Looks like a great project. Odd how the seats seemed to change color, eh? I hope you can get them back to original, because burgundy is a nice unique color.

An spg kit will look great on this car too.

supposedly the seats don't look as discolored in person.

I already was shown a nice leather kit that should get those looking decent though.

thanks everyone. Yes, I was amazed at how clean, like the engine is and the body. The seller said it's dirty and will clean up well. I thought that was a good sign because it looks pretty good dirty!
