Here you go Fellas,
I will post pics first then as memory serves me I will post my notes
eBay's SEATSSHOP, ( I know I know, I was yelled at by my wife, but she ain't yelling anymore, can't get that silly grin of her face ) Made in China but quality is not bad, they have offices in Canada and Texas. They can also make any seat skins if you send them your original. I sent my Mother's LX450 front seats, arm rest and head rest. Gave me a great deal at $175 shipped, WTD??? I guess they will use it as the sample for future LX450-470 sales.
They were very professional and patient with me, Sent me swatches to make sure I choice the right color
Kit $450 Shipped:
L4 Color, much lighter than OEM but looks great.
Tools Needed, Most Important:
Harden Tipped Cutter, not to cut but to twist and pry those darn hog rings
Hog Ring Pliers, preferably angled
Plastic Shopping Bag, you'll see.
Polished Steel Hog Rings to resist Rust
Mineral Oil to clean adhesive over spray
Please note, I injured my wrist on NYD fun run in my Porsche, lost rear end and ditched her and it snapped my steering wheel the opposite direction and took my thumb with it
So yes I did this pretty much with one hand so I guess I could have done it quicker.
Rear Seat Removal
Swatches against the OEM leather color, wife chose L4. Mom chose L3
Rear seat just pulls up off of two bracketsand out and the top section is held down by 2 14MM bolts and then it pulls up off the brackets 2 sides and center.
I chose to do the arm rest first. OEM is zippered, the new one comes with a snap strip/clip, like Oragami :P
Just needs steaming
The Rear Seat TOP:
