    It depends on what kind of seat you’re working on. I mostly did Volvo. Also, it gets pretty hot here in the summer and relatively chilly in the winter. Might snap. Did my own seats a decade ago and they still hold.

    I used zip ties when I replaced my drivers seat foam 3 years ago. Still holding up fine. Few months later during peak covid lockdown. I tore down the seats entirely to replace the warped drivers backrest frame and both seat cables. Took a couple of days, but boy did it make all the difference.

    Anyone have any XP with Gahh Automotive's E39 "Style 4" covers? They just sent me a swatch of the leather they use and color/texture looks just about perfect.

    Tried to get the color the best I could... They will send swatches that you can match for yourself. I checked against the back seats since they have much less wear/tear.
