Alcantara Repair

Post by Paynter17 » Thu 01 Feb, 2018 8:02 am

We bought the wife a new car with a full Alcantara interior, but unfortunately the seat base has had a tear in it that someone has tried to repair...badly.

has anyone know/had someone redo a seat before ?

I ended up using a guy called Chris in Plawsworth, his work shop is in the petrol station.

I'd recomend him as he is a great bloke and his work is fantstic, and hes fairly cheap.
