Great design and contour to the whole unit! Once I send them off for refurbishment, they should be very comfortable for long trips!

    The only other small wear item in the interior is the door pockets (as seen in picture). It looks like someone closed the door with it open and tweaked the chrome. I'm not sure if the parts are available to rebuild these?

    However, I ordered some German vinyl from Tony at Autobahn Interiors ( you could contact him about your seats) I'm going to recover my old ones for the time being (you could probably check on here, I'm sure someone has the piece you need.

    Yeah I about fell over when I saw what they were asking for the set. Everything about the door pockets are fine except the chrome trim on the hinged parts. They close nicely and the cardboard (?) doors are in good shape and not ripped or deformed. The trim is just boogered-up a little. I was thinking of making a jig with the same contour thickness as the pockets and trying to heat and reshape the trim. I figure if it works, GREAT! If not, eh, no harm no foul.
