Can anyone recommend a leather trimmer in the herts, bucks area.

Not in the area you want , but in my opinion you cannot do better than Southbound Motor Trimmers in Hampshire .
Well worth the trip if you expect the best in workmanship and quality .

Try Maurice McDonald of M&M Trimming Co in Watford.


My mate has a garage that restores cars and he swears by this guy. I took the 993 up there and he had a Ferrari and a Porsche in his (tiny) workshop.

Oh well , it would be worth the wait . I took my seats to a local BMW 'specialist' and I would give them 7/10 . To the non fussy owner they generally look OK but when you look under the seats at the way things have been finished , there was no attention to detail as on he original Porsche seats .
When I went to Southbound for a small job which was carried out with expertise and friendliness while I waited I was told the wrong leather had been used on my sets and it would scuff , sure enough after little use the seats have scuff marks . When a little fault was found in another job they did for me they couldn't do enough to put it right and discounted the next job heavily!
