    DIY Land Cruiser Heaven leather - foam padding

    I put an LCH on the driver side and an OEM on the passenger just to long term test. Seats feel the same.

    DIY Land Cruiser Heaven leather - foam padding

    LCH is using more modern manufacturing and looks like a more precisely built product. The support on the bottom side feels more rigid, and I would assume, more durable over time. See attached pics. Other than the installation difficulties with the 100% leather kit, I'm extremely satisfied.

    They aren't but they feel pretty damn good compared to stock. I actually am selling an OEM and LCH driverside foam if your interested in either.

    DIY Land Cruiser Heaven leather - foam padding

    The only place I could think of is the seat back board since the vinyl material is thin. It's almost too "pillowy" compared to factory IMO. before I did that, I did one board with the factory material still attached with no foam - it feels tighter but the Leather primer I used didn't hold up and...

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Doing the same to mine. Just a bummer to find when all you wanted to do was finish the project.

    What Did You Do with Your 80 This Weekend?

    Started doing leather and seat cushions ... only to find all the outboard cushion supports on the drivers side we’re broken at the welds

    DIY Land Cruiser Heaven leather - foam padding

    I can’t find any info on the site, google, email to Frank or searching here. The leather kit came with 2 large sheets of 1/2” backed foam padding. Those of you who have this kit, where is this foam intended to go? Armrests? Seat surfaces? Seat backs?

    Doors wont lock w/ key, lock switch or clicker, only manually.

    I've replaced actuators with new OEM units and have only a slight improvement with locking via electronics. Sometimes a lock needs "2 presses" with the remote or switch to lock - especially in the cold. I've replaced the entire handle and manual lock with a new unit to see if that is dragging -...

    94 delayed cranking. Starter, ignition switch, or other?

    I hate "adding" unnecessary components: One more complication - one more failure point. But this has more benefits than losses in my opinion. I installed my extra solenoid without cutting wires. Get a set of 4.8mm spade connectors (male/female) and plug-n-play. Use a little dielectric grease...

    94 delayed cranking. Starter, ignition switch, or other?

    After years of tolerating the click...no start. And years of randomly throwing money at the problem (new starter, NSS, fusible links, etc etc). And years of my wife being afraid to get stuck at the Costco gas station again - I decided to try jvazquez53's recommendation. I used a Cole Hersee...

    key off power drain

    I recommend getting a multimeter and voltage test each fuse with the rig off. You'll see 0v on all but the line drawing current.

    No click, No crank, what have I screwed up?

    Thanks for all the input. I disconnected the battery to reset everything and now it cranks/starts again. I think the short may have tripped something in the aftermarket alarm - who knows.
