Vintage Classics Coachtrimming in West Sussex

Originality is key when owning and restoring a motor car.  As renowned classic coach trimmers we use traditional methods of coachtrimming in all our full restorations, using wadding to fill fluted sections of seats, horsehair and springs to build and support giving seating that authentic finish. We also work to source materials dependant on the application and to customers own specification.

Carpets are cut bespoke to each car, then edged in leather on the sewing machine for a perfect fit and finish.

Hoods and weather equipment such as tonneau covers and hood bags are tailored to each car specifically to ensure fit and functionality.

We offer our vintage and classic coach trimmers services nationwide including West Sussex, Berkshire and the home counties. We also offer an international trimming service, anywhere in the world. Please contact us for availability early to take advantage of our classic coach  trimmers services.
