    Default Looking for a seat in the UK - new / used

    Used would be best, I could even try to do up a shappy one - it would be a new experience mind you :-)

    Failing a used item, could anyone please recommend a supplier for a new seat unit ? I've researched people such as Recambia Weiss (sp) and just don't get the feeling of it being a quality item.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer, Gren

    Thanks, for the pointer.

    I should have made it clear that I was after the fiberglass part more than the cushions.

    What shape unit do you want, the early 851 or later 888?

    Hi Mr R, and Dudlington - sorry for my ambiguity; I'm actualy after both realy.

    For one project I need a complete 900 SL rear tail unit + pads.

    And for another I'd like a complete 851 setup.

    Buying new is not an option I want to follow due to costs mostly.
    I'd happily repair damaged units if they were available too.

    As you're prepared to sort out a damaged 2nd hand item.
    Why not buy the Recambia Weiss unit/s and sort that/them out/strengthen them at the weak points?
    That's what I'd do.
    Quite a few forum members have fitted Recambia Weiss kit and are quite happy with it.
    I spent that little bit extra and bought top quality QB Carbon kit and still had to sort it out before getting it painted.
