Honda Motorbike seat

Do you have a motorbike seat that needs some TLC? Have a look at this one we recently completed for one of our customers based in Wiltshire.

Jude originally got in contact as he was looking for a trusted upholstery company to reupholster his motorbike seat. He supplied us with an image of how he wanted the seat to look and we got to work.

We arranged for some free vinyl samples to be sent to his home address and he decided to use the Kayospruce – Nautolex in colour Black.  Jude wanted the ‘Honda’ logo added to the back of the seat.

We then upholstered the seat using the same vinyl and added a fluting design throughout the seat.

What do you think of the end result? Take a look at our pictures of it completed and fitted back onto the bike below.

Boat seating

We love when the weather gets a little bit warmer as we get to work on exciting projects like this one!

We recently upholstered the below boat seating using Kayospruce – Nautolex Vinyl Maritime in colour  Mystic White with contrasting panels using colours Laguna Green and Sport Purple which we think looks great and very eye catching! This vinyl is suitable for outdoor marine use so works perfectly on this boat seating

We replaced two of the base foams using a firm foam grade to give that added support when using the seating. We also replaced the grey trim with new giving the boat a fresh new look!

We are really pleased with the finished look and our customer is too, when they picked it up, he said that they were looking for the ‘wow’ factor and that he thought they really got it!

Do you have a boat that needs a new lease of life?

Motorhome seating

Take a look at this motorhome seating we recently upholstered for one of our customers!

Our customer came to us looking for the seating to be upholstered as they needed some TLC. We spent some time with our customer exploring the different fabric options and what they were looking for.

As the motorhome is in use a lot of the time, we suggested the Ross – Aquaclean range which is extremely hardwearing and any stain can be removed using only water! Our customer thought this was the perfect fabric and decided to use range Lynton in colour way Ocean.

Take a look at our below and after photos below:

Campervan Cab Seat Upholstery

What a way to bring the sunshine inside with these campervan cab seats!

The customer brought in their old plain cab seats as they want to give them a bit of life. And haven’t they just?

Using complementary fabric in the same colour way we have added interest to this campervan. Using Warwick Rhombus Electric on the centre panels, with Marco Tangerine on the sides and Cabro Graphite on the outside.

Boat Seating in Two Tone Vinyl

In preparation for warmer months, we helped transform this boat seating from old and worn to stylish and modern.

By swapping the black and white vinyl, it created a fresh design, with the contrast piping adding something extra special.

We’d love to give this boat a go on a hot summer’s day!

Here’s what the customer had to say:

They look great!

Vintage bus upholstery restoration project

We were asked to carry out full upholstery and restoration of seating on a vintage bus this one is a Daimler CVD6 with a Weymann body, new to Exeter Corporation, or the City of Exeter in 1949. It is fairly rare these days in that it has a Daimler engine. Only six of this type were built as supplied to Exeter and only two remain.

South West Upholstery stripped all seats back to the frames, carried out woodwork repairs and replaced wooden frames where required. We then cut and shaped new foams for all of the seating. Finally new upholstery was cut, sewn and fitted using a forest green faux leather with piping backs.

A challenging job but we love keeping history alive!

Military vehicle upholstery

We are used to odd projects so this was no different.

We were tasked to restore two army vehicle canvas canopies to glory using the original materials.

After careful planning, cutting and sewing we were able to keep the history alive and repair both canvas canopies on the trucks.

These are now being used in films so look out for them!

Motorhome upholstery in leather

This year old motorhome was upholstered in leather.

Our customer purchased their motorhome and didn’t like the cloth upholstery. They approached us to install new leather on all the seats, trimmed parts and supply curtains.

Over five days the motorhome was gutted and all the old fabrics removed. We then upholstered all of the seating with new leather as selected by our customer.

In all we undertook the following…

  • Front cab seats upholstered
  • Seating areas upholstered
  • New curtains supplied & fitted
  • All trimmed panels were covered in leather

This was completed over five days at our workshops.
