Seat restoration urgently needed

#1 PostAuthor: steve452 » Mon Jun 29, 2020 2:04 pm

Anyone know of a good seat restorer who can replace the foam on my original Z1-B seat and tart up the base and the cover (which are in good nick for their age and just need a bit of tlc). P & P Seating, and RK Leighton Seats, both in Birmingham appear to be currently closed due to the health emergency. The restorer would have to be within reasonable driving distance of Southampton (say 150 miles odd) as I do not want to run the risk of a "Lost in transit". Any help greatly appreciated.

Many thanks for that. My missus is going up to Sidcup in the near future to see her son. Looks like I'll be joining her :D
