Thanks guys! Paulo they're a close match as he couldn't source OEM Nappa, I take his word for it. I just need to find a new set of door cards and rear bench since my cinnamon interior is more tanned haha

I can only update you guys with one photo right now since the car is in the garage and is not great for lighting etc.

Couldn't be happier with the way they came out, I always knew I'd need lighter/less tanned cinn door cards and rear bench, but with a clean they came out a lot better.



If you order covers, I'd advise you to take the seat bottom off with the 4 Allen screw and then pull off the covers from that and the seat back respectively. Be careful of the foam, velcro attachments and tab clips when removing. Check AMX Performance on YouTube for his removal videos.

For re-installation, you should start by getting all the velcro pieces and tabs nicely in place in the center of the seat back and seat bottom, before you start pushing the gaskets back into place.

For the seat bottom I'd recommend starting from the front and work your way back. For the seat backs, start from the headrest and move down. The OUTER gasket is what needs to be tucked in, and you will 100% need plastic trim tools to do this. The straight piece was the most useful tool I could've asked for. Any other questions, please feel free to ask.

Will post more photos after my CSL airbox is done, as the DME is out to Kassel for modification.
