Are you in the UK?-apparently they have people who specialize in that--Why would you want to put P38 seats in a Classic? The Classic seats are very comfortable, and seem to wear better than the P38 seats. Not sure if the fit is the same, but its very likely the electrics are not. P38 seat has power lumbar, memory settings, power headrests--all things not found on the classic. (Late Classics had memory but settings were stored within the switch not a separate computer--i.e. wiring not the same) My 92 Classic has nice gray leather seats, heated and powered. Very comfortable, and with less wear on them then my 95 P38.
Is wear the reason you want them redone?
replacing upholstery totally depends on materials you select and the shop. I got a quote at 1500 for totally replacing the leather seating surfaces on front and rear seats. I think vynil was going to be about 1000. you need to drive to an automotive upholstery store and let them quote for you.
I am in the US - DC area. It is wear - just bought this 94 Classic SWB - very nice, but the seats are near the end of their time frame. I have a line on some reasonable P38 seats in great condition - so I wondered if there was any chance they would drop into the existing space, rails, etc.
You know one thing i forgot about my old RR is that i don't fit in it very well into these cars.. I am kinda long in the body, and my hair is always touching the headliner.. Has anyone lowered thier seat??
I am tired of moving my head over to the sunroof..
I share the problem of the classic seats in my 91 classic. The bases are too short for my 6'3" frame, but I just love the seats in my P38 HSE. I have just acquired a set of seats from a wrecked P38 and intend to replace those in the Classic with them if I can work out the electrics OR convert them to manual adjustment. (My old 74 2 door has seats from a Honda Prelude - swine of a job fitting them, but very comfortable.
I am considering the same thing as I too am having the same problem with my '93 r/r. I was thinking of using the seat frame from a disco with manual seats. havent gotten around to specking out the measurments yet, just a thought.
