Any suggestions on where to find seat kits, or should I plan on have them custom made?

Thanks!

I've never seen any. I was quoted around $750 to redo all the seats in ours by a local shop who's been doing this kind of work for years. I will probably go that route.

Bummer - you'd think somewhere in Italy there would be a cottage industry doing this....

Oh well. Thanks for the info!

I doubt there is enough demand to justify a large run which would bring prices down.

I have a set of spare seats and some ratty door panels if you need any spares.

Thank Ian -very generous, thanks. I'm lucky that my door panels are in nice shape at this point, it's really the threading and some tears that I need to address on the seats. Better this than major rust I guess, right?

Portland must be the dumping ground for old Berlina seats and door panels. I finally gave up on giving mine away to no-show Alfa folks, so my old seats are in a TR3 (with nissan motor) I think, and the 6 door panels are awaiting a trip to the dump. ;)

I actually have four black door panels with no speaker cutouts, so I'm good there. The spares were Jeff's old spares from a car he parted. They're practically worthless, I'll likely salvage a few small tirm bit off them and dump them myself. Unless anybody wants them.

20 years from now they'll probably be worth something, but I'm not willing to wait.

Great info guys - the prices at Elvezio are a bit eye watering. Good to have options however!

I don't think you'll find any premade in the US; you know how many running Berlinas there are? Not many.
You'll get a better job and fit by using the old material as a pattern in any case, as seats wear differently over the years, get restuffed to different thicknesses, etc. Get a recommendation for a good local upholsterer, or a good one in Mexico.
