Laser Seat/ interior Fabric Production

Post by jrooney1991 » Fri Apr 12, 2019 4:18 pm

Afternoon all!

Just putting the feelers out there, I have been talking to a company that apparently can replicate the laser Seat Fabric but they have to do a chunk of fabric or its prohibitively expensive!!

Would people be interested in this? Be great to try and work with the Capri club or others to produce replacement seat outers (like a few other classics have) but I'm probably dreaming out of my station there!!

I have a pretty decent full laser interior tucked away in the garage rafters. Don't want to split it but might sell the whole lot.

Skipped loads myself and seen others chucking away laser seats and door cards back in the day. No-one wanted them. Nowadays gen u win laser interior probably need a mortgage to buy.

Sometimes glad I don't play the capri game anymore

Hi Mike. Great to hear from you. Hope all is good :)
Wow ! Great you can still get original laser material. Did not know this was still possible. Can I just ask you please whether you can get Grey strobe material like in this pic ??? Think its called grey/silver ???

Hi,

I see Mike can get material so don't know if that is a cheaper option for you but I'm looking at £180

Hi Nick,

Do you want the rear seat base that I've got in that material?

Thanks Peter,

I'm going to see what Mike can do as it would be great to preserve my seats rather than see another set lost. However that's a pretty keen price so I'll let you know!

Hey Peter.

Thanks very much mate :) but its really the two front seats that i was looking at restoring as they have faded compared to the back seat and door cards. They have not faded that bad but at some stage i want to do something with them as i want to keep them being full 'S' seats.

Having said this...... :x ....the springs in my back seats do seem very 'soft' when i sit on them. Not sure if the springs are just worn or how firm they should actually be but i do sink right into them ?? If your seat base is a better one with good firmer springs and good materisl then yep l i would be intetested to buy it from you mate.

Dont suppose you have a picture by any chance Peter...or better still can you do a you tube video of you sitting on it so i can see how firm your rear springs are please :shock: :lol: :lol:

Only joking fella. Thank you very much for thinking of me. Really appreciate it.

All the best mate

Ok a bit of miss communication, I thought it was the laser interior cloth not the late S type called laser. I can get the plane cloth but the stripe has since run out.

Hi Mike. No miss communication mate. I just hijacked this thread to ask you about the availabilty of the strobe material. Sorry for the confusion !! The original poster "jrooney1991"was indeed asking you about the original laser material which you say you can still get. I just wanted to know if the strobe material was also still available. Shame its not. I will keep looking as its only the front seats I would need doing. Thanks Mike

Hi Mike,

I'm the original poster and am interested in getting my front laser seats done. I presume you are the man that can? Be great to get the car properly sorted and looking factory fresh. I've got a spare rear seat squab to nick material from as well if necessary and I can transport them to wherever you are?

Turbo-Mike, The drivers bolster on my laser is worn, just a ball park figure but how much would I be looking at to get a replacement panel ?
