Trimming

Trimming and all aspects of the restoration of the interior of the car is also part of Omicrons repertoire. A local trimmer who meets Aston Martin standards makes carpets, makes and fits headlinings, makes new convertible tops, tonneau covers and reupholsters door and trim panels and seats in cloth or fabric, vinyls or leather.

During this process we will often prepare and repair seat frames and hood rails as well as organising the rechroming, restoration, refurbishement, repair and repainting of other interior components, such as switches, steering wheels, other brightwork, instruments, radios, catches and so on.

Sometimes the existing leather is too good to retrim, but is tired looking or dirty. We have access to various leather treatments and cleaners which can transform tired but otherwise sound leather into something much more attractive.

Flaminia Touring Convertible Hood

We were asked to make a new hood for the owner of this Flaminia Touring Convertible. The owner wanted the hood to be this colour to match other cars in his collection.

Some carpet needed to be replaced, and seat belts, in matching red colour, were also made and fitted.

Flaminia Pininfarina Coupe Rally Car

This car was being built for long distance road rally events. The standard rear seat was carefully removed and a roll cage fitted. The bare area left behind was trimmed in a hard wearing material to make it neat and tidy, and cargo netting was also fitted to keep hand luggage under control. When the car was sold, the new owner wanted is was removed and the rear seats were re-fitted.
