I was lucky enough last week to obtain an original pair of blue ribbed rubber door liners. Decent shape for a sixty year old set. I painted them with SEM Color Coat Portola Red (a very close match to Cherry Red). Here's the result.

I have a set that I got a while back from Heritage Trim. The profile on the front is true to the original but the liners are much thicker and stiffer than the originals making them extremely difficult to place into the door. These restored original liners are still soft and most importantly still flexible.

They look great, Ray. I have a set I bought from Austin Healey spares, but they are not quite as nice as what you are showing. Have you figured out how you are going to glue them in?
