Have you tried calling Formula? Im not sure if it is correct but another boater with an older Formula told me that they still have the patterns to some of the older boats and can make the pieces that you are looking for.

We redid a whole 311 cockpit interior last winter. It started out just fixing the rotten bolsters but he like the work so well he decided to redo everything. We replaced the plywood with prolite plastic material that will never rot.

Contact American Auto Glass in Albany, NY - 518-438-3561 - Scott Abbot. They do boat interiors and are run by a boating family - they used to own an early 90's 311 formula w/ supercharged 502's - now own a 388 slingshot........They should know exactly what you are looking for. Good people to work with.

If you are looking to do it yourself, look at my rebuild thread of my 272 in the formula section. Somewhere in the middle of the 14 pages is how I redid the engine hatch and some of the seat cushions. I went low cost, only cost me the new vinyl but it looks good to me. Others would disagree but that is part of sharing ideas and projects.

Good luck, Brian

Oh, post in the formula section also, good group there.

I rebuilt a Formula years back it was realy easy due to the way Formula builds there boats. The fastners are easily accessed for the most part. Once you get it apart it's pretty easy to use the old parts for a pattern to cut out all the new ones.
