Craig’s Aston Martin DB9 is set to get some new seats as the trim shop begin on the task of freshening up the interior. Kath began by carefully removing the covers, un-cliping the handle mechanisms and then removing the air bag which had been previously disabled by Aston Martin themselves. Kath then removed the retainers out from the inside of the metal frame and take out the centre piece which was attached with Velcro. Once the squab was removed, she could then remove the switches at the base of the seat. Once this was done, she could untie the cable tires and gently pull the cover out from around the wires. The seats contain small retainers to hold the cover on as well as strips of velcro, such as down the centre. Kath then removed the heated panels from the base and squab and the seat belt clip cover.
With all the external pieces now removed, Kath can begin the same process on the other seat and recover them both.
Craig popped over to the Statton Motor Company to disconnect the air bags in the seats of his Aston Martin DB9 ready for the seats to be retrimmed but whilst he was there he saw this DB2/4, identical to the one we’ve got in, so he took the chance to take some photos as reference for when we rebuild ours.
Craig, Director here at Bridge Classic Cars, has recently purchased this gorgeous V12 Aston Martin DB9. In need of a service and keen to preserve it’s full main dealer history, we sent our DB9 over to Nick and Kevin at Stratstone Motor Company of Long Stratton.
The customer service received was a breath of fresh air. Knowledgeable, friendly and efficient, it’s a pleasure to have delft with both Nick, (Service Executive) and Kevin, (General Sales Manager). They were familiar with Bridge Classic Cars as a brand and have been keeping tabs on our Classic Car Competitions.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stratton Motor Company to any of our clients for Lotus’ or Aston Martin’s.
Craig has recently purchased a new car which we’re sorry to say isn’t our next competition car. This beautiful modern Aston will be Craig’s new everyday car which will bring a dash of Aston class to our staff car park! Its come all the way from Southampton and was collected at the same time we dropped our Corvette off with its new owner. We love it when a plan comes together – two new happy owners in one day.
We expect to be doing a few touch ups on it however its not in need of anything major. The first step is a thorough service.
