Hi,

 

I am looking at relining my Farr 6000 interior and understand the best product is Autex Flex range with no baking.

Could anyone please advise where to buy this lining knowing I am based in MArlborough but I can order online?

 

Also if anyone has a better alternative to Autex Flex and cheaper, I am happy to hear about it?

Thanks,

Damien

I have half a roll I can let you have at a good price. Bought from Reid and Twiname .
Bit thicker than Autex from memory. Great to lay. It's grey with fleck.
I'll post a pic sometime this weekend if you're interested. Busy antifouling.
It is "Carribean"

The Flex 2 from Autex is stretchier and easier to shape into curved surfaces than the R&T stuff.

Probably right as R&T carribean is thicker.
We we're stoked how easy it was to lay on compound curves though, having not done it before, so Autex stuff must be a dream.

Get on the Autex website, they have a list. Or buy it through a local trim/canvas shop who may have an account with them.

Make sure you use a clear base contact glue not the brown stuff like Ados F2, its easy to put too much contact adhesive on the fabric and this can show through in some light conditions. .
