Tim, I enlarged the picture of the view of the space between the two rear seats, and to me this looks like striped carpet. The lines appear to be on top of the material and not grooved. Look at the front floor mat and you can see the grooves, so I am sure that the camera used had the ability to show the grooves in the back if they were there.
Who is making the battleship linoleum in large enough sheets for the suburban? I had a guy that was interested in making it by hand a few years ago, but I had no takers at the time. I didn't want to put a lot of money up front without any demand.
sells it in black too. But he does not provide a picture of the product nor the available sizes. I think this was the guy that I contacted several years ago and he sold them in smaller pieces than we needed for the suburban. I also think his product is smooth and not ribbed.
Tim do you agree that we need to develop an archive that is useful on the Stovebolt? I like what Rob did on oldgmctrucks.com by having "The Hall of Fame" section.
I have removed thousands of old posts over the years that were no longer valid or had expired links. I did that because every time I tried to use the search feature I just got lot's of garbage including expired swapmeet ads.
