Hi Wyn.
From my understanding the Factory was focused on producing sedans during the early stage of production consequently a cabriolet with a low Serial Number would have been a real anomaly.
Both of your cars are "later " in the production run and both have the fine line trunk lining pattern which is consistent with what we know.

I reviewed my notes and emails from Rick Hulett. One email had 2 pics of the 2 different trunk materials used. The statement that Rick made relative to the materials was that the first material was used on 1936/1937 production cars. It was a jute backed burlap where the jute was needled to the burlap, which was ironed and printed with black lines. This time period would include all 810's and most of the 812's.
The second material was used on the late 1937 cars and was probably necessary because they ran out of the first batch and had to do a small batch print. This material would have been on the late 812's.
The pic's of the samples are small and are not relative to a scale to allow counting lines per inch although it is not obvious that there is a variation in number of lines per inch.
810 2489F is relatively close to the end of 810 production, but was before any true 812 production, falling into the middle of what Rick described as 36/37 production. 812 310112 is relatively close to the end of 812 production, and could be considered a late 37 in Rick's terminology. They both have the same line spacing.
Question: In person, up close, do the materials appear to be from the same source, as well as having the same no. of lines per inch?

Answer: Yes, I would say they are from the same source. There is a very slight difference in the line spacing, but the jute backing, total thickness and the weave of burlap seem to be nearly identical in both samples.

Is this a fairly tightly woven burlap? Trying to figure out if I could successfully draw lines , (ala Terry Cockerell ) on burlap or paint tightly woven a burlap color like Terry did and draw the lines. One major plus to painting the fabric is it will seal the fabric and give it more body.
