Hi. Looking where to buy the original cloth to repair some cigarette (?) burned spots on a 1988 XLT Ranger. I am going (or trying to) totally factory original and doesn't like the new upholstery kits (even price kill me at $400 plus freight). My plan is disassemble the seats, clean, repair and paint frame and springs , wash the original upholstery and re install it. Color is kind of tan, cannot find yet the original color name or even denomination of that type of cloth). Somebody there outside who can help me with information about this? Thanks in advance!

I have no idea on how to help you with my limited knowledge. I thought someone posted up a bunch of the original dealer pamphlets that may give up a color name... but I can't seem to find them now.

@ZMan may be able to shed some light on this for you...

Thanks guys, I already contact Mr Byrd today and he ask me for pictures of the cloth to check on his catalogs if there still be available the original factory cloth type and color. Will keep you posted. Tomorrow I am planing to replace windows seals on both doors, that I hope will help to keep mental health on this hard crazy times. Be safe!!!
