The Seat Surgeons propel footballer’s T6 Transporter into a premier league

We were pleased to propel the Volkswagen Transporter T6 of Leeds United (LUFC) footballer, Kemar Roofe, into a premier league by conducting a full interior re-trim.

The interior overhaul saw our surgeons dial up the stealth, and upholster the seats of the T6 in Muirhead premium black Grampian leather, incorporating a double diamond stitch. The patterns for which were created on our new CNC machine, specifically designed to precisely manufacture leather interiors for the Transporter.

To complement the black Grampian upholstery, the headlining, pillars and sun visors were also covered in black Alcantara. The sun visors were hand-stitched to achieve a premium finish.

Paul Hewitt, our Managing Director, commented: “Working with Kemar to transform the T6’s interior has been a pleasure. The team and I are delighted with the final result and believe that this bespoke leather & Alcantara combination has propelled the Transporter into a league of its own.

Roofe, added: “The Seat Surgeons have been a delight to work with. Paul and the team offered great support when finalising my design and ensured that the van is a luxurious and comfortable place to be. Thanks to their high attention to detail, the interior of the T6 looks and feels fantastic.

Kemar Roofe (7) has played striker and winger for Leeds United since 2016. Currently the club’s top goal scorer, the 26-year old holds an impressive career across clubs including West Bromwich Albion and Oxford United.

Tyson Fury’s Interiors

Back in December 2017 the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight champion Tyson Fury trusted us to upholster his brand new Land Rover Discovery in our finest Nappa leather. Nearly exactly a year later, he has called upon our team once again to upgrade his Land Rover Defender.

How it first happened:

What do you do when you need to find the perfect company to help you with something? Google it. That’s exactly what Tyson Fury did to find the right guys for this job. After having a look through our website and photos on social media the 6ft 9 boxer decided to call up our team. He was given a quote and discussed technicalities of the procedure in order to successfully execute the job. Shortly after that conversation, Tyson Fury dropped off his stylish white Land Rover Discovery which we stored safely in our on-site unit while the Nappa leather was cut, quilted and sewn to size.

“I’m over the moon with the results. I left it to the guys here to come up with the design, I told them to surprise me, and I’m very pleased with the outcome.” – Tyson Fury 

The second time around: 

Unlike the first time, the second order from Tyson came to us as part of a collaborative project with Mono Automotive – An Auto Care company based in Newcastle. Working closely with other businesses enables each workforce to focus on their speciality as a much higher quality outcome is produced when a job is left to the professionals. As an honest company, we would rather put our hands up and admit we haven’t done something before than take it on and let the customer down.

Both teams wanted to make sure his second Land Rover was fit for a king, so while Mono Automotive took care of the exterior modifications, we made sure the inside reaped quality and comfort. After a unanimous decision from our design team to match the colour scheme of the freshly wrapped red and black body, the only thing left to do was decide the type of quilting. Since Fury had left it in the hands of our capable team to decide, we had an important decision to make.
