    Looks nice Boysie, lovely colour leather too. Tell me do you have a very small passenger in the seat. as the belt is fastened. ;)

    Not only small but very patient.
    They don't appear to have moved during the whole re-covering process :-o

    The red looks much better IMHO

    I have a spare armrest complete, so it was off with black and on with the red one
    I am really please with the outcome, i suggested he made it in two pieces like the
    seats to show stitching, the plain black was to bland
    He has done the odd job for me, handy man to know, clever people about

    Looks great Boysie and much nicer co-ordinated :-bd

    As far as the seatbelt goes I saw nothing amiss - Zippy's passenger seat belt is always fastened - it's something I've alwasy done :-\

    I really want an arm rest, but looking into them i was not prepared to pay that price for one.

    I am in the middle of a cheap alternative to one

    will post a how to when i am finished.

    a wee test of what it will look like.

    I do but having chatted with the guy who did my roof he politely explained to me that being 5' 2" it would have to extend over the handbrake for my elbow to reach.... Still like the look though.
