Interior started


Recommended Posts

  • Gold FFM

I've started the recolouring of the interior trim last night.

One door card done, other one started.

Got a really easy system to use from a guy in our village who supplies to match.

Someone has in the past recoloured a light cream rather than the factory magnolia. Luckily I've got a colour match to the old stereo panel which was in the glove box.

Here's some before and after shots... Have got to strip and spray the window switch plates as the look really scabby now.....

Thanks Mike

Seats needed cutting out - frames having some new bolts welded in tomorrow.

Both seats, door cards, glove box done - rest of the trim will be done in situ the weekend.

Refit Sunday - and take for a drive......

I agree that looks much better and a job I have to do myself as I have the same interior in the same colour and similar condition.

I'm not sure if it's the flash or the photo,but it does look a bit more shiny than new leather.

Is there a less shiny option available?

That's the flash - it's satin finish.

You can get a Matt - or mix 50-50 to dull down between the two.

It's simple and easy to do, you can take as long as you want to do it. Spray with airbrush and do a seat I a couple of days - or sponge and hairdryer and do the same in a couple of hours ......

Should I tidy this before bed??

No stuck cat this morning

Ripped the tunnel bit off and have done that.

Seat bases having bolts welded in - pick them up in the morning.

Will colour the rest of the dash tomorrow and get on with the refit - pics to follow....

It's gone from really tired, shabby and cracked to showroom lovely.

The pics really don't show how much it's transformed.

KIt's £100 - and a few hours of love!!! You can get any colour mixed you want. http://www.leather-forever.net

Bit of a plug - but Chris is a really helpful chap local to me

Thread resurrection! Hi Barry, I'm looking at buying an esprit that needs the interior redone, the leather looks pretty good but the colour needs a refresh.  The link to that website isn't working, can you, or anyone recommend somewhere else I can get this sort of leather kit?  Cheers!

There's a few different folks that do it. I only know about the one I've used.

over time - the seats have worn ok - on the arm rest there's a tiny bit of rub off - but I have done nearly 4000 miles in it since - and I'm a real scruffy mucky bugger!!

Will pm you Chris's mobile number - he can sort a kit in any colour you want
