    A decent trimmer will re build the foam bolster and recover that panel for you. Shouldnt cost more than about £60....

    It looks good and should make the seats look a lot better than they are now.

    I just got a leather trim repair kit from ebay. Looks a nightmare to use but hopefully the end results will be good. I will take a before and after picture of each seat for comparison when i emove them.
