its definatly cold enough here. (boise, ID)
I may as well, since I am in there. I just want to make sure and do a clean install on the rocker switches. Where do the stock switches go on equiped modles? to the right of the AWD lock? Maybe I will even go the extra mile and try and get some stock switches too.



as for the price, just under 600 shipped. I'm not holding my breath until I see the quality though. Don't worry, if they turn out nice, I will post up pics. Now I just have to blackmail my buddy into helping me w/ the install.

I feel the love....
don't worry, what I lack in 8th grade english skills I make up in creativity and mods.

Just wait for my laser jammer and radar detector mod.

I like the idea of the escort on the passenger visor, but I like a cleaner integrated look. Also my stock stereo is leaving a bit to be desired, so that is going to have to be addressed as well.

ok guys/gals,
Sorry for the delay, I have been really busy!

I received the kit on time as promised ($600 shipped)
Leather/vinyl combo. (leather seats with vinyl sides.) Appears to be drum died. (color goes all the way threw, not just surfaced died.)

I took the kit to an upholstery shop in town and they were impressed.
An installer said it looked to be an OEM kit and his cost would be much more than what I paid.

The down side, they wanted $500 to install and were booked for months! So I had to tackle the install myself. To my surprise it really wasn't that technical. At some point I will probably have the leather steamed to tighten up some areas, but overall it turned out very nice.

The install was very time consuming. average was about 4 hours per seat. I did one per day. (drivers seat last, and of coarse the hardest.)

Sorry for the lack of pics. I haven’t had the opportunity yet... But I will get some soon.

on the bright side, there are 42 grammatical/spelling errors above, that should keep you busy until I return w/ pics!

Jaggy,

Can't wait for the pics. Where did you get the seats from?

Also, I'm glad to see that our kidding around didn't scare you away.

It's all in good fun.

PS: There are 43. :)

On factory equipped Mo's, the seat heater switches are on the console, between the shift lever and the open bin at the far front of the console.

Enforcer-

Is that a "staged" photo, or is your storage tray always that clean?

Thanks for the pic's of the heated seats. for now I have opted to skip that step. I may add them later.

As for the finished product. I am very pleased with how they turned out. I'll get pics up in the next week.

as for the screwing around... I know I am a rookie and expect it:rolleyes: ;) :D

my next project is radar detector/ laser jammer and some kind of upgrade to the stock stereo. (gonna have to do some research on that one... its looking a little more diffacult that I anticipated.)

ok... I got some pics... The quality kinda sux but anyhow.
I also edited post #1 with the links.

you may notice a few "pucker" marks. basicly that is from the hog ring being too tight on the leather. After I break them in a little I will have a shop steam them to shrink/stretch where appropriate.

Overall I think it turned out very nice. Most people has assumed it was factory leather.
