Seat Restoration

Proper seat restoration is something you really have to take your time with.

Wolfsburg West
sells all the OEM fitting goodies, all the way down to correct color frame paint! Be careful with that old horse hair. I ended up in the hospital after having an allergic reaction to it. NO JOKE!

Restoring your seats for the first time? Contact me and I can help walk you through it!

Here is a visual walkthrough of some of the process:

Hi Eric, really nice job on those seats! I've got a '67 beetle but was going to get covers for the seats, after seeing your seats my mind is now changed! Regards

Under the seat on the adjustment lever, (i have a '71 std) is there a spring or something that holds the lever down? i can't seem to find any info/parts on this and my lever jiggles upward as i drive until the seat unlatches and falls backwards. i have the seat tracks that are built into the floor pan and the plastic rail covers installed. what am i missing here?

Marc, Yes, there is a spring that holds the seats in place. If you've lost it Wolfsburg West should have the replacement.
