I'm just in the middle of talking to Bob this week regarding getting the front seat skins , anyone have any feedback regarding these ?
Ie quality and fit , is it pretty easy to fit these ?
I bought them once in tan for my old 850R, the quality is excellent, I was very very happy with them.
Just pulled the trigger , did you fit them yourself ?
I did, it wasn't too bad but definitely requires some fiddling. Bunnings sell the hog rings and pliers for fixing the cover to the frame, they're marketed as netting clips:
Legend 😎 , i'll get on it . There is a pdf on the site for fitting them , not had a look at that yet..
I thought all was going well and did think customs would hold it when it arrived at Perth . Not Melbourne oh I do love the long wait
Did get the tool and clips , thanks James 👍
Finally heard from AU post on friday , spent saturday printing the forms then sent them back . Got a reply today , bloody $377 robbing barstewards want now . S hopefully they are on the way here at last .
What did they end up running you all things considered Steve? I'm debating on whether to commit... Keen to hear your thoughts on them when they arrive too, particularly the comparison of the suede/Alcantara! Cheers, Tom
Hey Tom , running me ? Are we talking cost ? Just over $1500 Au plus the $377 to customs . Yep pretty keen now to see them . Will post some photos up for sure 👍
I have wondered if it's worth buying a seat at a time to get around the customs charges but then be paying postage twice hey
May be cheaper to get them redone here in Australia.
Iceton knows some who have done it.
Had 2 quotes over here before I bought from Elwood . One was $1000 a seat the other was $ 1300 a seat
Thank you mate! Yes, that was what i meant 😂... Looking forward to seeing the pics when done!
woop woop , arrived on thursday . Will attack it today ........
Pretty easy so far but I'm off to get some decent cutters for the hog rings as mine are pretty old and blunt .
Least the instructions have a sense of humour lol
Get some beers in 😎
I was expecting some smutty remark over the 2nd last paragraph hahaha.
In reality tho, do you have friends? Haha.
Cheeky git he he ......... no I don't have any friends 😄
Mmm, or is it 'whom......
I'd ( or should it be I would ) go with who 👍
New snips makes life so much easier
My trusty engineers pliers that came in my extensive boilermaker toolkit from ALCOA back in the day are great but in the three pairs of side cutters I have they are all junk and it shits me every time!
LOVE the orange seats , just like later R with Atacama!!!!
Yeah I'm thinking fcuk the new leather and just go with the orange foam , where's my beer 😄
