Default recone coral flat 8

hello,

i'm looking for a recone kit for my coral flat 8.

the cone is gotten stiff so i would like to put a new one in place.

problem is that there is not much information online. The suspension is not foam or rubber but a kind of cloth.

could anybody help me out what i need and where to get it ?
and if it is doable to do it myself ?

thanks in advance
kind regards

thanks guys,

i really have tried everything to soften the cloth. i had another topic with a mass of information in it....

nothing helped, but i guess that the fostex cloth could do the trick very well.

does anybody know where i can buy these ? also, what would be the best way to get rid of the old one ?

thanks guys
