You can search but the last thing I read said Al Knoch had the best stuff.  Not sure about this item specifically.

Al Knoch is the only people who still uses the heavy weight Madrid vinyl like the original. My 68 black houndstooth covers came from them & they look great. Al Knoch is now re-doing my original yellow door panels for the 69. I would recommend them to do your door panels also. Nothing fits like the originals. I'll have some before & after picture of my door panels by next week I hope ...Joe

I was looking through some old threads on the matter and I now see that TMI has a concourse series.  It appears to have the seam at the upper trim piece as original.  Curious if anyone knows much about this product?

Thanks for the input. Trying to get this car correct. Have to find some door panel's because mine was junk. But got a good tip were I might get set. Got a set of repos just do not like them. Can't wait to see a set of reskinned looks like! Al Knock is sending me a sample also have a sample from PUI.

Be aware that there are two whites in 68, Pearl and ivory.

Well aware of the two white's trim tag reads 711. When a got this car one owner had dyed the interior a tannish/brown color. When I recovered the seat's only color offered was pearl parchment. Now ivory is offered so it is time to put it back the original color! Just got some used door panels  to reskin. Also just received some white window handle's that are good and snug. Thanks Darrell and Joe for your help.
