Original Tweed Fabric

Postby RS32k18 » Mon Jun 28, 2021 2:47 pm

I have a 1990 NA with the Dark Grey Tweed fabric interior. The Bolster on the Drivers Seat is worn from normal use over the last 30 years, looking to see if there is a good option to replace/restore the seat. Anything like this available, have done some web searches with no luck. Thanks for any help.

Hard to find that material. Most get new skins. I found a RHD that was parting out and I bought the left seat and swapped the covers over to mine. Cost be $75 bucks and a couple hours.

Got a picture of the tweed? I might have a small sheet of it, would need an upholstery guy to sew it in. I can have a look if you are interested.
Here is what it look like: Same as your???

My uncle might need a tweed fabric for the incoming Z32 project. His initial impression the passenger seat is repairable but the driver seat has a torn part. Will finish installing the shocks from 4Wheelonline onto the truck this week before we can take her in and fully inspect.
