Finally some pics of my AL7 to AL6 swap...this will do for now. Don't know why the seats appear to be a different colour in the picture. They are the same IRL.

Before:



After:



My new stereo...Pioneer DEH-7800 MP OLED head unit. It rocks.

Very nice. We don't get to see the black and gold combination too often. I like it. BTW, nice tips!

ok. I think we have the worst looking seats/interior on our 93 ssei. We're new to doing modifications etc. Where do we get replacement leather seats? We also need to know what recommended cleaner is best for dirty carpeting.

No AL7 replacement? Looks much better now! That before shot looks like a raccoon was let loose in your car.

Yeah, it isn't an AL7...but I really actually prefer the manual recline, and I don't miss the back controls. Since this seat is much less worn it is more supportive anyway. I have been looking for a seat for a year. That is the first one in the right colour I have found.

bonneandclyde: That is a junkyard seat. You just gotta look around.

On an interesting note, the US and Canadian seat belt buckles are different. Ours are metal and have a button that says "GM" on them. The American seat was plastic with a red button. They are not backward compatible. Also, in the American car the "fasten seatbelt sensor" is in the belt buckle, whereas the Canadian version is the in the seatbelt reel thingy on the floor. Go figure.
