hi everyone,

hello from Norway! Despite lurking around for ages I never came around to post anything here, until now. I am the happy owner of an 1989 4 door Classic, bought back in 2004.

One of the first major upgrades was to change the cloth seats for a nice grey leather interior from a 95 Soft Dash. Later on, the car got its 2.4 VM diesel replaced by a 300 TDI complete with a LT 230 transfer box which has served it well. No longer my daily driver, it still hangs around, and I am currently doing a refit - new springs, dampers, tie rods, brakes, timing belt, chrome bumpers, new wheels as well as attending the numerous small niggles which tend to add up over time, and here i need help!

- Where can I get a new seat foam for the base of the drivers seat ? Its quite saggy. I asked Exmoor trim whether a foam from a Discovery 1 would fit, but they couldn't confirm. Does anybody here know where or what kind of foam to source ? For a soft dash leather seat that is.

Thanks in advance :)

Exmoor Trim specialise in Series Land Rovers and Defenders. Nationwide Trim are Range Rover trim specialists, so I'd try them. Rimmer Bros have a lot of the old genuine stock, so are also worth a try.

Exmoor does only have for the Disco1 and Disco2, and were not able to confirm any similarities with the RRC soft dash, although late Disco1 leather seats look a lot alike.. Nationwide trim is worth a try, had forgotten about them :)

there's quite a few people breaking land rover classics in the UK. pm me your email and i'll dig one out for you
Thanks, but hoping for any of them to break a low mileage seat and take the foam out before shipping may be to much to ask..

You could peel the seat cover off access teh foam and have a local supplier cut foam to suit where it is needed.

Looks like I'll have to do exactly that - dismantle the seat and rebuild the foam myself. Nationwide trim has not answered my request. Extensive searching at least led me to the part number - MXC3332 for the bottom seat foam. Of course no where to be found. Hello little DIY project :)
