    I like how these turn out and finally got my color swatch sheet, but I'm still having a hard time finding a match for natur.


    This stitch pattern is specific to convertibles only. They now offer it on their website, though i don’t think coupe seat centers will accept them without modification.

    Okay I just ordered my set!

    A few questions for you guys. Did any of you replace the shocks on your sport seats? What stapler did you guys use to staple the leather on the center pads? What type of glue are you guys using to glue the leather the rear seat cover?

    Seat backs were bare leather. I stripped the original leather down to cardboard and glued them on with strong upholster stuff.

    How long is it taking you guys to receive your covers. I'm ready to order my set.

    I was able to recover the back in my garage with some steam and some strong glue. Pics to follow.

    Where are you guys getting the backs of the seats redone?

    It did come with the leather for the seat back and they have stopped putting foam on that part. I just need to wait for my steamer to be delivered so I can warm it up and recover the back cover. I am going to go over the oem as the leather is so well attached it would likely destroy the card board. Pics up soon

    Thank you


    I bought this kit from Amazon. The front seats needed ~120 rings so I had to purchase another 100pack of rings to finish the back seats. 3/4” rings work best.

    It was my first time recovering seats and it’s definitely doable with intermediate DIY skills. You just have to be very detailed to stretch the covers to the intended position (stitches running along the crest of the bolsters) and get very familiar with hog-ring pliers. It took a day and a half to do the front seats, but I took extra care and put them together very slowly. Rear seats were done in half a day.

    I took a ton of photos and plan to make a DIY thread soon.
