Custom Rear Seats

I recently reapolstered my rear seats and thought I'd show them off. They're a little loose on the top sections but I'm very happy with the outcome hope you guys like them. Oh and I did them myself (first time sewing) SO BACK OFF! lol just kidding.





These are the pieces of the old seat.

mid way through


The bottom piece isn't locked in all the way.

Very nice man! I love it when ppl take on projects like this themselves. Makes you feel better about it when it's done knowing that you didn't just throw out some cash to get it done.

thanks. I like being able to say I did stuff myself! not just bought it and installed it. all though sometimes that's the best way to go but not for stuff like this. If I think I can pull it off then I'll try it.

thanks IMA. I was going to do a DIY on this but didn't think anyone would be interested..... I was wrong! I might be able to still put something together though.

Like I told all my friends, it was definatly worth it but I'm not sure I'll ever do it again. As for the fronts, I'm planning on buying corbeau fx1 or fx1 pros so I'm not going to do the fronts
