My question is, why won't these people share where they find this material?

I found this on Amazon when I was looking at options for recovering my dash pad to cover the cracks.

Hay Catlover, I did state I would list where the material came from. I plan on making sure the supplier is OK with me listing them on the board and they haven't gotten back to me yet. Additionally, you being a child and flaming me doesn't motivate me to get that done, it just irritates me.

OK For anyone interested in using this material for their Eliminator dash, (even catlover) here is the contact information for my source:


Cameraleather is the company. The point of contact is Morgan and his email address is: info@cameraleather.com


email him and he will help you out. The one disclaimer he had was that the material is not made for car interiors so he can't guarantee it will hold up to extreme conditions very well.

Good luck and I hope this helps anyone in need like I was. Also, if you find a better product i'd be happy to hear about it. I will eventually post pictures of the completed project. It might be a while.

Thanks Rick! I have been meaning to ask them for some samples to use for comparison. Glad you already have it sorted out :-)
Can you tell us which of their leather types was the best match?

Thanks again for taking this on!

No worries Rick! I saw that they had a small variety of black camera case materials on their website, so I was curious which one you ended up using.

Thanks again for the info, I'm sure Eliminator owners everywhere will appreciate the info!

Hi Guys,

Rick sent me a small sample of the camera case material that he was sent and used for his panels. I took a quick comparison picture (below).
It's a pretty close match ~ the original appears to have more of a "flat" surface, while the repro material seems more "pebble-y". I think you would need to have seen originals before or have an original on hand to really tell the difference.

They sell different textures. That looks like the generic pebbled vinyl whereas the levant black might be a closer match.
