's own, covered in Alcantara.
