    Smile Retrim recommendations?

    Hi all. Just looking into the future and one 'upgrade' I may be looking at eventually is an interior retrim, sort of 'part 2' to go with the Capristo and Hyperflows. My seats are looking a lot better than they were but the reconnolising was only really an interim measure. As I think the leather itself under the repair is cracked, they will need to be done again at some stage. Rather than perpetually getting them stripped and recoloured I like the idea of getting new leather and actually looking after it. I looked around and found a company that did some pretty awsome work but a rough quote specically for my 348 seemed to include a little too much Ferrari Tax for me; 4000 for the seats, 5500 for the rest. I'm guessing I can get a good quality retrim for less than just shy of 10k. Any suggestions? I'm north of Watford (in Lincolnshire actually) but for good work at the right price can obviously ship the car.

    Try B-Trim in Enfield. They specialise in BMW and Porsche but I know have done Ferraris in the past too. Very high standard of work and reasonable cost.

    Thanks Faisal. I know there are places about that are quite a bit cheaper than the company I spoke to down towards Norfolk. 5k just for the seats seems a bit steep (to say the least). If and when I do go for it, I want a decent job done, though. I'll not B-Trim down as a possible to chase up. Cheers.

    Faisal, there's got to be some mistake. Just been looking a B-Trim. For a mid size saloon for front and rear seats, door cards and rear panels, and all done in bespoke Nappa at a bit extra, they're quoting 1600. Even the lot in a Range Rover Sport is only 2k in bespoke Nappa. I'd want the lot done (ie centre consol, dash doors but obviously only 2 seats which should offset it a bit. Seems a good price compared to my other estimate. Not sure how they can charge that much?!? Great tip. Cheers.

    Thanks Steve. I'm guessing you're happy with the result? Did you just get the Tan done or the black as well? May just need the cream but at a reasonable price might go the whole hog. I'd be looking at handing the car over rather than stripping her down myself (knowing you a tad, guessing you did it yourself?) does he do the lot or do you know anyone who may be looking for a small project at a reasonable price?

    I can second that from Steve, Mark trimmed the seats on every show car I produced as I don't do stitching.

    He also did the seats and steering wheel in my BM, Bentley Beluga leather bolsters, diamond stitched Alcantara centres and leather with Alcantara on the steering wheel. I will post some pics if I get chance to

    Very happy, Mark is a top bloke and he did the trim on this http://www.boxofficefootball.com/pim...blue-moon-car/
    obviously not to everyone's taste but I like it and it was made even better that Mark is a ManU fan

    I did the strip out and refit myself.Mainly only the Tan done with a small amount of the black.I'm sure Mark will do all the work but you would need to have a chat with him about it.
