Interior trimming / soft top replacement

PostPost by: Maulden7 » Fri Mar 07, 2014 5:33 pm

If anybody wants to speak to a really good & reasonably priced car trimmer & soft top maker in the UK, I can recommend Gary Creasey who is based in Wheathampstead, Hertfordshire.

He produced a beautiful hood in mohair for my S2 Elan, & at a cost somewhat below what I expected, but his main work is with interior trimming.

This is where those mega bucks Ferrari's etc restoration projects get sent by the big restoration companies for all the interior trim replacement (& undoubtedly they mark up Gary's prices by a mega margin) When he was working on my hood, parked next to the Elan was a half million ? Ferrari, in for a total interior retrim!

Web site is http://www.hoodsandtrims.co.uk but Gary is a bit of luddite ITwise, so a phone call is best.

Thanks for this Dave, I always like to hear good feedback an this comes from someone who's the first to moan about bad service and charges. I'll add this to the recommended list. :wink:
