I wouldn't ever attempt to change it out just because I like the white too much. Plus it's 1 of 8 with the black/white combo so that's kind of cool.

Great story! I bet you are just looking for excuses to drive it, hope that does not fade. I say redo in Houndstooth as what is on there now was never available on anything but a std htp. Your car would have come with comfort weave originally.

I'll likely go back to original if I replace the seat covers. Not sure why the PO went this way but it could be that these are all he could find when this car was restored back in the early '00s

I just have to make sure my wife never finds my account summary on your site Don :whistle:
