Upgrading of the seats....

Recommended Posts

Right place at the right time, I landed some mint condition cream isf seats off a much younger car.  Took the decision to swap them over. I think the colour works very well with the grey paintwork and really lifts the interior...

Very nice, not usually a fan of light interior but the light seats on the nice black interior look superb and the condition looks amazing! Great find!

Time will tell how the colour holds up, obviously it will need plenty of tlc. The little person has been warned about 'daddy's new seats' and informed that santa 🎅 will not be coming to our house for at least a decade if those sticky mitts end up all over them.. 😂 (I jest).

There's a bold move.

I'm quite surprised how well they look and wouldn't have considered such a thing till I clocked the pic's.

Well done, was the seat swap relatively straight forward?

Was anything wrong with your previous seats?

Surprised how easy the swap was, slide seat back, two bolts out. Slide seat forward, two bolts out. Disconnect Battery and undo 3 connectors. Rear seats a little more fiddly but no drama. Maybe 2-3 hours in total. Yes old seats in stock.

Sounds like the same steps in my old steed... I swapped for a nice leather upgrade :)

The seats were easy but 4 door cards and the center arm rest were the most time consuming.

Nicely done Mark. :thumbsup::cool:

Think that looks really good in all honesty. Plus, doubt you'll see another SGM rocking the lighter interior?! :wink3:

Makes your car even more unique (something I know a bit about!).

Best of luck with keeping it looking like it does at the moment.

Cheers.

Cheers Pete, 

I most happy with the appearance from the outside and how it works with the grey paint. 

I've stocked up on the cleaning products! 😉

"And overcharge them...........that is if I turn up in the first place. I mean, a more appealing job may come up any second OR I might have had a bad night's sleep - all the cash under the mattress can be a pain. Anyway, can't talk, got to paint some concrete...... I mean lay tarmac." Yours Sincerely, Ratty.

@Flytvr So hurtful I'm so upset that you think and spread these words about me.................

But today is Friday so unusually for builders we thought as it's one minute to one we'd go to the pub and drown our sorrows for all these ghastly untruths spoken about us 🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺😂

@emjay82 Mark Done a bit of research on the car your new interior came from and I'm virtually certain this it, this car was apparently written off with less than a thousand miles on the clock, looked nice 👍
