#1 Series 1 4.2 seat refurbishment recommendations

Post by Pethers » Sat May 23, 2020 5:46 pm

Evening all.

I have replacement leather and seat foam bottoms. Anyone got a recommendation of who to get to complete the job and approximate cost? Would need to blast the Frames and paint. And put back together.

Many thanks

Mark

You asked for recommendations......
Saying this quietly...... don’t want to upset the purists....
Refurbish and keep the original seats but don’t install them. Instead, find a pair of MX5 mk1 seats. Get them covered in matching leather. They are far more comfortable, supportive, and have headrests. Speak to Angus or DIY.
