    Default a replica seat insert fabric for 205 GTis

    Hi fellas,
    I'd like to take this opportunity of letting you know about a new fabric I have just finished the development work on. It's a "good look alike" for the PUG original fabric called "Quartet". I have completed wear/abrasion tests on it and I'm now selling it through my firms web site shop loocated here:

    For those of you who don't know me I am the Brit guy who sells replacement seat thigh bolster foam and have several customers in OZ (thanks guys)
    Have a look, comments appreciated, and all orders gratefully accepted. My shipments to Australia has been PDQ in the past.
    thanks
    Dave Hickman

    It looks really good I must say.

    Do you have it in green as I have a Sorrento coloured car?

    Hi mate,
    I certainly do - but because the demand for it is a lot less than the red/black I have set up a subscription list for interested buyers here:

    Default a relica insert fabric (cont)

    Hi,
    it's not an exact copy. This isn't possible as the original material is a "composite" of yarn and strips of plastic backed felt (red/black or green/black). I offer this material "Quintet" on a supply only basis as I appreciate that people sometimes want to arrange for trimming to be done elsewhere. My main market for this material is my own range of replacement seat covers that I am currently getting up to speed with pre-production.
    The actual inserts would need either 0.75 metres (2 seats) or 1.5 for the whole car.
    regards
    Dave

    Default sorry I missed this one :)

    HI,
    to recover all 4 of your seats the following material would be required.
    Inserts: 1.5 metres of (relevant) material for 2 fronts and 2 rears.
    and
    for surrounds/bolsters: 3.5 metres of black polyester needlecord (for 1.6 GTi)
    Materials chosen are down to personal choice but the figures are accurate. The measurements rely on a standard roll width of 1.5 metres.
    This doesn't include the front seat vinyl backs to the backrests. I have these measured up and patterned as well.
    regards

    PS red Quintet is now available - It arrived last Friday, and the green version is just waiting to get to it's MOQ of 22 roll units. Delivery procedure now tried and tested so should be available a lot quicker.
