Good work on those seat backs and good to see them fully stripped for painting rather than just being masked. Thumb

I do have a library of pics doing the same job from few years ago and thought I had posted a write up but I can't seem to find it on here, maybe I didn't?

Can't believe I missed this thread. I'm well over due coding my seats. Nice work Martin.

Will have a good gander at the video later. thumbsup

Yep, another thanks from here. Will be using this how to at some point. Thinking about retriming sports seats with cloth centres.

Houndstooth or tarten....... Hmmmm

I have been on the lookout for the relay looms which go on the bottoms of the seats. These come up for sale very rarely, and are typically up for >£100 each. Today I picked up a pair of heated seats to take the relays and looms from them. The problem is, the seats are REALLY good. So I think I might get the backs of these painted and keep them.

Those seats would look good in my C2. Let me know if you are thinking of selling them. Thumb
