Porsche 356

We are excited to announce our recent entry to NC Carpet Binding- World’s Best Interior 2021. This is one of the most pristine awards within our industry, in the world.

Dean’s custom Porsche 356, was one of the most unique builds we have undertaken. With around 250hrs, in the build. There wasn’t one part of the interior that wasn’t modified, customised or remade. The whole build was made from a 6mm saddlery leather, which brought its own challengers. Hand baseball stitched inserts and custom one off hand tattooed door trims. Only the best carpet was sourced, using German Square Weave and finished with a leather bind. Dash top, back of front seats and door trim tops were wrapped in genuine suede. This came from the skiving of the saddlery leather. Hood trim was done in a unique basket weave leather. This created depth to the interior.

The trunk got a full custom overhale. We even covered the engine cowling in leather to carry the theme throughout the whole car.

This build really tested all Dave’s 25 years of experience, but he thoroughly enjoyed the build. It taught him a lot working with different leathers. The build came with a lot of trial and error. The end result was well worth it. Dean can be assured there isn’t another Porsche 356 out there with an interior like this. Totally unique!!

This car needs to be seen in the flesh to appreciate all the fine details.
