Elephant Hide Grey Vinyl.... Elephant Hide grey seating was introduced into mainstream Land Rover production in 1954, and used to great effect in the Series II and IIA interiors.
At the time there were on average 1700 Land Rovers rolling off the production line a week. Taking in to account model variations and seating types, the result was over 1000 seats a day going through the exceptionally busy trim shop. We now have a material that’s a superb reproduction and gives all of the features that are so important if restoring these historic vehicles. We don’t, however, need the cotton backing used on the original materials – quality modern vinyls can give the same effect and long life as this classic material has done for over 40 years.
Exmoor Trim now produce a range of Series II and IIA seating that is simply as good as it gets. The front seat cushions and squabs, although now using modern high quality foam, have superb feel and ride, with the metal back plates beautifully reproduced as original and not with a substandard wooden frame – an important safety factor.
Metal-backed squabs were only ever used and were available with two types of fixing with either bolt or pin type available.
The seat backs are supplied with new pivot bolts, nylon washers and locking bolts, if you require leather retaining straps then these are available separately
