Hi

Can anyone recommend a company to properly restored my front seats.. I have the perforated finish not the ruffled leather.. The colour is Savannah beige which seems to wear quite badly.. The drivers seat is showing signs of wear to the bolster and seat base.. loss of colour and some cracking.. I don’t fancy attempting the job myself as I would hate to do more harm than good.. l’m looking for a professional with experience with these seats..

Any help much appreciated

You could try these guys https://www.harryfraservehicleupholstery.com/ based at Bicester Heritage. Not used them, but enquired about restoring a steering wheel and seen his workshop.

Much what you say can be restored yourself with a quality leather cleaner and restorer. Basically need to feed the leather with several applications of restorer, ideally in a warm cabin. Leather can be colour matched with a suitable dye and even filled.

My 944 with linen leather was fully restored using this method and helped the p/x with the dealer.

There is an upholsterer on the main Worcester to Hereford road, can't think of the name but he does automotive and domestic, may be worth a quick visit.
He's a few miles out of Hereford on the right.
Sorry I can't be more precise.
