My Ascona A


Recommended Posts


At least i found this forum, where maybe i could get some help. :)

i have ascona (1972) by accident i got that car and now i have to take care of it. some things i do by myself, mostly body works. also i will try to sew seat covers.

did anybody tried to sew them? maybe have project or something to help, or maybe they are simmilar to some new car seats.

i hope next summer we will be on a road

Welcome to the forum fear , the easiest way to recover the seats if you want a factory look is to remove the existing covers & dismantle them to make template pattern's from. you can reuse some of the bits but you will really want to use an industrial sewing machine but you can get by with a good domestic one but it will be a little more difficult & may struggle with the thicker area's & some plastics & pipeing.

alternatively any seat will fit if you are willing to make it fit.

hope thats of some help :)
