    Welcome. Not all DS interiors were created equal, so you really need to specify exactly which model you have and need parts for. A photo of what you have or need would help. If you have seats/trims already and are looking for better ones, then consider one of trim kits on offer instead because you will find most of the used seats are rubbish now. You might be lucky though. There were recently some brown leather seats listed on gumtree, but they are in Sydney. Worth checking.

    This thread should really find it's way to the Parts section of the forum, so don't be entirely surprised if it moves.

    There was an ad for leather DS seats in the gumtree classifieds last week.
    Good luck.

    there is a guy in France doing targa, velour (both $480) and leather covers, ($1120) seems good price, whether they're any good stitching finish wise is another issue, a frogger recently told me he got some leather done through Franzose and aside from the price is very happy with them. The guy in France details from ebay ad that is now off is info@eurogenn.com
    if you do any business with them let us know how you go, I am interested in getting some Targa done up, to go with spec for 74 DSpecial. Not the most comfortable stuff but easier to keep clean than velour no doubt.

    If this is the same fella, his name is Richard Parker. I have a different email address.

    He does seats only, but I wasn't too sure he realised the differences between the types of seats. He might be more familiar with the late models.
    Initially he was slow to reply (3 days), then became quicker. The sample requested never arrived and I can't see how he could offer the leather he (claims) at 25 pounds per square metre, top class Yarwood, aviation spec leather. he said all the leather from Yarwood in the UK was the same price, 25 pounds per square metre.

    Bottom line, I didn't receive a sample and the deal just sounded too good to be true.

    How often would that situation have prevented a sale???
    Am I safe in thinking not often?

    The OP might like to take a look at the citronpieces website.

    That's good to know with Richard Parker, the deals that appear to be too good to be true most often are.

    Citron pieces aren't exactly crap, and are not far from a quality similar to that of the original manufacture. The fit of course can be improved by the person doing the job.

    Thanks for all your replays, my car is a 1971 19B and I am not sure, the door trims don't look like the Dspecial ones with the bolt on arm rests, maybe they have been change previously. I not sure if it is a Dspecial or Dsuper, can anybody tell me the difference between the two models. The original color is AC 522 thats green, but the car is AC421 Bordeaux Red and there is no green left anywere, not inside the doors or under the red. The old door trims are red with the molded arm rests, but not the full door trims like a DS Pallas.
    Appreciate your insites

    Hello

    here's a link to my DS bible.

    http://www.nuancierds.fr/1971%20tables.htmDS
    It shows DSpecial, Super and Pallas all came in that colour option in 71. Definitely not with red seats though so probably changed at some stage of your car's history. Vert Charmille was a 69, 71 and 72 colour..not 70 though, that was reserved for Vert Muscinee. My 70 DSpecial is an ID19B on the build plate but has the DSpecial badge on the boot.. a crossover period for the designation from my readings.


    Here is the ref for the door cards..
    http://www.nuancierds.fr/DT%20pannea...cial%20etc.htm

    It's a great site if you haven't seen it... lots of info to ingest. Hope that helps.

    I have some salvaged parts of a DS Pallas leather interior with lots of patina. It needs a fair amount of help, but it could still be useful for that original, well worn look in a future project I have in mind. Has anyone recently completed a retrim and had original brown leather left over, just waiting to go to the tip? I'm mainly after a reasonable rear seat backrest cover with the armrest cover, preferably the lighter brown Naturel used before 1971. The less important items like the grab handles, seat back covering, door tops and B-pillar trim would be helpful, but they are readily available new. Using new leather for those wouldn't be very obvious, whereas it would stand out for the rear seat backrest. I have no immediate need for any of this, just thought I'd ask in case someone is about to throw anything away.
