Title: need vendor for light green vinyl top
Post by: Uncle Lar on August 16, 2011, 11:48:40 PM
I need to find a vendor who has a light green vinyl top, or sells the vinyl, for a 1978 cadillac.  Owner wants it as close to original as possible.  Its one of those colors that probably wasn't real popular back them, and is harder to find now.  I've tried Kee auto top, but they don't have anything close enough.  Any suggestions?  Thanks!

Something along these lines?

The green for that year came in 2 shades, seamist being the lightest, and basil being the darker of the two.

Hope that helps a bit, I have not personally used that distributor, but don't have that shade of green in any of my vendor sample books. Good luck.

As a matter of fact, going through some of my samples from Scott Foam and Fabrics out of Memphis, Tennessee I found a green vinyl as you described. If you want I will give you the product number.

Vendor: Scott Fabrics. www.scottfabrics.com (800) 238-7466, 2790 Broad Ave. Memphis, TN. 38112

PATTERN: Soft Style
Color: SS-10 SAGE

That should be close to what your looking for, great pricing also.  They are a wholesale only vendor though if I am not mistaken. If you do not wish to set up an account, I can help you get what you need.
