been away doing the interior, didn't realise you had come back with this. Basically got it done, followed the how to for mk1 seats but just ignored bit about back board. The how to is still very useful for removing the lumbar wheel. Duncans instructions above are fairly consistent with how I did it.
End result is pretty good, I have to say, for someone like myself who just had a go. I would say, though, that you *must* invest in some hog ring pliers. These are about Ã‚Â£14 for Sealey pliers.
Then another Ã‚Â£6 for the rings off ebay. Don't bother with genuine mg ones, just get a big bag of them. You will fluff them quite often - you also need 3 hands to do some hog rings on the back.
You will need to have power to electric seats too.
Have a few plasters ready - the metal is sharp on the back of the chair
Lastly, take your time. It is work that demands patience and concentration.
But very satisfying.
thanks for the help.
