I don't have any, but I'm curious. For which car and what kind of material is it?

I've been looking for a "correct" dark silver or light-to-medium gray simi-gloss finish smooth vinyl to make a replacement for my 365 GT 2+2 hood pad. Unfortunately the Daytona pads were quilted in a diamond pattern and are available as reproductions. The 365 GT 2+2 was quilted in a rectangular pattern and my efforts to contact the manufacturer of the repro Daytona pads through the retailers (Re-originals and apparently others) have been unsuccessful. They are very protective of their sources - to the extent of alienating their existing customers.

I wish I could help you.

I got a new repro rectangular-pattern pac from Shaughnessy about 3 years ago - don't know if he has anymore . . .
