    With having all our time taken up with Project GTI http://www.audi-sport.net/vb/detailing/120811-project-gti.html We have had very little time to sort out a side project which we are trying to get ready for GTI Inters in June.

    Sunday being a day of rest (NOT) we spent a little time repairing and cleaning the Recaro Seats ready for fitting ..

    Both of the front Seat's had damage to the plastic side panel trims & Pocket trims.

    So after tracking down some good 2nd hand trim panel's over the past few months it was time to replace the damaged items.

    Side Hinge & Pocket Trim Removed.

    New 2nd Hand trims fitted.

    50/50

    Very Pleased with the final results being that the leather is over 14 years old. Once cleaned we fitted some new plastic guides.

    Thanks for the kind comments guy's.. Here a couple more pic's that the wife put together.... She is very much looking forward to seeing and driving the car once all the work is finished..

    Photos are all before detailing work (I won't let her see the correction stages).
