St Tropez front seats wanted

Post by Des Smith »

I was thinking about repairing/recovering a damaged driver's seat for my St Tropez but wondered if there is a decent passenger seat kicking around that I could use instead? The existing one has a tear in the fabric which I have hand-stitched but it doesn't look great. In addition, the sponge foam is slowly disintegrating and as it is bonded to the upholstery, so the repair and recover option is likely to be a lot more expensive than sourcing a passenger seat from an expired St Tropez. Anyone know of one that is looking for a new home?

I expect this is likely to produce a big yawning silence but you never know!

I've got no idea what a St Tropez seat looks like (or a St Tropez BX for that mater - although I do know what St Tropez itself looks like....).
Got a pic of the interior? Never know what might be lurking in a scrappy near here.

I knew that would be a question and trawled my old pics for an interior shot. No luck! It's a grey-blue background with a blue and white check insert into the seat and back panel.

Here you go Des, I know it maybe not the best of photos but I found it in one of the BULLWINKLES thread as I remember that they had one available for spares, but I'm fairly sure by now it will be in your local 'Currys' outlet in the 'White Goods section' rather than a 'White BX' :lol:

However you may be lucky, if indeed it was saved and broken up for spares ?

But ive agreed a price for the StTropez and will be rescuing it next week so fingers crossed.Its too far gone i think for a resto but will im sure yield many a useful bit.
Richard.
Send Richard a PM to check if indeed he may have what your looking for :wink:

Good luck !

You may find the BX "Cottage" special edition has the same interior?

I had a feeling it was used elsewhere. 'Cottage' was a French special, wasn't it? That might mean a LHD passenger seat would be a good donor seat for a RHD driver's seat. Now where might I find one of those....?

A handy excuse for a trip over methinks! I'm over here at the moment and hoping to find a scrapyard - no joy at present though. Plus it's unlikely that we can bring a seat back with us, but I'll keep a look out...

Mat, could you not just remove the seat cover, that way any old seat in the uk can be used to replace the existing one if its too far gone to be mended & then the cloth can just be put onto the replacment :) Or is it impossible to remove the seat covers?

Tim, are all the Leader models which were marketed in the UK the same (i.e. MK1 and MK2), as they had the same 'Tartan/Check' middle sections but perhaps the edges/side bolster material is more like a Denim and a 'Coarse Grey Stitching' material looking at the photo below (Which was Richards MK1) rather than a Brushed Nylon/Velour as fitted in the St. Tropez models ?

:idea: For Des, organise a beers beers beers weekend with the lads in Amsterdam and if your still sober enough perhaps see if there's any 'Deaville' models lying about in a local breakers yard like the Dutch members below ?

Something that would come close to this should be nice. Or just black.
The reason why I would like a chair from the UK is exactly like toddao mentioned
toddao: Also for you the Uk passenger seat would be your driver's seat! You're more likely to find one in better condition.
I think one seat will do. :D
