Would anyone have access or know the whereabouts of the yellow/apricot vinyl
used for the aqua/green amphi? (mftr #-description) I am about to have my
car's interior reupholstered and have not been able to locate a complete
interior from Hugh Gordon. I would like to keep my almost perfect car in its
original state, but have been unsuccesful in finding the correct vinyl
combination from my local upholsterer.

Also, I would appreciate any suggestions in trying to insulate the interior
from engine heat and noise...at the same time of reupholstering.

thanks....

Barring advice on a tried and true supplier of such vinyl fabric from other
owners with actual firsthand experience (I have none, being more than happy
to plant my lazy big ass in my mildewey original seats), you might find the
folks at Great Lakes Fabrics can fix you up with a close match. They have a
website at http://www.glfi.com/, or you can contact them at 1904 S. Wenona
St. Bay City, MI 48706; Toll Free: 1-800-652-2358. Assuming you can still
razor out a smallish strip of fabric from the back of your rear passenger
seat back where it's gathered, this might provide a nice non-sunfaded swatch
for color matching.

You'll find several items in the List's Searchable Archives at
http://www.escribe.com/automotive/amphicar/search.html that discuss various
methods and materials used for "insulation". There's also David Chapman's
very elegant, if unoriginal, solution that ameliorates both the heat and
noise issues also while affording more onboard stowage space...something
admittedly scarce in an Amphi: He built cabinets under the rear passenger
seat. You can see photos of David's super-elegant setup at
http://www.amphicars.com/actbelts.htm.
