    Vinal interior trim piece eaten by rodent

    I need to replace the left rear wheel arch cover. I bought the whole kit but an unfortunate choice of storage location resulted in a mouse eaten hole on that one piece. Blue with white piping. Anyone have an idea?
    Thanks

    Al,
    I would contact the retailer that you bought it from. If they are stand up types of dealers they should be able to help you in SPECIAL ORDER for the one item.
    The other option is to buy a piece of material ( I know that TRF sells the material by the yard) and have a local person use the old piece as a pattern to make you a new piece.

    I bought some individual pieces from Skinner in the UK. You of course will need to match the color so best to go with original supplier. Mine was done before I bought the car and I don't know who supplied the fabric. I did get lucky and the new one turned out to be a nearly perfect match. You may need to send the supplier a sample.
    Another option would be your local auto upholstery shop. They can match the color or even tint it if necessary but not cheap usually.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I discovered that Moss has it's own upholstery shop and I'm trying to see if they csn replace or repair it. Otherwise I can get the Vinyl (sorry for the earlier misspelling) from them and proceed as you have outlined. I'll post further.
