Wanted: OEM speaker cloth for CTC 4 Director 21

I'm about to start the restoration of a Director 21, if anyone has original speaker cloth I would like to buy it. Thanks!

It's all worn through where the rag rubbed on it from the housekeeper (whoever that was) It's not from kids or anything like that. I think the scratches are from the mover and people at the estate sale since I can tell they're fresh. I'll make those go away, they're the kind that disappear when you lick your finger and rub them

Is there any other RCAs that used this cloth or only this one?

In case you don't find an original, that cloth looks easier to match than many old radio cloths, which have spangly patterns, etc. Do an Internet search for "speaker grill cloth," etc., and you'll find some sources. I think that might be a sort of cane weave. Anyhow, FR1004 at this site looks like a similar weave.

Ask for free samples so you can compare color and size of weave. Teeny photos on a computer screen are not great for color matching.

Don't bother digging through piles of stuff at fabric stores. Been there, done that.
