"Hoods tooth?"

I think you mean "Houndstooth."

They're out there, but I can't remember the supplier. But if you search for houndstooth pattern in Google Images, you'll find a zillion variations that you can manipulate for color and size, then print on decal paper.

I was going to mention Scale Motorsport, but checking their patterns they're a bit too square and not quite matching houndstooth.

Yeah, that would be the route I would go if I couldn't find a supplier. You can "tile" the image as your screen background, do a screen capture, then copy the pattern that way.

I make my own on clear decal paper.  I just found a good Houndstooth pattern and replicated it to a large decal sheet.

Yep, Mr Obsessive I was that one also, it kinda close but not exactly on point. I think I`ll shot an e-mail to Matthew at Scale Motorsports inquiring if they have a hoodstooth upholstery decal sheet.

The Revell 69 Camaro Convertible had the houndstooth decals in the kit, what car are you looking to put those decals on?

Just a tip. You can print your own decals on either inkjet or laser decal paper; laser will print sharper at small scales, and if you make your graphics file to scale, you can take laser decal paper and a CD of your file to a place like Staples, Office Depot or UPS store for laser printing.

PS...For large-scale kits, say 1/12 or 1/8, you can get cotton cloth for inkjet printers at hobby shops like Michael's, Hobby Lobby or A.C.Moore. I found mine in the T-shirt decorating area. Faster to shop online.

Not to geek out on Camaro knowledge but its funny the convertible kit came with the houndstooth as the 1:1 car you could not get houndstooth in a convertible outside of the Pace cars.

Scale Motorsport used to make Houndstooth decals.  They were set #1970.  I have a sheet right here in front of me.  They're no longer in their catalog.  I'll try to get a photo posted a bit later; I'm on my way out to cut grass.

Okay, Dean was first.  but a Houndstooth pattern is this:

And I don't think the 1970 SMS pattern is correct for that.
