Obviously there was no way I could repair that foam 🤣 so I had to use the foams provided.

I am yet to find any aftermarket foam kits that fit perfectly without modification

Hopefully you can see by these pics just how far out the foams were. It's a lot of work to get these to fit. Lots of small cuts and checking then checking again

Hoping to get the chair done this week and pick up some of the jensen bits so I can get a start on that.

Hope you've enjoyed this week's instalment. I feel like I've gone quite indepth this week. Probably because I'm trying to make up for no post last week 🤣

Until next time

I've been in London this weekend for a fancy do! Nothing work related but it was lovely.

I got the chair done. Super happy with how it came out, I even lined up the piping!

I couldn't believe how grubby it was! When it was all finished, I put some beeswax polish on it.

can't believe its sunday afternoon already! i have had a very busy week, so lets start at the beginning

Monday morning, i decide to strip down the first jensen seat. i knew i needed to order foam for it, but i didn;t know which one until i opened up the seat.

so i find out what i need and long story short there is currently a foam shortage due to a chemical spill in the factory for the chemicals that are needed to make foam! managed to get some ordered eventually.

so i decide to start on the dash board instead. i strip the old cover off and notice some dodgy loose screws underneath, so i think to myself i can't wrap it until i speak to the client about those screws. i then decide to place the leather over the top, just to see how it will look. as you can see, you can notice the screws

so one of my trimmer friends says to me that i need to re foam the top. this means more foam being ordered.

i decide that i may as well start on the centre console first thing in the morning while i wait for the foam to arrive.

so the next day i start on the centre console. my brief was to replace the top and clean up everything else.

what i wasn't expecting was the old foam to be sooo hard i had to chisel it off with a screwdriver and hammer! this took a stupid amount of time to do! lol!
