Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Crashhead, Jun 11, 2013.

  1. Anyone know who sells diamond pleated vinyl, that heat pressed stuff for boats and such u know..Can not find anyone who carries it.
     
  2. Heat pressed? We always sew it to a foam backing.

    Something like this? This is sewn, I don't remember seeing this done by embossing.

    Some California flat bottom and jet boats in the 70's came with the vinyl you are talking about, but I haven't seen it in years. Most are done by sewing, like the examples already shown.

    I know eBay auctions are frowned upon but this is what you are looking for.......

    do a search for - Vinyl QUILTED FOAM GLOSSY WHITE Fabric w/ 3/8" FOAM BACKING Upholstery

    Not my auction, just been searching for the same stuff for the wagon interior. Hope it helps.
