    Just got my new leather. I ordered two tone that matches the rest of the interior, and perforated inserts. I like it. My pics don't show the correct colors, but it looks extremely close in person. Leatherseats.com for about $1100 for the front 2 rows. I also bought an extra yard of each color to do the center console and other stuff in the future if I want.

    Yep. Looks great. Are you going to have a pro install it or track down some hog pliers and DIY?

    I can do it myself. I have sewn upholstery in the past, I'm self taught but can handle installing this for sure.

    I went through a ton of their samples and found what I thought was the closest. 094 was the tan and 088 is the dark. If you look on the color chart you will see it, but you need a real sample to compare.

    Very nice. The quality looks amazing. Very interested to see installed pics. Good luck and props for doing it yourself. Will be more rewarding when it's all done.

    I just ordered and will receive my front seats from LSeat this Thursday. I ordered hog ring pliers and rings and will recover the seats myself. I had quotes to just do the cover installs at over $900. What a ripoff.

    Can anyone give me some insight into removing the hard plastic under second row seat DS?
    Something (possible beans or dog food (PO's kids)) rolling around in bottom.

    Seat bottom plastic:

    Around the perimeter of the plastic is a channel that the leather hooks/tucks into. Pull off that plastic panel on the upper left corner and you'll see where you can start working a screwdriver in there.

    Thanks @labcab, I see that channel leathers hooked onto. Looks like a bear to stretch & hook back on when I'm done.

    Are there any snaps or screws hold on plastic once I get leather unhooked?

    So I'm thinking; if I unhook the bottom, I may be able to pull on plastic enough that whatever's rolling around in there may fall out. Does that sound like it will work?
