This design was introduced in 1969 firstly on the Clubman models, then later on Mini saloons. On the early seats the welded section was sewn into the face of the seat whereas on the later model the welded face is made as one complete section. The earlier seats have a larger amount of padding than the later seats and we would recommend that new seat covers are fitted with brand new foams.
Some later models were fitted with cloth style seats that are now no longer available and these earlier seat covers can be used to replace these, however the foams for the earlier kit (SF3016) will need to be used.
