Restoration » Coach Trimming


Second perhaps only to paintwork, the quality of the trim gets a car noticed - or criticised. We undertake all aspects of trimming - from a full retrim, to hoods and headlinings, tonneau covers and hood bags, carpets and rubber matting.

 We research the trim options available on your car in period, or offer modern alternatives if you prefer. So your headlining can be West of England cloth, perforated vinyl, or even Alcantara. 

We have a great relationship with Jonathan Connolly (of Connolly leather); have used his 'Vaumol' leather several times, and we have samples of many  of his different leathers in-house. We can of course work with any leather samples you prefer. Suppliers across Europe enable us to offer period vinyl patterns, correct upholstery material and period rubber matting in various profiles.

 If you are fortunate your car may have an original interior which simply needs revitalising - or even just a thorough clean. In many ways this is the best option - a patinated but sound leather interior adds a wonderful feel to a car. We have carried out leather recolouring and renovation - a job we entrust to an outside specialist - in fact the only person Jonathan Connolly recommends. Whilst only possible within a limited spectrum of colours close to your original, it can prove an attractive and cost-effective way to restore a tired interior. 

Similarly we are happy to make bespoke additional items to match your choice of upholstery - map cases, tool rolls, key fobs, even holdalls can all be made to your requirements. And we manufacture our own period rally and Zagato-style seats to be trimmed according to your preference.
