Upholstery

Postby VWMartin » 27 May 2014, 19:05

Hi guys I've recently finished my vans interior and the only thing left is the flooring and getting the foam bed covered.

I've got the foam and I've got the material to cover it with but I don't have a clue what needs to be done so looking for anyone who may be able to do it...

Could anyone give any recommendations?

I've asked a well known camper company and they wanted £400 which I think is mental! Lol.

Any help would be great - thanks.

Martin.

Or just find someone locally or even within the family who can help. I just got a sewing machine and learnt - good skill to add to your bow.

I had mine made from Suzi's curtains and cushions. It was around £120 for the three covers, fire resistant material with zips so they can be washed. Nice snug fit, really tidy. Took about a week with delivery. She will do pretty much any colour you want. ImageImage got some spare material to cover the buddy seat too. We had our thermal lined curtains and matching curtains from her too.

Looking nice. Did you replace any of the foam seat pads?
