Hi all, to update you, I've now transferred all the remaining unsold cloth to Mark at the Beta Boyz shop http://www.lanciabetaparts.co.uk/ along with the details on how to get more / alternative colours as needed.

I hope you'll all understand as the shop has costs to cover and make a bit of profit the price will go up now.

Bottom line, if you've not yet paid me for cloth, you now need to approach Mark for it.

Thanks
Chris

I picked up my seats from the trimmers today. Door cards still to come. With the car still in a dreadful state it'll be a while before I have photos of them in it, so here's some of them in my garage instead!

In short, they look absolutely bloody fantastic with the new cloth and foam.

Rear seats



Rear headrests


Kudos to https://superbtrimmingservice.co.uk/ as the trimmers here

Hi Chris,

That looks absolutely brilliant! Top quality work and the new cloth looks sensational. Dare I ask how much it cost (PM me if you prefer)?

The job was a grand, that was for trimming all the seats, retrimming the rear door cards, making new front door cards from scratch and giving the door furniture a lick and a polish. Looks like it will use up all of the 9 metres of cloth on the way.

I've not really got a frame of reference for if that's a good or a bad price - for me the experience of the trimmer having done this model of seats before and understanding the vagaries of getting the cloth pattern right etc meant I didn't seek go chasing my other contacts. Although if I'd known that the car itself was going to end up with a chap whose main background was as a trimmer, maybe I would have proceeded differently! Spilt milk, under the bridge Smiley

Hi Chris

A great job and a great price IMHO. Especially with new door cards made as well. I really want to see the door cards, because that is the part I am most concerned will be a challenge for most trimmers because of the bonded plastic sections.

I would also say that sounds like a great price.
Someone on Ebay is offering to retrim Spyder seats for 1500 quid. Yes it includes some vinyl and some leather but in comparison I would say good value for money to have all the work you have had done.

Something you might consider if the seats are going to be in the garage over the winter is risk of rodents coming into to the warn and possible damage they might cause.

With next door having no end of rodent problems, plus a collection of extremely lazy cats, have already been through a decent amount of effort in rodentproofing the house Smiley that said, I will try and sneak them indoors - for some reason the missus thinks that room for the babies stuff is more important..

Hi

Look stunning and I think the price is excellent too. I had my Spider seats (leather) and 4 door cards (leather and vinyl) and centre console (vinyl) retrimmed 11 years ago inc materials for 1k from a guy who worked from home and I thought that very reasonable, so I think after all this time, not unreasonable at all.

Yes, keep them in the house, not the garage and wrap them up until you are ready to install, which I guess may be a while!
