Does anyone know what colors cobra grain comes in? I have never seen it in white, but was considering going back to cobra grain when my current elk grain top someday needs to be replaced. But the rest of my car has been repainted white, so I might be stuck?

I have never seen Cobra grain vinyl in anything other than black. Saw one in white at Great Country Motors, but later realized that it had been painted.

My '75 Victoria still has its original cobra vinyl and it is in perfect condition.

How does it compare to other vinyls for ease of cleaning and durability?

Not all S&S had it. Read your printed tag under the hood to see.if you would like a sample you can request one from Miami corp they offer the material.

Mine did, there are still 2 tiny remnants of it at the bottom of the A-pillars. Thanks for the recommendation on the sample- it has always seemed more like rubber than vinyl fabric to me.

Default Material

This is another place and has different styles , they will send you a sample sheet. In the cobra grain you also have a short grain and a long grain style. Or you might like one of the different styles.

Default We used to joke....

We used to joke that when the rest of the cars rusted away into the dirt that the cobra material would be stretched out across the junkyard landscape of every junkyard in America. It was tough stuff.

Very tough stuff! It does hold dirt though. Keep it clean and use vinyl top dressing occasionally and it should out-last most of us.

The S&S owner's manual in our (Ninde F.H., Tulsa) 1975 Victoria said to use black shoe polish.
