'89 Club Joker  - fabric on front and rear is OK, should clean up well, but foam is pretty bad, especially drivers seat. (ISRI Fronts)
What's everyone done, re-upholstered to a new looks, re-upholstered trying to re-create factory, managed to replace internals and re-use existing fabric (is that possible...?), any suggestions, recommended specialists or photos would be cool.

keen to get it nice for family practical use, certainly won;t be a show van but a decent look, finish and quality is what I'm ideally after .

Cheers

Same issue with my Club Joker front seats.
Fabric unfortunately wears quite badly and is no longer available. Cry
I have gone for front seat covers.
(can sort out a pic if it helps?)

Westtrading.nl do LOTS of reproduced fabrics.

For retrimming? TFI on Marsh Barton are very very good but you pay accordingly. Place in Starcross had a good name and sensible prices- can't remember name but can get it.

PLUSS/DDC on Marsh Barton...... Reasonable/cheapest but you'll be going back a few times to get it sorted.

If you are feeling brave, you can recover them yourself.  That's what I did...


Great instructions for getting them to pieces here: 


Good luck!

Don't think it's something I'll tackle myself, not brave enough for that!

Elvis, thanks for info, gonna go see TFI at some point and see if they can replace internals as fabric is fairly good condition, plus looked around and can't see reproduction of same fabric.

Will update this thread on outcome and pics in next few months.

Thanks  for help
