easy leather piece to remove for color match

I have a 2008 GTC and it is in Magnolia leather , my leather expert sent me a swatch to match because she said difficult color to get right. It had the bentley logo on the back of the swatch and everything but it was too light. So she said if I could get a piece she could use that to match. What is an easy piece (I am not even a shade tree mechanic) that I can remove that is leather covered to mail to her for color match? Thanks, Bob

Just looking for leather covered piece to remove

My issue is that there seem to be many shades of the Magnolia leather so I need a piece off my car to send to a leather dye company so they can make a match. Thanks, Bob

Perhaps under the rear seat cushion or rear seat rear seat back. I had mine out but I don't remember if there are bits to be taken. The rear seat cushion removal: pull from the front hard up words, releases it. Rear seat back: at the bottom is a 10 mm hex nut remove it and the seat back comes out. There is a video online on how to remove the rear seat cushion and rear panels ( by Luke at Alpine Performance).

The leather is so precisely trimmed, I can't think of a good place as a donor for more than a square centimeter.

However, I've had excellent results wit colourlock from the UK. The bottle of dye I got from them was dead on for me. (saddle)

Unfortunately, even their website states Magnolia in particular has variation. Maybe they can help with a donor location? I did find that under the console wood panel, towards the back, there was some leather glued down. It's out of the sun, so hopefully that's what you're looking for.

Thanks,
