Scorpion Console Seat - Re-upholstery help

Hello - not been around on here for a while! Coming into the new season, I'm tidying a few aspects of the boat.

After 10 years, the upholstery on the console seat has started splitting. I'm keen to replace with the original vinyl styling for now and may look at a full re-upholstery in the winter ready for next year.

Two key issues I'm finding. Fluted vinyl seems to be hard to get hold of at the moment (key manufacturer sadly closed during covid), so I need to source some 2" fluted marine vinyl. Any suggestions?

I'm also struggling with the correct shade of yellow for this. The samples provided by the company I'm speaking with (Hawke House) are a lighter shade - could anyone assist based on photo's provided? They're happy for me to source the material if their stuff doesn't match.

Grateful for your help as I'm trying to turn this around in the next couple of weeks. Many Thanks

That fluting is plastic welded in a scorpion I believe. Sanders sails did mine and used plain, then added the fluting. I didn’t know you could buy that. I try to shop local. Cj marine, Kayospruce, solentsew.

Charlie Arton Lymington originally did scorpion upholstery on mk1s and mk2s if he is still about but your pay scorpion prices. I googled him once and gave him a call. He might know the colour.
