New Product - Non-Recliner Seat Back Foam / Sponge

 
  Another new foam from my workshop.

I took a week off to develop these seat back foams and I'm really happy with the results.

You will really notice the strong curves of the side bolsters compared to your old crumbling foams. They fill out the covers beautifully and hug your sides when driving.

They look great, feel great and are great value too!

New Product - Headrest Retrim Kit

 
These are simply the best and easiest headrest retrim kits on the market!

Your old headrest foam will fall apart when you take your old cover off - BIG PROBLEM if you only have new covers!

My solution is to supply the covers are already fitted to brand new foams. You only have to slide in your headrest stem for a perfect finish!

Product Update

Seat foams are a BIG step closer! I have completed my first cushion foams / sponges and they look great when trimmed up.

They're made from CNC cut, high density foam so you get really good profiles that will last... unlike some others I've bought over the years!

14 Feb 07 New Products - Seat Clip Packs  

New
Product

I can now supply new seat clips to go with your new seat covers. Forget about saving your bent and rusty old clips because they simply don't work as well. I've added some spare clips so you're guaranteed a great finish!

If you're new trimming then take a look at the results Jon Saxby has achieved. Interior trim really IS that easy!

16 Jan 07 Shipping Savings & New Site Layout  

Shipping Savings

I have cut my shipping prices yet again! I am now sending more and more parcels by courier (normally UPS) so my rates have got even better e.g. Shipping trim boards to the USA / Canada is now only 40 (previously 76!). I don't make any money out of shipping so the benefit is all yours. Enjoy!

Phew! I've just finished revamping the site to make it easier to find what you want. I hope you like the changes and any feedback is always welcome.

18 Dec 06 New Products - New Seat Covers  

New Product

My second new seat cover for 2006 is for the Spitfire MkIV non-reclining frame. Lots of people have emailed me asking when this would be ready and now here it is! I will start shipping orders from Jan 4th... sorry for the slight delay but I'm getting a new baby for Christmas! The good news is that the finished seat looks gorgeous and is the easiest seat to trim that I have found. 

Foams - I've had enough of being let down by foam suppliers so I'm developing my own in-house foams... Jan / Feb 2007.

13 Sept 06 New Product - Spitfire & GT6 Seat Covers  

New Product

My first set of covers has finally reached the Web! Every stage has taken much longer than expected - even adding them to the site has taken 2 days instead of the 15 minutes I had planned! The good news is that I am very happy with the covers and the next set will be developed MUCH quicker.

I have completely revamped the website in honour of the occasion - simplifying the shipping costs (FREE shipping in most cases), adding a discount on larger orders and giving the home page a more lively look.

I hope you like the changes and don't forget to tell your friends about me! Cheers, Owen.
