    BT7 interior purchase

    i am thinking i will redo my interior this fall and have started looking at options and prices. my current interior is beige so i am looking to go with something close to that. ideally i can find something very close in color so i do not have to redo my dash. not that i can't but i like the color it is.

    my first two options have been two places that show tan colors.

    Sports and Classics: their covers and trim parts are made by Buckingham Classic Interiors. their leather seats are fronts only with the rest being vinyl.

    Moss: they show both leather and vinyl but i do not know where they are made. they say their own shop??? also don't know if their leather parts are totally leather. sending them a note to find out.

    just wondered what you all have found.
    has anyone used either of these and what did they think?
    any other suggestions, keeping in mind color?

    i will also be looking for any videos or information i can find on installation. (mainly seats)

    Thanks

    Give John Skinner in England. They can provide samples of upholstery and carpet in about any color you want. I have never used them but others reports the quality is top rate.

    For the Moss leather seats, only the seating faces you touch are leather, which is original. Their colors are limited. A green Healey should have light grey leather with green piping. I have the Moss interior in black and the quality is satisfactory, but if I were to redo it, I would go with Skinner.
