Natuolex Vinyl flooring

Post by ChrisCav63 » Wed Nov 22, 2017 7:33 pm

Hi CCABC Friends

I'm restoring a 1964 CC Cavalier that has the original cockpit flooring. (pic attached) I understand Nautolex no longer makes this material and it is out-of-stock with dealers. Does anyone know where some might be hidden?

I will need 4 linear yards, depending on width. I need 2 pieces, 24" width, plus overlap of 4-5 inches and 1 piece 41" width, plus 4-5 inches overlap.

An option: West Marine shows a similar product from Redrum Fabrics, Model # 7026958 . Anyone have any experience with this product?

Any help would be appreciated.

Duane

That will take some real searching...let us know if you are successful...you will be the sole person to find any of late.
Too bad they stopped making that ...

I think Paul Cundiff at Woodies Restoration in Kentucky was making this. If not he should. He has been making a lot of other materials.

Greetings all,

This was on my Connie as well, in both the white and teak colors. Wondering what others might think of EVA decking as reasonable alternative? It comes in similar colors but is a bit more 3 dimensional than the Nautolex and seems reasonably priced. I'm giving it serious consideration and given it's cost might just order a roll for kicks and to experiment with. I've included a link below.

I can imagine that is a "reasonable alternative", you should get a bit to play with, at that price?

I still have half a full roll of the Nautalex White on the wall, maybe 3-4-quarts of Nautalex-99 adhesive.., don't know if I'll ever need that?

The EVA appears to be a much better product! Give it a try?

Thanks All

Paul at Woodies is making the material in 54” widths but at $112.50 a running yard it’s a bit pricey for my needs. Like the EVA idea, would be interested to hear how it turns out. I have all winter to work on flooring

Appreciate all the ideas

Duane
