    Oh yeah, and originally I was just going to have that piece glued on, but then decided I'd rather have it sewn in case I didn't use the stainless trim. It just seems strange that once one started to sew the seam that they just wouldn't go all the way. Also, it is glued at the bottom. It's a minor niggle, and I'll most likely trim it off or end up gluing it down.

    Your input is valuable since you've gone through this Norm. I'm happy that Chris has his seats back.
    Go outside and enjoy life.

    No. That's still a long ways off as the weather is being a complete and utter ass. It's been a crummy April for thinking about car stuff. Cold, rainy with bouts of snow. I'm really disliking the month.
    I still haven't done anything with the family room either. I need to get it straightened up so I can lay out all the seats.
