    Default 505 tweed seat fabric

    Does anyone know of a source for the tweed fabric used in 505 seats? I have looked at DAKAR brand fabric at a trimmer supplies shop - they have a dark brown tweed but not the lighter brown I am looking for. The European suppliers such as Franzose and Neo Retro don't seem to have anything.
    I need it to repair a seat - I guess if I can't find the right colour the only option is to retrim the whole seat in the dark brown, or find a good secondhand seat to cannibalise some fabric from.

    I have the light brown tweed in my 505 STI so I may be able to assist.

    The brown tweed varies with the year, earlier 505s tweed in particular are different,
    However, your best option is get material off another car.

    Some owners have had the back of the passenger and drivers seat removed and replaced with vynol,then used this piece to replace damaged sections. The back of these seats usually are not faded or sun damaged. I also know of the rear armrests being used in a similar manner. The colours vary according to the year as well as Australian assembled or fully imported, 1984 was the introduction of fully imported 505s. Hope this is helpful.
