Hello everyone while we are new to the site, we have provided our services to a few members of the GMH-Torana community.

To give you an idea of what we do at Cools Auto Trim, we supply and fit original interiors using quality reproduction materials, specialising in seats, head liners, door trims etc. We can supply individual trim components or you can bring your car to us for a full interior overhaul.

We offer competitive pricing, please give us a call and get a quote.

I have attached some photos of some recent products we have produced. Contact details are below.

Wow!....... Very nice indeed :)

Can you make the seat skins and post them up to all of us far-northerners? Or do you need the actual seats to trim?

I highly recommend Steve & the team at Cools Auto Trim, they are responsible for the immaculate trim in my Orchid LH.

Cools are also handling the trim restoration for my LH SL/R in the original Ash Grey with Herringbone cloth inserts, a combination i spent years trying to find, contacting several trim restoration experts with no luck until a call to Steve ended my search. A true enthusiast & great bloke to deal with who really knows his buisness, especially older classics like Toranas. I can't speak highly enough of the quality their work & customer service.

Hi Kush, Steve is away from the computer all weekend and asked me to respond for him.

Cools can make the seat skins "covers" without your seat frames and post the skins for you or your Auto Trimmer to fit to your seats.

If you want to discuss further, ring and ask for Steve. Thanks.

Steve is the person responsible for my interior. When i approached him to do something special he said "leave it with me" and there you have the end result. Nothing was a drama and i highly recommend him from standard to mild to full custom .

I've had similar recaros in the back of mine since about 04. Took me a lot of searching to find someone who would do it, so it's good to find someone else who is happy and capable!!
I've got the open headrests on though :D

Hi Kevin

Thank for the kind words, if I remember correctly your interior was ash grey with herringbone inserts. Post up some photos if you get a chance.

Thanks for the warm welcome. The enquiries, emails and positive comments are much appreciated Posted Image . Seeing how you guys and gals like photos, I have attached some photos of other recent work we have completed. The photos aren't labelled and they aren't all toranas, I am sure many of you will guess what cars the interiors belong to. More photos will be posted when time permits.

We just finished trimming a nice little 4 door LC. We have had some enquiries in regards to custom interiors and while this LC isn't a wild custom retrim, the owner wanted something a little different but was still period specific.

We incorporated a LC GTR theme and are very happy with the way it turned out. Thought you would like to see some photos.
