    nice motor mate! welcome to the forum! did you install that leather yourself? if so, how did you do it? did you buy new leather covers and fitted them or you just took them to a shop for re-trimming? cheers, gabriel

    cheers cocker much appreciated ! yeah installed it myself its the full seats not covers , found them on ebay for £200 i thought was a bargain :-) -they didnt look exactly like that though i had to recolour the m stripes with some leather paint ( top stuff came in an aerosol from a cobblers shop ) and that went well so i did the grey piping with the same stuff ,got the gloss on the black just with a load of liquid shoe cover - was just a bit of a bitch it was a fiver for each colour for the stripes even though i only needed an eyeful ! lol
