Anyone have any experience with Rimmer Brothers

Rimmer Brothers? I have a customer who would like to refurbish the interior of his Rangie, and Rimmer offers carpet and seat leather sets.
I was wondering if anyone had an opinion of materials quality and fit?
Thanks!
Trevor

Bought lots of stuff from Rimmer. They sell the full range of parts from Chinese knock-offs to genuine in order to please all tastes and budgets (and for those times when only one supplier is available). If you call them they'll tell you more about any particular item. Unlike lots of British places, they ship quick, communicate well by phone and email, and are there year in and year out.

Thanks Jim, good to know. Anyone have any experience specifically with their carpet and seat kits?

I recall Doug aka Roving Beetle got a set of leather recovers from the UK but not sure if it was from Rimmer Bros. Might try reaching out to him.

Yknow the carpets are mohair not nylon. The seats are Connolly leather. You cannot buy either of those any more. I would suggest that the carpets come out and get a full and thorough cleaning. Unless they are full of holes reuse them.
The leather can be reconollized. Look at leatherique.com for restoration products.
