Post by paulskestrel » Sun Mar 18, 2018 11:27 pm

Hi,
Does anyone know where you can get the Hessian, thats in my Kestrel -aprox 1985.
As I'm going to need to replace some of it.
Thanks regards Paul.

do you mean upholstery or head lining?

Hi,

Yes upholstery. Mine goes round all the boxes underneath the seats in the rear cockpit, also all around in the cabin. But not on the headlining,
Cheers

Hi,

I took a piece of what I thought was hessian from my F4 to an upholsterers to see if I could get something similar, and it turned out it was actually a basket weave chenille that had aged badly.
I then bought some from eBay.
