I'd go with the darker one. Just personal preference.

Mike,
Thanks for your answer.

How about originality ?
Does somebody know if it was dark or light gray ?

My C coupe had the lighter band that appeared very original.

Ned,
Thanks for your answer.
This car had a very small part left about 1/2 inch, it disintegrated when I touched it, it was very light in color. I thought this part lost its color, that is why I am asking.
I have seen some reproduction glove box door liners , but I think those are not correct some have white or black elastic bands. I know it must be gray.

Seems light grey, except where slightly aged with time. 62-3/BT6. The grey section on the right piece was hidden under the cover and showed when I re-tensioned that strap.

Mervyn,
Thanks for posting that photo, it helped a lot.
I will go with the light grey, the piece I will use is a little bit darker than in my photo.

I have been asked where did I source the grey elastic band.
I could not find grey elastic band, instead I dyed two white elastic bands with powder dye. You dilute that powder in warm water and then soak the elastic band. I think that I got two different shades of grey because the material of the bands I dyed is different, one has more cotton and the other has more synthetic material. You can buy this dye through Amazon or several other stores, just google fabric dye grey.

Not to horn in here, but I need the glove box door liner complete for my 58 Cabrio.
Anyone sell these?

I just went to a fabric store and they had both the natural color and the grey.

John did you look at Stoddard or SMC ? I think I have seen those in their online catalogs.
I only needed the elastic band.

I did check with Stoddard, no luck, but understand that Ed at Klasse356 has the items.
Will contact Monday.

John,
SMC has these. I got one for my 58 cab, but I don't have a photo.
