I finally got the VX Repro Fabric trim work done. So a major job done I now have seats and door cards looking fantastic. The Hood Tourneau cover is being made in matching Mohair next week.
I just need to get through the chaos of house selling and moving a lot of serious and large tools and sheet material with a LOT of car part crates.

Strange compression of 1 picture but you get the idea and they do look and feel amazing. This fabric has to be lined according to my trimmer or it will fray later. He used Alcantara for this because it has the right give and is strong. You will note my stupid mistake in not painting the pull handle at the front of the seat. This leaves me the terrifying idea of painting it with the seat trimmed!

9 meters was just enough with no mistakes made FYI

Expect to have to plate the headrest stays and note they are held with R Clips deep in the seat back so checkout youtube for how. Recaro have been out of business for some years and plastic bits are getting rare so get on ebay sooner rather than later if you have broken bits.
I was very lucky to have the map pockets and designer taps on 1 of my 2 seats of interiors.

I will be selling the salvage OE trim parts to rescue your VX Seats with rips and tears.

Enjoy

They do look superb. Interesting idea from the trimmer to line the seats with Alcantara first.
Makes me want to get my seats recovered now but I keep telling myself they’re not that bad.
But one tear and the material comes out of the loft and off to the trimmers we go.

Eric, do you mind sharing the name of your trimmer?

Cheers
Ian

Hey Eric,
Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere in the topic. Are you using the same Link Fury G4+ as you used on your Montecarlo?

Hi Mark

Yes I am, but I should have waited for the very latest Link which is even better.
