I have no Idea when the change may have taken place. The original cars that I have worked on were all 810's and the trunk carpet were all the same color as the interior carpet. I don't recall seeing any documentation of a change in the rug material in the trunks of these cars.

Jim,
In my email correspondence with Rick Hulett on Feb. 10, 2019 he indicated that the general rule was that the trunk carpet color was always a taupe/brown( to my eyes beige) color. The exception to that rule was on the Cabriolet's where the trunk carpet was always the same as the interior carpet. Other exceptions were on the Custom Berline where the interior and trunk carpet were the same color. He confirmed those statements in a Feb. 11 email.

Those emails are in the batch of info that I forwarded to you last year.

I have been trying for a couple months to make the lined burlap trying various methods. I finally had success using a large format printer and printing the lines on burlap. I ended up using 9 cycles per inch, with about a "duty cycle" of about 40% for the black.

Did Rick Hulett say anything about exceptions for Custom Beverlys or was it only for Custom Berlines and Cabriolets?

I did this on a Canon Pro-4000S which will print up to 44" wide. I bought a length of 36" wide burlap (17 oz "sagless") and ran it through. There are some spots where the printing was not perfect probably due to irregularities in the burlap, but most of it turned out very nice.
