The Woollies trim kits are fantastic if you are game for DIY


Get a No 2 Kit, then you can give plenty of coats

Can the original splits, creases still be seen at close inspection? is it a bit like using shoe polish on old shoes, looks good from a distance, but not close up?

Yes, but to me that is a bonus, new seats in an old car look new, no matter what you do. There is something special about the look of well loved leather, and I think with careful restoration and recoating, you can hide years of neglect more than you can hide years of use

Hi Nigel

I have just had my complete interior re-covered and it is spot on, as you are local to me if you wanted to see it before i fitted it in it may help you make the decision on how to proceed, I can also say it was done local by an extremely reputable company who specialise in this kind of work.

hope this is of help.
