Default Where can I find cloth soarer seats?

I have a 2000 sc300 and would really like to vet a set of black cloth seats front and rear. I cannot find anything local. Thanks

I'm not sure what your used import yards are like over there with soarer parts, but if you are genuinely serious about obtaining a set & money is not an issue maybe look into having a set shipped from AUS or Japan as a last resort?

A friend of mine who runs an import wrecking business currently has a full set of black cloth seats in stock from a '94 model & from memory another set from a '97 which I haven't personally seen just yet.

If you are interested, feel free to shoot me a PM & I can give you his details to make an inquiry regarding shipping.

It's likely cheaper to have someone reupholster your seats in cloth than to ship something that big overseas. The material will be cheap, so you're mostly just looking at labor. Unless you really value the JDM effect, I would much rather have 15+ year newer fabric.

I just saw a SC with cloth interior for sale here in jersey. Rare option I believe.
You might find some on ebay or even check out some different vehicles Lexus/Toyota

I didn't think cloth interior was an option at all here in the states? I know its a Soarer thing but I don't think Lexus offered it, leather was standard.

There's been mention of a very limited cloth/hardtop combo. I think it was only early years?

Dang super rare then! I wonder how much weight was saved with a hardtop and cloth interior?

there are cloth seats that were available as a standard option. majority of the ones in the states came with the leather option from factory, but not all of them.
