Title: Seats
Post by: Dipsy Deb on October 02, 2019, 04:21:57 PM
Hi just a question, pulled the cobra Monaco seats out of my LWB RAT and wanted to know if it's cheaper to have seats recovered or replace with used seats?  Any input on prices or info appreciated. Cheers Deb

A furniture upholstery may be cheaper than a ‘specialist’ car upholster. You may be lucky and find some cheap seats which suite your needs  :-\

Hi had a price of £150 - £200 per seat which I thought a bit expensive. What do you think? 🤔

Depends on how much you like your seats and how much new ones are if available, second hand production car seats may be cheaper and the upholstery will last longer.

Far too expensive Deb. Get yourself up north. Some will recover for a cup of tea (2 sugars) and milk  ;D
I managed to get a pair of Mamba buckets for £100 delivered from the south coast  :-\

Hi i was just trying to keep my seats instead of buying different ones, but think it's cheaper to buy used or even new.  What a waste really they only need new foam, covers are not too bad.  Just seats a little uncomfortable due to foam having disintegrated.  Cheers Deb

Have a word with my mate "Guy" at West Country Trimmers in Bovey Tracey - tell him you just want foam replaced and mention the Buggy Club

Hi change of plan due to the ridiculous prices I have been quoted to recover them, looking for second hand ones now if anybody has some to sell. 👍 Cheers Debbie

There are production car seats that fit you will find elsewhere.
Better quality and longer lasting than after market.

MX5
Cappuccino
Smart

Others will probably add more models
