Seat covering
« on: November 06, 2019, 10:24:07 AM »
Does anyone know who can make seat covers at a reasonable price?  Just been quoted £120 for an Aermacchi seat which seems a lot though he did say it would look like original, were they in suede?

Contact Rod butterworth. I'm sure he said he had some done. May even have one on the shelf. He's on the forum.

Go onto fleabay and get yourself some "closed cell foam rubber" it comes in various sizes, and is sticky backed, as in once it's stuck down, it's stuck! but the best thing is that it can be sanded down with some coarse grade wet and dry or sandpaper, and you can make a decent job out of it with a bit of care. Try to cut it with a sharp knife, with one cut, using a template, it's cheap as well as being water proof.
