Nice!! Hope the seats all clean up! The bolster on the drivers seat may come back with some proper leather treatment?

 

I will try some leather treatment, it does look a bit rough...

The weather has been great today so I got busy! Before fitting the VTi-S interior, I gave it a bloody good scrub and hoovered the car out. Everything was going smooth and then realized the rear seat catch mechanism isn't the same! It all lines up but doesn't catch. I hope to sort this out soon! I have also fit the middle seat belt wrong which you will notice in the pictures below :lol:

 

I then fit the VTi-S skirts, I absolutely love them. I might not bother respraying the skirts because hints of pirates black pearl comes up in the sun  [smitten.gif]

 

The skirts also make the car look a tad lower, goes to show how desperate I am wanting to lowering her :lol:

 

Whilst it was still day light, I gave her a quick wash :)

Some leather treatment should sort that out nicely. I can't understand why the catches don't locate, same era seats so they should be fine. :unsure:

 

I am a bit confused too, the VTi-S was defiantly an R reg so it's the same year as mine. Oh well another excuse to go scrappy ;) I will apply some leather polish or something tomorrow :)

 

Looking awesome, just needs lowering and do the grill surround in black for an evil look ;)

 

The grill is currently in progress and lowering will be done! ;)

Ah, that explains it, the vtis might have been an R reg but that's a later interior so you will need the clips.

 

*Edit; I didn't realise yours was on an R, I thought it was an X reg for some reason.
