Well they are vinyl, so no elephants were killed. But we finally found a vinyl that can be used to replace these.

Looks very nice. With that said, how many dinosaurs were killed to make the oil which was refined into the vinyl? Hahaha!

And science would disagree with Rockefeller.

Oil is made from algae and plankton deposits from the Carboniferous and Permian, long before there were any dinosaurs.
There's also no fossilization involved in the process.

The (false) notion of "fossil" fuel and dinosaurs comes from the massive 1930's ad campaign of Sinclair Oil with their dinosaur mascot.

Also worth mentioning that finding a dinosaur to kill these days is pretty tough.

They milk the dinosaurs to make vinyl. So, the dinosaurs are not killed. Not sure how they feel about the whole thing. The panels look great. What carpet and seats go with elephant?

Who knew SirAndy was also a geologist? I just thought he was an expert in the identification and public shaming of scammers and poorly behaved forum members.... Those of us of a certain era will also remember the School House Rock cartoon that played primarily during the Sunday cartoons that helped to propagate the myth that oil came from dinosaurs. At a certain point I remember reading a poll of people from that era that showed that more than 40% of us thought oil came from dinosaurs.

And to get back on topic...Many thanks to Mark and everybody at 914Rubber for yet another product option!

The early, brick mold (looks like bricks stacked), The carpet is an industrial perlon. I'm working out a solution that is robust enough to hold up like the OEM


Coming soon.

you are both wrong. The material comes from the Endangered Nauga. The end product is naugahyde. Mark must have located a very rare beast indeed. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/burro.gif)

Looks like the thicker material used in 70. The 71 used “shiny leather” a thinner, smother looking material with a more reflective shine.

We matched it off of the 71 - 701 sample

Interesting,
I think I may have some of that vinyl. I thought it was something a P/O did.It was so far off what looks like it should belong.

Nothing like the Porsche sample book. Go figure.
