    a fanstastic job, can you go into more detail regarding how you did this and what ( leather) you used, also did you just make the patterns from the original seat? and did you use any special thread on the stiching, sorry for all the question but have been looking in to this myself for some time

    hi m8 i just used normal faux leather and 100% polyester cotton i unstiched the old fabric seats and copyed the patern from them its worth doing but if you do use your old seat covers theres little v's cut in them for them to line up right mine have been done a little over a month now, ive just finished doing some for my m8 whos got a vito van in grey faux leatheret to match his front ones that was 5 back seats i done for him.

    i was thinking of buying another set of cloth seats from the local breakers or ebay and doing another set
