  1. It’s a 1987 that I’ve had since 1992. I had a 1960 model before that.
  2. Toys out for spring cleaning.
  3. I took a chance on the Lseat covers. It took about 4 weeks to get them. The back seat was a good fit but the front covers were patterned for a different model of Recaro. That made for a bit of alteration to get them to fit. The bolsters for the bottoms are a different shape and needed some repadding to fit.

  8. I thought that this topic had been addressed earlier, but I can't seen to find it anywhere. Sorry if it is a duplicate. The leather on my seats is dry and cracking beyond all attempts to rejuvenate with saddle soap, mink oil, leather treatments, etc. Not horrible, but not up my standards. The door panels, dash and headliner are okay. A victim of the Florida sun before I bought the car, I'm afraid. That said, I have planned to contact Lseat.com for leather replacement covers for the Recaros up front and for the back bench. They show two different front seat cover styles. The one they call
