Check out ebay for ripped recaros? Message seller and ask for a strip of the material? Or scrapyard. As for foam jump on ebay and have a look. I would hazard a guess and say 30mm thick or there abouts would be enough

Post a wanted on here bud. Ask for a wrecked seat. I'm sure someone has one lying around somewhere! Good luck on your search. Only other thing is go to a fabric store and get some close samples and hold them up to your seats. Or just go for something a bit different. Like the material on alcantera seats. So that is is supposed to look different but still oem/ nice

I think it's kind of a suedey type material. It's a dark grey on the seats i've seen. Check out bigjim-85's build thread, think he used em at some point.

Blue black will be hard to get i would have thought
dont see the red or blue ones much.

I would defo try scrappys see if theres any golfs with sports/recaros which have had air bags deployed or are ripped on boster etc as you only need a relatively small area.

I had the bottom seat cover and there was plenty.



Sports cloth against me recaro.
