Hi Paul,

This question was already raised here:

http://www.alfabb.com/bb/forums/1900-2000-2600-1950-1968/324713-2600-spider-rhd-2-colours-interior.html

No conclusion was reached. This post and the one embedded in it contains interesting information about the details of re-trimming seats.

I imagine black leather or black vinyl were the likely choices for Graphite Grey.

Do post a pic when it's done. My RHD car AR 852078 was also Graphite Grey but it's red now. I thought about changing back to grey but haven't got round to it as yet as am still dealing with mechanical items.

Happy Christmas!

Most 2600 Spiders especially the exports had black interior.
