SEAT UPHOLSTERY KITS
----------------------------------------------------------------

Upholstery FAQs - Material Sample Colors

Porsche 356 models came with vinyl or cloth upholstery as standard. Leather was an option but only for the seats. Due to the increasing value of older models combined with the rich look, feel & smell of genuine leather, many restorers prefer to upgrade the entire interior of the 356 to all leather. Porsche rarely perforates leather seat inserts, while vinyl seats mostly had embossings. We offer a variety of leather colors that are a very close match to the original Porsche 356 colors. You may choose plain or perforated for leather and plain or embossed (black only) for vinyl.

Seat Rebuild Service: We can restore your seats into brand new condition whatever the level of rebuild it needs. Services available include basic cover install, rebuild and re-chrome of seat hardware, sandblast repair & paint of seat frames, and seat pad/backrest rebuild kit installation.

If you want something unique, we also offer Sheepskin Seat Covers!

CARPET SETS & RUBBER MATS
----------------------------------------------------------------

Carpet FAQs - Material Sample Colors

All models of the Porsche 356 line had Squareweave carpeting and rubber mats on the front floors and transmission tunnel. Our carpet sets only include the areas originally carpeted and does not include the areas originally covered by rubber mats. If you wish to have that full carpet feel like most modern cars, you have to order both the carpet set and the carpet supplement. The carpet supplement replaces with carpet the areas originally covered by rubber mats. All carpet sets can be made with either the original Squareweave or the much cheaper Domestic Loop.

All 356 models originally had a mixture of rubber mats and carpet. These mats are exact reproductions of the original mats. They are not included with the carpet set. We only have the pattern for LHD cars. The only difference between LHD and RHD models is the location of the holes for the pedals.
