I just got back from the junkyard today and got the whole interior leather for $12.95 . I was going to get the supercharger and start building on getting the engine, trans, etc. but someone had already took the supercharger. It took me a full 3 hours to get the leather off. I hate those metal rings that holds the leather to the frame, its was just too many. I hope its not that hard putting them back on!

because I didn't have about $100 to spend on the interior, $12.95 vs. $100. I look at things like it'* not impossible so I'm pretty sure the leather is going to get on my seats even if it takes me 24 hours Plus, my fiance birthday is wednesday, friday, saturday, and sunday so I got to have something good planned on those days, since her friend just got married yesterday and now she'* all mad at me and stuff. You know how it goes.

they wanted $100 for the seats and $12 for the leather? I wonder if they realize they will never sell the seats like that.

$100 for the seats would have been a steal, its a shame you couldnt afford them

yeah that would've been much easier than ripping the leather off.

It was definitely not a 95 because those headrests are easy to get off. I changed my 94 headrests over to 95s so I wouldn't have to screw around with them to get them off.

Leather for $13 isn't bad.

oh yeah I forgot to add that it was a '95, it was written on the side of the car. I really didn't see it the first time. I also found out that the adjustment points in the mid body of the seats are filled with air inside of bags. I use to think that it was like mechanical bars that push out.

Just an FYI to all. 92-94 and some 95 were removed this way. Some 95-99 have a small hole in the front of the plastic piece and all you need is a paper clip or pick to remove them.
