    I have heard good reports of Tappers. We spoke to them at the NEC show last October and asked about possible recovering in future. They seemed to be a nice crowd and knowledgable.

    Tappers came to us here today and took away all our upholstery, including the front seats, and will bring them back next week, fully re-upholstered. :BigGrin:

    We had our old Autosleeper front seats re-upholstered at a place at Gotham, Nottingham, if interested I could find the phone number for you, does a really good job.

    If you do decide to get the seats refurbished try to refrain from 'blowing off' whilst driving in future, this may help stopping the foam cushions from disintegrating.

    Tappers have asked me if we want the buttons on the upholstery. tbh I don't really know. They say that buttons are a bit 'traditional' which I think means a bit 'passe'. If we change our minds once the job has been done, it will only take half an hour to put the buttons in, but I'm left in a quandrary. Do I want the buttons or not? I suspect not.

    They also asked if we wanted the contrasting material on the knee support area and that sounded good so I concurred.

    But about the buttons. What do you think? :BigGrin::BigGrin:
