Hi Wietsche. Perhaps contact Rick Melville at rick@unplugged.co.za Its his name in that company and although I think he is no longer in partnership, he should be able to connect you with someone.
Have Troll, will travel.

I had the same issue, my Patrol only came with front M&M seat covers. They were very worn and the piping was worn through on the driver's side.

I found them on Google and contacted Mellvill &Moon in PE and they were excellent and their seat covers were priced very much the same as the lesser brands. They even traded my front seat covers in on new ones, I think they gave me 15% of the price of new ones off if I sent back the old ones.

They were delivered in about a week, and I could give the courier the old ones, (I wrapped them in Plastic and put them into a box), and M&M even paid for that too!!

Very impressed by their service...

PS
They also have an outlet in Kramerville, in Jhb, Sandton area.

My M&M drivers side seat covers fell to pieces after a few years of relatively light use (My car spent most of its life at Nissan having the hand grenade "repaired" :-) M&M were really rude and not interested in repairing. Takla come with a lifetime warranty and I will be upgrading as soon as I can afford to.

So dit klink vir my dat die takla die seatcovers is wat die job sal doen. Ek hou nie eintlik van die melville and moon nie met die stukkie leër daarin lyk dit nogals kakerig. Sal kyk vir n kompleet stel takla of iets anders.

Wiets,

Probeer ook Escapegear, het nie die leer soos M&M nie maar is ook van dieslfde material, dink hulle maak ook van die nylon tipe soos Talka. Gaan kyk na hulle webwerf. Ek is baie tevrede met myne en is al 4 jaar in die Trol sonder probleme, het ook een van hulle dash covers cool produk vir toer!

Had a set of M&M in my LWB Kombi for more than three years before trading it for the Trol! Wish I could get them fitted again but at nearly R9k its gonna have to wait...a long time!
