The Solex carbs can be a bear to work on. I had a 114 and replaced the carb with a generic one (I think it was a holly, but don't quote me on that). The kit came with the adapter plate and everything else I needed.
That stated, once the solex is rebuilt, adjusted and set correctly, the car will run like a top. How much a rebuild kit is, or what it might cost to have done professionally ... is beyond my knoelwdge.
Seats are easy to re-stuff. The pads are rubberized horse hair pads. I replaced mine in hours, once I got the seats out of the car.
