Great project. Now move on to the stubby antenna conversion! Let's dump the telescope!

I hate the telescope too.. disconnected mine and only have it 10-12" up.

Anyway, great job. I've done this on my 1st Gen GS years ago and on a Pontiac, and this definitely seems like more work due to the design of the seat.

Update: After about a 10 minute drive I tried the seat warmers.
They still work!!
But it was not super warm. I will try it for a longer period and see if they warm up more.
The leather has a foam pad which is much thicker which could be causing the problem.
Also keep in mind its about 80 degrees here too.

Default Leather seat replacement

Re: TriniLex--- great Post on seat replacement..... Wish you were local!

Does anyone have or can you recommend an installer in Houston to replace seats or seat covers on 2002 sc430--- Ecru...... Looks like Leather Seats .com might be the source of the covers but I do not think I am up to the task of DIY..... Thanks
