SEATS RE-TRIMMED


Recommended Posts

hi ppl

just wondered if anyone knew a cheapish trimmer, i have just had a quote of £675 inc vat but i thought it was

a little too much for what i wanted, and it went down to around £650 if i had leather and not alcantara.

i DO NOT need the whole lot doing, i just want the centres of the seats in light blue (leather/alcantara) but diamond/quilted

and a patch (gt/race style) about 6" on the side of the seat in black. so not a full retrim by a long way. i do understand the

material is alot though and the mark up is alot also.

thanx in advance ppl

(p.s. to the ppl that know me, the car is in the body shop as i type, nothing to major,,,he he he he)

thanx alot matey, the place i got a quote from was south brum way so wooolllvveerrrhampton isnt a problem

i do understand the diamond stich may put price up a little, might be worth having the lot done in leather, not

as if the GT3 seats even have backs to them

Hi Karl, am ya doin, ( thats local dialect for those who 'a' frum rund ere,)

I have recently had my interior completely recovered in leather in wolves and not a bad job though i say it myself. I am based in wolves with my nearly finished modified SE. and would love to see your GT3 with all its mods. If you want to pop round and see my interior before i fit it , it may give you some ideas. Although it is mainly SE by design there are some subtle 'CHANGES' to give it that personal feel !!

If interested let me know and i will pm my details

Thanks Roger.

The SE is such a great base for restoration / mods / upgrades. Although a lot of the upgrade parts from later models won't fit without making a few 'changes' . This leads to headache's ,redesigning parts, and a bucket load of cash. But you already know this.

I would love to see your SE sometime, are you doing any shows where i could get a glimpse?

Best regards

Dave

I've no shows or meets planned but that's not to say i'm not up for a hoon sometime...i think my upgrades will be significantly pale compared to the outstanding work you've done on your SE...and probably Karl's

No I don't like the Europa, Evora or Exos.

Hi guys ,

Thanks for those kind words Roger , but i am sure i would be equally impressed with your mods. I think Karl is the radical one ! the picture on his site of the rear of the GT3 is inspiring, Now that is modernisation !!!!!...

The details you wanted karl, on who did my trim. were........ Aldridge trim Wolverhampton Tel; 01902 710805 ... contact ....Simon Aldrige... I have used them on all the classics i have built for over 20 years and recommended them to many people. They will undertake whatever you want and are very professional , Hope this is of help.

Dave

PS I am from the yam yam part of the mids but not a yam yam myself, at least i don't think i am . !!!!!! :ermm:

Hi Karl

Could not say how much just seats are to do as i had everything done . floor to sun visors,doors ,dash, 'a' pilars etc... That cost £4K+. This was with bespoke parts so cost more than a standard SE interior, this is usually around £3200. an S4 onwards is cheeper as dash upwards not leather . Door cards and seat are around £1200. The best thing to do is pop and see Simon with your motor, or the parts you want doing, He will give you an exact quote, you may be suprised. Your GT3 seats will be much cheeper than SE ones as less to them . The above prices are only a guide from recent estimates i have had . There does not seem to be a set price for any particular job on interiors so i always get a quote. sometimes i'm impressed an suprised how reasonable. other times it scares the crap out of me.

Hope this is of help

Dave
