1982 635 csi seat resto

Post by station105 » Thu Feb 15, 2018 1:47 am

car is in australia, have owned it for 25 years and used it until 5 years ago. its a long story.
car has been sitting for 5 years in the sun at my sons house, these pics are 5 years old so condition is a lot worse, recently retired and now time to get it back and get it back on the road, lots to do. Starting with the interior, that beautiful dash in the pic is no longer like that, totally cracked with at least 10 to 15 large cracks, need a new right hand dash if anyone has got one to sell, what do i do with the seats, fully re-upholster?, i need info from you guys on how to repair them, stitching on the rear buckets has torn thru' the leather also, once the inside is complete i will move on to the rest of the car, refurb the brakes and parts of the suspension, luckily the engine is okay, then paint the car in its original colour, pics of the car again was 5 years ago,
hope you guys can help me.

regards

richard

Hi Richard
Check out this ebay post for seats. Joe is in Sydney and might be able to help you out with a dashboard, he wrecks E24s.

You have the same interior as me but mines black.

The rear and passenger seats (which appear not to be ripped) can be cleaned, softened, recoloured and sealed - I use products from these guys in the UK; https://www.furnitureclinic.co.uk/?gcli ... MYEALw_wcB.

I've done quite few seemingly beyond repair interiors this way with amazing results - this was my Lagonda Rapide interior before and after:

I think your drivers seat needs recovering and then colour matching in...
