SE5/5a seats wanted

I'm looking for a pair of se5/5a front seats, ideally black but would also consider tan ones, assuming new covers are a sensible price.

Seat and covers are almost impossible to find - which is why though kinds are fitted, MX5 seats are one of the favourites.

Covers are available off the shelf - look for Sunbeam Alpine. "Sensible price" is another discussion :D

Sensible price appears to not differ too much to the full rebuild and recover for my coupe seats tbh
I'll have a pair of tan in a while just need to recolour my XJ-S ones first before fitting them


SE4c rebuilding. SE5a similar it seems!

Hi, Andy I have a pair of front seats from a 5a in reasonable condition there is a couple of splits at stitching but should be an easy repair.the runners had been cut by some one in the past. If they are any good to you £70 posted for the pair. Sorry but the postage costs are fairly high.
