Wow, that's not too bad. That means, for your second seat, it'll be about 2 - 2.5 hours. Which is really a nice Saturday afternoon.

Nice work, and thanks for the pictures.

Great documentation. You're one of the guys that make PP worth my time.
And years later that brake light relay switch is still clicking away under my bonnet. Thanks!

Those seats look great! Just wondering, is there a way to repair or replace cracked seat piping?

Thanks, it was fun and seats still look great.

Yes, you can but it will require you two remove the skins and take it to a upholsterer or if you have a very talented Moms or Girl fried to stich it for you.

You can do it by hand but it will take for almost ever.

It was very rewarding but now I am looking at everyone's seat. I guess I am being a bit annoying, "hey they didn't do this and that right" :-P

You would think if they are going to charge 400-600 just for labor, they can at least do it right, dang it.

Very impressive work. That looks like a tedious job. The end product looks fantastic.

Hi DRACO...Would you mind expanding on the procedure to remove the side handle...Are you prying up with the screwdriver? - Or?...Thanks!

By the way, thanks for the great photos, including your detailed step by step of 'how to' on this project _ Good stuff!

Cheers!

Ready for steam to puff it back up

They will swell another 3-5MM's, in areas that compressed. Remove bad batting and replace. Funny the tops had a wool like batting, very nice stuff. I had synthetic but did a better job of coverage, just glue on the bolsters, not the insert area, if you select perforated, you want the seat to breathe, glue it will not.

Top dismantle:



Passenger side had OEm batting to conceal hog rings and metal deviations, my driver side did not have it, freakin POS installer short cutted there, I just used batting, perfect no bumps





You MUST stick screw drive inside the channel to remove the handle, if you pull from the outside you will break it, ask me how I know.

Sure thing, what you need to do is stick the screw driver at the based of the handle that the metal arm goes into. The handle is "T" shaped, you want leverage at the bottom of the T with the screwdriver's edge then pry up. DO NOT pull or pry on the outside no matter what you do the inner clips are strong then you might think, but with the screw driver at the base it will give and pop right off.

Think about removing the OEM shift knob, you dont pull on top you place leverage at the base the pop it off .

I hope this is clear enough. If you can peer into the cavity you will see the base that needs to be caught for leverage.

Jim

Thanks!

Thanks Jim.... I bought a couple of them last year as the colour of mine had faded a bit but I eventually gave up....Your explanation is as clear as a bell!

Cheers!
