    I have torn leather on the side of the driver's seat (probably most others have this problem too). Anybody know a good way to fix this? I don't care so much about how it looks, I just want to stop the tear from getting bigger. Thanks

    I would look at seat covers -- wet okole makes customs for the 80, and you don't have to get black skirts if you order them over the phone --

    -- www.wetokole.com --

    You can get the seats restitched fairly cheaply by an upholstery shop if you pull the seats out for them. The problem is matching the leather for replacement panels. I've been told I'd have to spend over $200 for a custom dyed piece that would be anywhere close. If anyone knows an inexpensive source of Toyota's "grey" leather I'd be interested.
