I've been searching for a material that has the same, fine texture visible in the close up photos of the inside of the trunk lids? Jim, from the photo you posted the material appears to be a diamond weave pattern however what's the close-up texture like on the tape/material you located?

Try Plymouth 3 BI*SEAL20
1" x 0.020" x 30'
Cat Number 8052

I will take a photo of both sides one smooth shiny and the opposite slight grain (Not large Diamonds like the roll of 3/4" wide I had previously shown, really tiny diamonds probably formed at mfr'g)

I could ship you some?  the additional problem is the limited commercial readily available widths of 3/4, 1 & 2 inch wider on special orders.

Jim, I assume this is the material you're referring to. Would appreciate a close up photo of the side with the slight grain.

Couple close ups; the grain is still very very small diamonds. I still think it does not match the pebble grain you might be looking for.

Lloyd,

I have been looking through the saved parts I removed during my restoration for the tape that came off the trunk, no luck yet but I still have one box over the garage to look through. I'll let you know if I find it.

Good luck with the hunt Mike, would be good to get hands on an original.

Lloyd,
I went through the last box of old parts and didn't find the trunk tape, must be it didn't come off very well or I just didn't save it.

Thanks for having a good look for it Mike.
