Lee, where did you get the upholstery done? I'm looking for someone to do the front seat on the P4.

A guy in St Peters, I can get you his number if you wish? He doesn't normally do car interiors but likes a challenge. Feel free to pop down the garage and have a look at the quality of it....

If you want the number of somebody who is amazing at car interior who is situated in herne bay you want John Back, Dad has his number somewhere.

I am on the look out for someone who can MAKE, not copy, a tonneau cover.
All the ones I have tried, including those with stands at shows, "Need the old one" to copy.
Even when I tell them their isn't one I am told "see if I can borrow one from someone with the same car" ????
When I tell them the car is a 'one of' they seem to find someone else to talk to.

Looking more like I will have to DIY

I think you are going to struggle to find anyone, most people are after quick and easy jobs that make money! Although there must be someone out there! Smile

So just a last little note to everyone! I won't be posting up anymore pictures on the internet of the camper, want to keep the rest a surprise for Volksworld (not that there is a lot you haven't seen).

The camper is now back down the spray shop with no interior, rubbers, door handles in etc etc.
I have 11 days to finish it and its not even at my workshop! Wish me luck!

But the good news is my windows and carpet have arrived! Smile Really happy with them!
