Are there any places which sell seat cover kits in the standard nylon cord?
Thanks

They only do the headlining (which is a good thing in itself)

James 467 has on behalf of the club been researching what is available; the OE material is not, nor does anyone currently replicate seat covers unless you ask an automotive upholsterer to do so specifically.

James came very close with a corduroy type material, but I believe the supplier of the sample is now no longer trading. I expect he'll be along in a while to update us...

Yes, basically what Alun said.

I have been searching for the correct material match, it's harder than it sounds! I did find a 99% match but as Alun said I found out that the supplier went bust when I tried to contact them about different colours.

I am still searching though.

So if you find another supplier don't try to ask them about colours.... we don't want them to go bust too!

My MGB GT has black cloth seats which are not exact but very similar to my Dolomite. They do them in black, navy and autumn leaf. So I assume whoever makes the MGB seat covers should be able to make Dolly seat covers. Probably all about numbers. My son is using the MG , when I see him I will take some photos and post them.
