Got sick of sitting on planks

Decided i'd dump the Ghia seats in my car :)
was sick of the GLi seats so needed an upgrade, the Leather seats were simply sitting out the bank till i was ready to give em a clean.

i was holding off due to having to remove the carpet etc etc when installing power windows but decided I WANT BETTER SEATS.

so they're in :D



so there ya have it, a GLi with optioned leather

Nice! Leather is so comfortable, and because you've got tinted windows they shouldn't get sun damaged

Re: Got sick of sitting on planks

Have you done any significant drives now that you've put the new seats in?

Re: Got sick of sitting on planks

The extra bolstering is nice!
I had an EF Futura that after driving to work (1 hour) I couldn't stand up straight for 20 minutes. The rock hard suspension probably didn't help either...

In my Fairlane, I can drive for hours without a worry in the world!


Mmmmm Luxury Seating augghhgllgygg.....

Have you still got bits from the Ghia for sale ie rear rotors?

Re: Got sick of sitting on planks

Where did you source the seats from ? Can you give approx prices ?
I'd be interested in adding some leather to the XR . . .
