No sure I like the inside,Looks to new. For the outside being so worn, Just my thoughts.

I too noticed the difference of wear on the outside with little to none on the inside.

Hello Gentlemen,
I am indeed the seller of this liner. While the wear pattern is unusual, I have absolutely no concerns regarding its authenticity. For whatever reason, the exterior paint did not adhere well to the liner's duck cloth. The interior components are all original. Let me know if I can answer any questions!

Hi

After owning 5 of these liners they all suffer from poor paint adhesion.

Regards
