It might help if you add your area location, if you live in Cornwall a recommendation from Aberdeen would be of no help, and vice versa.

I know of a couple who I would recommend near to us in the Somerset/Devon area. But it depends where you are?

I'm beginning to give up on pointing out the obvious.

I know a chap in the South Cheshire area, he retrimmed my Firenza seat using old material from a rear seat because the cloth isn't available, and did a very good job of it.

I can see the obvious Rick, but, not everyone looks left, they just read the post, if it is in the title that also saves time and might activate a local to help. Maybe I'm being pedantic, but a small thing can make a request more effective.

I must admit I read the post and replied whilst looking on my small mobile screen, I didnt look at even who posted it, just read the post.

It just seemed the logical thing to include in the post itself, and/or the title, like you say, I wasn't even thinking of the "Location" on the lhs.

I've just had a couple of Riley seats repaired by South West Auto Trimmers in Calne, Wiltshire. Timelines drifted a bit, but other than that good value and retained patina. Worth being specific about what you're trying to achieve.
