Update – Retail Customers
Following on from our message in May – we thank you for your on-going patience whilst we worked through our backorders. You will be pleased to know that we have made significant progress – and whilst we are still working through some backorders – we aim to be accepting all new retail orders again from the week commencing the 6th September 2021.
Going forward – to avoid disappointment with your restoration – we recommend that you place your order in plenty of time.
We encourage all new customers who are happy to wait to enquire using our website as follows:
Austin Healey & Triumph TR Customers – browse our extensive product library for details and pricing – selecting the products you are considering using our unique “Build a Quote” system. Once submitted, our experienced sales team can review our choices and get back in touch to discuss the finer details and send you material samples based on your choices.
Jaguar & MGA Customers – find lots of useful information and photos about the products we can offer for your restoration on the individual Model Pages for each marque/model. At the bottom of these model pages, you will find a Contact Form specific to your car – which you can fill in and submit with your restoration requirements – and one of our experienced sales team will formulate a Quote for you to get the ball rolling.
Note that all further information related to your enquiry will be processed and responded to after the 6th September 2021.
Photos & images viewed on screen can be misleading. They should only be used as a basic representation of colour & texture.
The actual appearance may vary. For this reason, we strongly recommend requesting samples for final colour confirmation.
All of our materials & colours can be subject to batch shade variations. Although minimal in most cases, to help avoid this, we always recommend purchasing similar material interior trim items at the same time so that they are made from the same batch in our workshop.
If you are purchasing leather hides, or material by the metre for use across a project, we also recommend you order the entire quantity of material you need at the same time so that we can ensure batch colour consistency.
