Hi.
Yes it's me clogging up the forum again, but so thankful for your help so far.
June 52 standard.
I've located seat frames with springs, correct fabric and a trimmer I trust. however I dont have old seat covers to use as a pattern. Are there any templates available? or dimentions on the web?

The trimmer I gave you the details of, has the patterns/templates, or are you using somebody else?

yes, it pays to use someone who knows what they are doing because split seats need to be done RIGHT or they will look like shit.

I have a guy in Wiltshire that Iíve used before. Quality is great and heís fairly local. But without templates, I wonít risk it and will give your guy the business for sure.

He's not 'my guy', but somebody Rod Sleigh knows & recommended to me, who 1st did the seats for Rod's 46 Beetle, and because of the great work, I asked him to do my seats for the 47, which I'm more than happy with.

If you mean "my fabric" i can offer the seatcovers also.
But not before BREXIT
