I was given a full roll of the deck chair style striped material that was fitted to the Mini 1275GT. I have made some tentative enquiries about re-foaming the back of the material (I was told it could be done) and of course having new covers made for the seats. Has anyone had any experience of this and would you be prepared to recommend someone to undertake this work?

 

As you can see from the link I have had this for 5 years now and it has been dry stored.

Good morning,

 

We can certainly use the material to make seat covers for you.

 

For a full set of seat covers (non-reclining fronts & a standard back seat) you would be looking at around £250 (+P&P), we would need to look into matching the tan leatherette for the borders though (which means it could work out a little more expensive, depending on the leatherette match).

 

Plus, it looks like there is a lot more than one interiors worth on that roll, so we could certainly sort out some sort of group discount for multiple seat cover kits (if anyone else was interested).

 

Drop us a call (01782 579 080) or an email ([email protected]) if you are interested and we can start to get the ball rolling.

 

 

Regards,

Andy @ Optimise Automtoive

Slight hijack, but may save a phone call.....

 

Andy, I was intending to order some door cards and a parcel shelf from your site. I see you may be selling carpets soon. Any idea how soon, and if you'll be doing a 'moulded' option?

We are hoping to finalise and launch carpet sets within the next 2 months (and no, they will not be moulded).

Thanks, just picked this up, I think the leatherette was black for this colour and yes I'll probably have the whole roll made up into covers, would like a spare set for my car and I'll sell the rest to cover costs. Where are you based?

Good morning,

 

We are based in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire - should cost around £10 to send us the fabric (Interparcel: LINK or Parcels2Go: LINK).

 

Alternatively if you did want to drop the cloth off, full address as follows:

 

Optimise Automotive,
Unit 47 Winpenny Road,
Parkhouse Ind Est East,
Newcastle-under-Lyme,

Just been sorting out this cloth, some images below:

and another:

This is about 1/4 way down the roll and it is near perfect but I would like to get the whole roll refoamed so I know it is right:

Hello there Jase,

if you do get these made into seat covers I'd be very interested in buying a set.

Thanks.

I'm going to Himley this year to chat to some upholsterers. I'd prefer to sort the manufacture out face to face as this is probably one of the only rolls left :(

Jase, Im certainly interested in a set of covers.
Im in contact with a local furniture upholster as I was planning to have my existing seats or at least the vinyl parts. Ive also spoken with an auto upholster in Wales. Happy to share details.

Hi Jase,
I am very interested in a full set of seat covers as well. I have just acquired my second 1275gt and am excited about putting it back to spec.
