AH Spares - looking for interior feedback/photos

Has anyone installed the interior from AH Spares? They seem to have the correct mix of carpet/vinyl for the interior panels and area behind the seats.

I'd love to see some clear photos of the red and blue which show the actual color of the vinyl material.

Thanks, Jim

Thanks, Ray. I went through all your restoration photos - beautiful job. There are quite a few I saved which show details I had questions about. Plus, the interior does look good.

I did my seats with materials from AH Spares - vinyl, foam, padding, clips everything. Worked out well.

Get a shipping price from them BEFORE you agree to buy. It is very expensive, I was able to negoatiate about $70 of the initial shipping away.

With shipping, their prices are close to but less than Moss, VB, ect and they had everything I needed including extra vinyl for the dash and door pockets.

I also did my seats with their seat kits. Came out fine. Also bought some matching vinyl material, made the panels from masonite using patterns that I seem to remember I got from Ray (not sure) and they are coming along fine. Not done yet.

I used their seat covers and foams on my MK2 Sprite (Bugeye style seats).
Very good material and workmanship.
This was when the pound was about $1.35 and shipping way more reasonable.
Last time I got a quote from them to ship something it was just plain crazy so I did not order.

I ordered their leather seat covers in black. Excellent
covers. Look fantastic and feel nice. They were the only supplier I found for black with black piping.
I'm a happy camper with everything I've ordered from AHSpares.

I can't say enough good about AHSpares.
I recently ordered carpet sets for the Sprite on-line.
I've been having a few computer problems lately.
I didn't get a confirmation....so...I ordered the set again.
No confirmation.
Oh well....I figured I'd try again later.
Well....this morning at the office I get a call from across the pond.
Seems they noticed I had ordered two sets and just wanted to confirm I wanted both sets.
The confirmation e-mails back to me had been bounced back to
them as un-deliverable.
How nice. Lovely lady (I'm a sucker for the accent) was most helpful.
Canceled the extra set and shipped the stuff today.
Customer service is the backbone of any business and it seems they get it.
:thumbsup:

Based on all the positive comments about AH Spares I placed an order with them last week. They replied with a shipping estimate within a day of my request.

Shipping via DHL was estimated at 99GBP ($155+/-) for the following: seat covers, side panel set, rear trunk set, door panels, door draft excluders, check straps, some miscl fasteners and a convertible top. I thought the shipping was actually quite reasonable given the items I was ordering. Total cost for everything including shipping is considerably less than Moss or VB.

A followup: AH Spares held my shipment until a couple of out of stock items arrived, as I had requested. They shipped on Thursday 6/21 via DHL; the package arrived at my door on Friday 6/22! Shipping was 70GBP, less than what was quoted.

Everything I received is 1st class quality. They are a great vendor.
