Seeking Input/Suggestions on Recaro Upholstery


Recommended Posts

Hello All,


I have my Recaro Rallye II seats sitting at an upholsterer (who has done a few sets before) and I'm having some difficulty pulling the trigger on what I want to do with them. I am doing blue velour carpet, white/Oyster leather door cards and white/oyster leather rear bench on my 76- pretty dang similar to the Clarion car. The seats are worth more on their own vs. being sold with my car (years away). Keeping my custom interior in mind and potential need for a separate sale lies my crisis. Although the marketability of the seats in the future is not my priority, it would be great to accomplish both.


My current plan is Tan Alcantara like the Recaro bucket attached here. My indecision is on the centers, my idea was to do Motorsport Stripes like I've seen on some Scheels- thoughts? With the stripes the centers would be a tan Alcantara matching the bolsters. I could do them entirely tan and they'd probably look nice too? The stripes or plain are about all I have for ideas so I'm open to yay/nays, sanity checks or suggestions. I considered Blue/Green Alpina stripes but I am trying to avoid Alpina nomenclature for this build.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
