    Hardtop rear parcel shelf

    Lining over the parcel shelf got loose in time. In stead of replacing the lining with a similar cloth, I preferred leather. Here is the result.

    That looks beautiful! I wonder if it will do better or worse over the course of time, and sun?

    The folks who did the work did a nice job of matching the stitching too. Nice upgrade!

    Norcal, I don't think leather is as durable as facric but since it is the hardtıp, it won't be exposed to sun as much as the dash. Besides, the leather is well glued and all windows and windscreen are applied with clear ceramic films to prevent direct sunlight and heat.
