I had three adults (all Americans) in the back on an R50 (I know, not enough belts). They just have to be really friendly.

Very nice work to everyone who's taken the time to do this mod, it looks really great.

This was much easier to do than I thought it was going to be. I just got the front headrests done as I can do them inside while I watch TV. It's a little to cold here in the northeast to be doing this sorta thing outside. Hope fully I will be able to use my buddies garage one of these days.

Does anyone know how to get the shift and e-brake boots off? I think it will make it a bit easier.

(also you can see the shift boot ring [and not pictured the two door handle rings] i painted black tonight too, as the silver is just not doing it for me)
Any pictures of the door?

bridgeport? I'm up in storrs and i bare the cold weather =] haha
the best way to do it is after you come back from a 15+ min drive there the car gets nice and warm, then you just stay inside once you get home and work for an hour at a time lol
i'll snap a photo of the door ring tmrw.
shift boot- put it in 3rd gear or 6th gear, and where i found it easiest to pull up the ring is at 9 o clock, so due West of the circle... reach your fingers underneath and pull, the clip will undo itself. then work it around and get all the clips off, careful though, youll prob end up breaking the small ones (which is fine cuz mine still holds perfectly fine with just the big ones there) (you'll see what i mean when you get it up). then pull straight up on the shift knob, and watch your face so you dont punch yourself.

shift boot i haven't tackled completely yet... but you can def get it done in the car.

Yeah and once I hit a point of being cold I'm not happy at all and will give up on this. I just talked to my buddy and the Sunday after v-day I can use his heated garage all day as long as I walk his dog that day. Not a bad deal. Hopefully a full day of working will get both front seats and the boots taken care of. Thank god I don't have the back seats in my car.

Honestly, you may need 2 days. Its pretty hard to sit in the same akward position for more than 2 hours at a time. And there is a LOT of stitching on each seat. But then again maybe your a lot faster with a needle than I am Use the dull end of a hooked needle for the bolsters it helps.
