Leather Seat install

05 Prerunner double cab, sport buckets in the front, 60/40 split in the back.

I just ordered a leather interior off ebay. They are made by Bartlett. This is supposed to be the same type you would get if you bought it from a dealer and wanted to change the interior to leather (which is exactly what I did with my 05 4Runner at a cost of $1000). To install these, you are supposed to remove the cloth to install the leather. Anybody have any experience with this? If I can install them myself I will only have $299 invested.

No experience, but I would love to see some pictures before, during, and after the install. If you were to do a write up on it, you could end up getting Sticky Status and wicked braggin' rights.

Soon...

Let us know how it goes!

Cheers!

I'm on my computer @ work and they block access to Ebay so I can't find his web store right now. I did find his email address accessoriesrus@aol.com
I found a guy that would install them for $250 over the weekend, so I just decided to save myself the headache. I will post the pictures when I get the truck back on Monday.
The leather kit came with the material to do the door panels as well.All for $299.

Soon... very soon

I had the rear seats installed. When they went to install the front, it turns out that the seats would not fit because I had the Side Air Bags. Since I bought them on Ebay, I thought I was just S.O.L.
I emailed Mick @ the email I listed above, and he sent me a new set to accomodate the air bags. I can't say enough good things about that company. Anyway, I should have them on this week for sure.
Thanks for your interest,
Motocrs

complications

I ran into another problem. So far I have the rear seats and the driver's seat complete. The passenger seat did not account for the hard plastic backing on the seat. I am going to try to make it work somehow.
I promise to post some pics when complete.

I emailed Him back when He was having problems with installing the front seat covers and apparently He ordered the Wrong ones. He got the TRD / Sport model ones when He should have got the Standard / SR5 covers. When I pointed out the mistake I never heard from him again. Not sure if he threw in the towel or what.
