Fabric covered bonnets?

Ken Kimber sent a link to this centre spread from Association mag 1972B, of an early transition RF(2) car with small rad and integrated roof peak. It IS only an illustration BUT look at the image further down the page where the later, Chromium RF(3) car (medium bonnet and separate peak) plainly has the same form of illustration but different surface treatment to the bonnet, and the characteristic form we know of.

1929 RF

Has anyone got any evidence of an RF(2) with such a bonnet covering having existed? Bear in mind the Gordon England saloons of the time had the same rexine surface to their bonnets, and some cars have been restored without this.

We still search for the fabled RF(1) which may have been rare and may well now be extinct. If you know of a Fabric car with R Saloon style doors (rather than the long-door RK style), please get in touch!
