Hopefully the width of the roll will allow it to be done in one piece. Maybe 0.3m will do both, haven't measured it yet.

However have not found a suitable replacement tape to match Saab's original. Use of glue tends to discolour the material if headlining is used. I have also thought of respraying the existing piece after repairs with a cream colour plastic spray paint.
