Absolutely incredible. They look stunning.
Stunning! Now you have me thinking.
The seats are achingly gorgeous. So-so much want in a few pictures.
Afraid i'm too anal to have the 'standard' Renault tissue-paper covered versions. These are amazing though.
They look completely OEM which I love. Its how the seats should have been made in the first place. Leather bolsters are so much better than the tissue paper bolsters.
Really nice having seat covers embroidered with Renaultsport and recaro too.
The seats look absolutely brilliant! Exactly as they should have come in the first place. If I decide to keep my car it's definitely on my to do list!
The Recaros look immense trimmed like that, epic! I can't believe what a state they were in before though, some people have no sympathy/care with them!!
Marc would it be rude to ask the cost of the refurb on the seats?
I'd like some idea too.
Makes me think of buying the roughest set out there at a comparitively good price and going this route....
Fantastic thread, must be the most spotless 197 out there, how very satisfying indeed!
Those seats though... there are no words.
Have deep deep pockets and don't expect a lot of change
I would like to point out that it was still cheaper doing this than it was to buy two new recaro seats from Renault
Well worth it mate they look gorgeous. Are you doing the rear seats as well?
They look the biz mate, not much change from 1.5-2k I'd guess
Which although undoubtedly a large amount of money - is chump-change to some people. And no more than an Akropovic, manifold and fitting for example. Without a remap too....
I'd still like to know the ball-park figure as i'm sure many would. Would seem to me there must be a few like me who wouldn't consider / hate / would like to rid themselves of the standard Recaro cloth; but would of course love them in this trim.
Either way they are absolutely gorgeous
More of an update today, Managed to get the seats Temp fitted so I could move the car and get it up on Axel stands and get the wheel arches out.
The passenger front rear section was smashed to bits and there was virtually nothing these so managed to get a good intact second hand one.
I was also going to attempt to take the 197 rear diffuser off but a couple of the bolts holding it on where very very rusty and I did not want to snap or break them so I will use some tigers pi$$ (WD40) on them over the next few days and give them some wire brush treatment also.
Here is todays pictures (With seats temp fitted also)
Looks really nice!
Have you had some of the engine bay powder coated?
Dont do powder coating, Its all been vapour blasted with ceramic powder and hot water.
Take a look at page one and the stuff thats been done.
Sorry bud didn't see the earlier pictures. That vapour blasting is the real deal. Better than new. Lovely project. Enjoy
What exhaust Marc?
Its a full Miltek exhaust system from CAT back Craig
