Wanted :SE5 seat in good order, or SE5a seat for recovering

Post by AJL Electronics » Sat Mar 09, 2019 10:36 am

Anyone got a decent SE5 Driver's seat in black please? This can be identified by stitched flutes rather than heat welded. Otherwise one needing a retrim would be acceptable as would an SE5a seat in that case.

Also need some early black carpet pieces, thin hessian backed as OEM SE5.

There is no point trying to teach a pig to sing. It doesn't work and it annoys the pig.

It is for a customer's car, to replace a damaged seat so it has to be an original. Luke seems to think he might be able to assist, just had a PM from him so here's hoping.

As an aside, the customer was horrified when I showed him how the seats are actually mounted in a 5! Given time I may design a frame that mounts to the middle outrigger on the 5 series.

Sometimes you just have to think that the original is not an option and a alternative is the only way to go - with a high back safer and more comfortable - good luck with your search.
