Where can I purchase a Crash Pad that is as close to original as possible. Do any come foam backed or do I have to install the foam?

Crashpad
Very limited supply - when these are gone there may well not be any more - not perfect, some creasing mainly around the ears - please email me for more details


Not sure if they still have them available or not....

They are listed by SJ Sportscars and Paul Matty in the UK.

I got one for my S2. I ended up repairing my original because it would have been quite a lot of fettling to get the new one to fit well. I show the new one in this video at 2:38: https://youtu.be/2eZUQ3DOdI0
