Not sure. I know things like the plastic trim pieces over the rear
speakers for example are just covered with a thin vinyl textured sheet
of plastic molded and glued to it for the most part. I think DMCH sells
cut and shaped vinyl to recover the console with, but it doesn't have
the 'waviness' of the original covering though the texture is correct.
You'd just have to start ordering material samples from various
upholstry manufactures, and start going by any local upholstry shops to
you until you can eventually find the right material. If DMCH can get it
i'm sure it can be gotten from elsewhere, as I doubt DMCH will tell you
their source or sell you just the material on the roll.  I can tell you
this though. to do pieces such as the rear trim panels, Your best off
trying to find a vinyl. that doesn't have a fabric backing. This will be
much more elastic and much easier to mold to all the curves with some
applied heat.. Normal vinyl is stretchy to an extent as well, but not
nearly as much.
