A less expensive alternative

I believe this stuff goes by a different name in the marine world "puff chord" and is available in the 1/8 thickness. Google found it for me.

Here's one vendor, at about half the price of the ebay link.

Bayliner -- Brunswick: Bayliner 2036793 Fathom Silver 5/8 Inch Precut Marine Grade Boat Puff Chord Welting (20 Yard Section)

Different colors were available but you can find other vendors besides this one with google, puff chord and the color.

Thank you!!!

This is the info I was looking for.

Not that it's that expensive in the first place but still why pay more when you don't have to.

ScottCT, when I try to do this, the gap's kind of big, and it doesn't seem to stay in all the way. Did you have this problem? Does it just expand eventually, or do you have to keep pushing it back in all the time?

(not an apple, but similar: )

Anyways...piping away from you in the crevice under the console, the lip pointing at you...then slide it up under, towards you.

If you can get it in around the lighter, the rest is a breeze..just go slow. Again, start slightly to one side of the lighter and then go towards it.

That probably didn't help. ahhaa. hard to describe.
It helped ill try this with my left over blue before the gray comes in. If anyone wants what I started with the blue just cover shipping!

I actually had issues keeping mine in. But some spots around the head liner in the back the piping would go in too far. Around the bends of this area I would trim the edges to have it bend better like this:

I'm back from my 9 day cruise and starting to add the Gray/silver (you pick) into the interior.







It was too cold the other day, so the welt was having an issue going into the areas that it fits.

I added the red piping to my door panels to break up the charcoal a bit and match up the seats. Very happy with the results. I had to trim back some of the lip as it just wouldn't press-in in a couple areas. I used a wooden wallpaper seam roller (wife's idea) to finish pressing it in and get any waves out. Not sure if I'll add any more, as it's a nice accent. Yet another reason I love this site!!!
