Seat Burn Repair Hertfordshire

October 29, 2012

This customer was based in St Albans in Hertfordshire and had multiple burns on his rear seat of his BMW Mini, it seems the passenger sitting in the rear seat had dropped the cigarette and while trying to pick it up had unintentionally moved the hot end around and in the process created multiple burns on the fabric. This customer had got our details from a previous customer who lived on the same street, he emailed us a photo of the damage and a date and time was arranged to fix the problem.

Seat Burn Damage

As you can see the burn is not the conventional circular shape you would expect to see but where the hot end of the cigarette has been moved around has created an oval shaped burn. The hole itself is quite deep and needs foam filling.

New Seat Burn Repair System

September 30, 2012

Car Body Repairs 4 Less have been carrying out seat burn repairs in Hertfordshire, Essex and North London for the past 10 years, the systems that we use for this service have not change significantly over that period of time. The process of a seat burn repair involves matching up the fibres of the seat by mixing base colours together, placing high tack adhesive glue within the burn itself and then finishing it off with a top coat of glue and a sprinkling of fibres to blend it in. The basic technique described above has one major drawback, the need for a power supply. This requirement restricts where a seat burn can be repaired, so if you leave your car more than 25 metres from a power source or its in a car park the job cannot be carried out, but things are about to change.

The new seat burn repair system that Car Body Repairs 4 Less are using is the most up to date there is with one major advantage there is no need for a power supply so repairs can be carried out anywhere with no restrictions.  We have been using this for the past month and have found that its already proven its worth, its opened up more opportunities where the previous system didn’t and is small enough to be carried around so even if we can’t park close to the vehicle which needs the repair as long as its it walking distance the job is still on.

Below are some examples of the repairs carried out by this new seat burn system.
