Is Confetti headlining still available?

Post by Nick Short » Sun May 12, 2013 7:02 pm

Will soon need a new headlining for my 64 mk1 which had a confetti headlining but can't seem to find a supplier, can any one tell me if any one still makes it. Ta

Aldrige don't seem to list it anymore but thats where I got mine. Maybe give them a call to see if they still stock it?

If they've got some it might be worth considering getting your C post trims and sunvisors done to match

Thanks for your replies but phoned Aldridge today and they no longer have the confetti pattern in stock and have no plans to make it again so it looks like I will have to go with the later pattern which will be a shame.If anyone has any other ideas or avenues to try please let me know.
Thanks Nick

Hi Nick,
Try Terry at the Lotus Cortina Spares Centre in Crewekerne.
Here's a link to his web site;

http://yertiz.com/lotuscortinaspares/index.htm

I'd be suprised if he doesn't have it in stock. Failing that, you could try East Kent Trim;

http://www.classiccar-trim.com/

I have a small amount left over from my restoration, but it's nowhere near enough to make a head lining. However, if you can find another ten people, with a little bit left over, you might just sort it!!
Good luck.
Scott
