I took some pics of the "Roma" cloth I got from Nico in Italy, here they are!

Dark side, as originally used on the WR-8:

Light side used on some other models

Sent me a neat Calendar, too!

Matches the original cloth, perfectly!

I added Nicolo's site to the sticky at the top of the forum that lists grille cloth suppliers. Looks like nice stuff.

In one of his replys, Nico mentioned that he sourced some of his cloth patterns from grillecloth.com before they discontinued the production runs. Might still be a good source for some of them while he still has stock.

I ordered some from Nico in Italy. Pricey but a match. His email is posted in an earlier entry.

I would ask for a sample of the cloth if possible first. Bought some from a US supplier that was total rubbish. Might be OK for covering a sofa but for a radio it would suffocate it and flap on the base.

Could hardly see daylight through it.

Ben has good cloth as well. Some of the more expensive he has woven locally.
