Riley Elf & Wolseley Hornet Interiors

The Riley Elf & Wolseley Hornets were manufactured from 1961 to 1969.

Although the Riley Elf & Wolseley Hornets are based on the Mini platform, when it comes to the interior they are unique and as a result, retrimming a Riley Elf or a Wolseley Hornet is classed as a bespoke project here at Optimise.

This means that your project will need to be booked into our bespoke schedule of work (please ask for details with regards to our current bespoke work schedule availability).

First of all (before we get into estimated prices), here is what you need to know:

  • Riley Elf & Wolseley Hornet front seats are the same as standard Classic Mini later style non-reclining front seats, but the original covers have a unique panel layout design. As a result, if you would like to match your original front seat designs we are only able to offer seat retrims (not seat covers). Alternatively, we can certainly copy the face panel designs and offer seat covers, but the borders and panel layouts would be different.
     
  • Both the Riley Elf & Wolseley Hornet back seats are completely different to a standard Classic Mini saloon back seat and we only offer Elf or Hornet back seat retrims, this means we need your original back seat here at Optimise HQ to complete the work.
     
  • A vast majority of the Riley Elf & Wolseley Hornet interior panels & trim are unique to the Elf or Hornet. This means that we recommend you provide us with your original interior trim, allowing us to check the fitment of each & every panel, to ensure everything fits perfectly. Further information with regards to the original panels and/or trim that we recommend providing will be detailed when you get in touch.
     
  • If you require a new headliner, we would need either the original frames (early Elf's & early Hornet's) or the Mini (later Elf's & early Hornet's) here at Optimise HQ to complete the work.
     
  • If you require a carpet kit (or any aspects of a carpet kit), we would need the Riley Elf or Wolseley Hornet here at Optimise HQ to complete the work.
     
  • If you require the metal dash rails trimmed (like many Elfs or Hornets), we would need the Elf or Hornet here at Optimise HQ to complete the work. Alternatively, if this is not possible we can provide matching material so you can trim the dash rails yourself.

And now have the information out the way, we can get straight into the price lists:

For reference, all of the prices detailed below include items trimmed in our standard trimming ranges (our standard leatherette, standard carpet, standard perforated leatherette and standard OEM headlining options, listed accordingly).
