Mk2 black vinyl

Post by johnv »

Looking for a source of the black vinyl used on mk2 seats, or something close, to repair the bolsters on a recliner. (I don't want to go down the Newton route if I can avoid it, I'd rather get this one repaired, even if the match isn't perfect) Thanks

No I have not used any of these companies.

The other thing you could try is find a local car trimmer and see what they can find you.

I have got some original Mk2 recliner seat covers - they were replaced on my car as these covers had a few rips in them. They might be suitable for what you want as parts of them are OK. I'll dig them out from the garage and have a look if they would be of interest to you.

I have got an old black Mk2 recliner cover much the same, came off a recliner I re covered with a Newton kit. I haven’t seen it for a while but am happy to dig it out if necessary. PM me if you are interested and I will dig it out an see what condition it is in.

Regards

Was the vinyl used on the original optional factory recliners the same vinyl used on the rear seat?
