Hi all. I have some seats need recovering. Is there anyone someone can recommend in the south east that gives value for money.

I might have a go myself. Cut the Alcantara to size then some spray adhesive. Doing the panels separately should make it easier than trying to cut out a single piece . Stick it straight onto the existing leather

I suppose I should have said. They are from an elise so relatively simple I think. They dont recline and only a couple of bends around the outside that might be tricky. Little bit of foam.
Has to be a first time for everything

I still think you'll struggle to make it look nice where the pieces meet.
