Hi All.
I have a set of standard seats to recover for my car and see WagenmanufakturHQ is selling a reproduction 51-52 fabric in the classified section. I was wondering if anyone had used it yet and how accurate they found it.

Also are there any altenative suppliers?

I have not used that exact fabric, but other material I have from Marcus have been top notch.

to my knowledge no one else is making the correct 51-52 standard fabric.

Same here, I have not used the exact fabric but I purchased the entire interior from Marc for my '50 standard US import and like sled said, the material is top notch. I'm very happy with it.

While I don't have any photos to share at this moment, I am restoring a December 1951 Standard. I had the original stripegrey seat covers and I will add another note of support for Marcus Raeke. I waited approximately 9 months for him to source the correct fabric and the results were perfect.

If you are restoring a 1951 Standard with Stripegrey seat covers, the Marcus is definitely the person you need to connect with.
