Front and rear seats

Post by Peanut1982 »

Howdy y'all... Well I've caught the tercel bug again and am working to get my 4th one up and running. I even got the "parts" car running. Love these little trucks. Just wondering if anyone out there has a set of seats avalible for this latest resurection? I found a set at my local junkyard, but they want 200 bones for the set (front seats and back bench). Is that a good deal? They ain't pretty, but better than what I've got... BTW, I live out on the western slope of Colorado....

$200 is fair if they're in good shape. If they're just dirty that's ok, you can use a little rug doctor to clean them up nicely. But if they're torn to shit, they're not worth anything IMO.

Are they SR5? then Its a fair deal but I wouldn't be buying the DL seat for that price.

When you sew it, it will probably be easiest to remove the fabric and turn it inside out to repair it. I had a friend do some sewing repairs on some seats for me years ago, turned out great. Anyway, removing the seat covers is a little annoying but if you only have to do one seat that shouldn't take too long. Here is a thread on how to do that.
