Title: Fabric swatch
Post by: Jono on March 13, 2022, 10:43:48 PM
A long shot, but, I'm looking to eventually retrim my 77 coupe in the red nylon fabric. At present I have the green. Does anyone have a sample of the red so I can accurately replicate it? Jono

Is this the sort of thing you are looking for? If so I have some new old stock seat covers that I ought to sell on to someone who needs them. Mostly they are coupe but some are HPE with the vinyl side panels and the foam backing would need replicating on at least some.

Hello! Your image is of a complete front seat in the colour I'm looking for. Are you using that image as an example of the colour? If so, that's it. Are you offering, for sale, a complete set of seats, or seat covers? I have a 77 coupe, and so am not wanting vinyl sides. What about rear seats/covers in the red/orange? Obviously I'd be needing fabric for the door panels, but that could be achieved with a close match. Question of cost? Where are you in the uk? Thanks in advance, J

Watching with interest as I have just loaded the boot of my car with seats and cards for trimming. If you have NOS seat covers with vinyl sides and more fabric any competent trimmer can make the sides in cloth and stich them on relatively cheaply.
Car trimming is a job for experienced professionals more art than science. There are plenty around in this country see there work before using one as quality varies
