    Seats

    Has anybody done a complete retrim of seats before, like take all the material off and put new stuff back?

    My dad has a cavalier which is being scraped but has a couple of nice buckets in the front, which i guess would fit the astra, not much bigger im guessing?

    Im not the best with a needle and string but my mum is, so if it isnt too hard im sure we could manage lol

    Never had a re-trim done personally but been pricing a complete leather re-trim up for the mighty astra.

    I would get it done professionally though. You'd probably been fine if you got the original patterns and stuff but not too sure about stitching and fitting around the seat!

    Only thing is a professional job will set you back from around £300-£500. Have you thought about getting an interior off ebay or a cavalier or vectra interior (another thing i have looked into), there's a few AOC members who have changed their entire seats for a seat with better trim.

    Fit the cavalier seats to the Astra subframes, then bolt them in the car.

    Funnily enough, did you try your local Vauxhall dealer or maybe a scrappy?
