Default Seats And Covers

Hi , long time to talk ,,,,,, I am redoing the insides , carpet is done ( I went from dirty beige to black ) now I have a issue with the seats

new racing seats or re do the leather on my stocks

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Toyot...35510402QQrdZ1 redoing it will be a total of 1000$ seats + labor ( all black )


or buy racing seats ( cheaper but back wont match )

donít know what would benefit me more. Black on black new leather and carpet sounds nice and looks sharp (stock) but at what cost?

I also have a badly damaged steering wheel that I want to replace or fix
, dose anyone know if you can reupholster this or do I have to spend like 600+ for a new one ( I think the only nice looking ones are stock ) teahouse skinny hard metal ones look nasty


p.s are those seats for 100 a pop on eBay crap? or?
p.p.s is $350 a normal price for a shop to rip out your old carpet and put in new black one ( not including the trunk)



some pointers guys....... thanx

why wont u jus get sum black and red racing seats

they can have the alcantara inserts, even leather if u really want it to match
and im guessing the racing seats will be lighter than the stock ones since thats almost always the case

Does that $350 include the carpeting? Or is that just the labor? Because if I had to do it again, I'd pay that. The carpet is the biggest pain to put in. I'm getting my stock seats reupholstered. I just dont like the look of racing seats with the stock rear seats. If I wanted the 2 seater, I would've bought the MR-2. No offense to any of you guys without the rear seats, lol.

its not that i want a 2 seater, and yea , i had the same option,
this guy was offering his mr2 to me,
but god forbid, if i was in any accident, i like space for the metal to crumple b4 it hits me
to me roadsters, convertibles,
ei: the miata, and other small cars
are like deathtraps
cuz i can almost swear that a truck can jus run over them without even noticing lol

but back to the seats,
racing seats doesnt have to necesarilly look ugly, and jus for purpose none for looks
sparco makes a huge line of racing seats
the sparco milano seats and really nice,
they are not complety bucket seats yet they hug you real nice
and they are adjustable, you can recline with em too

i think the best would b to jus buy racing seats up-front
and then have the back reupholstered
so that way you can have function and form at the same time
but thats jus my opinion
the decision is still urs
