Hi there,

I recently acquired two original Contour Clubman seats that I intend to fit into my MK2 Cooper S in place of the original recliners. They are in need of restoration so I have been searching the internet looking for the correct cloth for them. The black and "beta" cloth that later versions were upholstered in seems to be readily available albeit pricey at £90 a metre! However my seats are upholstered in a dark charcoal grey cloth with a different weave pattern that I would like to source, if possible.

I have seen a recently restored Contour Clubman and matching recliner here in Northern Ireland that had been sent over to a guy in England who had restored them beautifully. They had been reupholstered in the type of cloth that I am looking for, so it must be available somewhere. The person who owned them said, I think, that they had been restored by a Gareth ??.

There is a firm that has a website selling Contour Clubman seats and remanufatured Escort interior trim but their response to my enquiry has been less than satisfactory which, from reading reviews on the internet, seems to be the way they do business.

Therefore does anyone know of a supplier of the correct type of cloth for my seats?


Kind regards

Robert Holmes

If they were done by Gareth, I assume you mean Gareth Richards. Sadly Gareth is no longer contactable or taking on any work whatsoever.

Mark, thank you for your reply. Yes, Gareth Richards was the name. That is a shame that he is no longer contactable as he was able to get his hands on the correct charcoal grey, pre beta cloth, trim that I am looking for. Hopefully someone on here will know who supplied him.


Kind regards

Robert Holmes
