My hands STILL hurt! Hog Rings kinda suck!

Passenger seat Wednesday night. If it goes well enough I may try to do the driver seat then too. I'm worried about how hard they are going to be to remove from the car. Loc-tite on the bolts, I hear... :(

Thanks guys

I must be losing my mind, 'cause I stopped at the local custom shop and blew more money on seat warmers to install while I'm at it My 2SS-driving boyfriend always complains that I don't have them, so maybe this will hush him up

And the leather is now done!

My hands are throbbing red and covered in cuts. I have gashes in both legs; I threw my back out lugging around those ridiculously heavy seats...

But it was SO worth it to sit in these seats today

I installed the seat warmer buttons on the sides of the seat shields; they look factory that way IMO. They are in the seats, wired and ready to go but I need to connect the power wires up to the center console. I'll do that later.

Just stoked this little project is wrapped up, and I think it came out quite nicely!!! I forgot how pleasant leather is..

Well done, Sarah, well done. I think it's cute how you were doing the work in your living room.

Make him help with the seat cover install for the front buckets
including the seat warmer pads.

Strych I wasn't about to work out in the heat! luckily I am house sitting for my parents and they have a huge formal living room. And my dad has a workshop. Vise clamp and drill came in handy for the seat warmer install!



Haha I'd tell him to but they're already done thanks to nearly killing myself last night to complete them! I have the gashes and cuts and rug burn to prove it

Now he just gets to enjoy them
