Covers a wide range of vehicles. Techniques can be applied to virtually all makes and models, pre-war and post-war.

The home restoration of car seats, carpets, trim and headlinings has largely been regarded as a no-go area by most DIY vehicle enthusiasts. The main reason has probably been a lack of knowledge and therefore confidence, rather than the absence of any desire to carry out such work.

The practical and illustrated step-by-step advice in this book — though aimed primarily at owners of classic cars — provides the "tricks of the trade" and the know-how to enable the interior of a car of any age to be renovated successfully.

Contents include:

  • Cleaning and restoration techniques for renovating soiled but sound interiors
  • How to strip a car interior for complete renovation
  • Clear guidelines for dismantling, repairing and re-upholstering seats
  • The "secrets" of producing new headlinings
  • The making and fitting of new carpets, and the fabrication of replacement trim panels
  • How to make new soft-tops and install a sun roof
  • Useful contact names and addresses
The author is a long-established motoring writer with many books to his credit and is a regular contributor to the practical and classic motoring press. Here, he removes the mystique and puts car interior renovation well within the scope of the DIY vehicle restorer.
