Hi dino426. :wavey: Try here www.katzkin.com. They are not hard to do (of course, all things are relative) if you want to take the time to learn and do it right.

Good luck. :cheers:

Hi dino426. :wavey: Take another look. The Fusion is listed. I checked before I posted the link. Contact them and see what the pricing is.

As far as how hard it is, it depends on how skilled and determined you are, and we can't answer that. What kind of skills do you have concerning automotive mods? Ideally, you will need to remove the seats from your car. That will take some work, including electrical connectors and wrench work. If you have the side airbags, you will have some other concerns as far as the removal and installation. You will need some specialized tools to remove the old, and install the new covers, etc, etc..

It is entirely possible to do it yourself, but an extra set of skilled hands would certainly be helpful. If you are leery, or do not have someone you know who is familiar with this type of work, you may be better off paying a professional.

Also, while I am not familiar with them, the company which RiverFusion linked to looks good also. I'm not sure what the pricing would be for either.

Good luck! :cheers:

I think I'm just going to go and break into Abbot's car - it'll be cheaper AND I'll get the interior I want :)

See, after Christmas the plan was to go over to his house so that I could "record the sound coming from my Magnaflows" over at his house with the Christmas present he would hopefully be getting......now my cover is blown about my REAL intentions! DANG!!!!!

Seriously though, keep me posted if you get that recorder. I'll bring beer as a peace offering :)

Kinda ontopic, is anyone else obsessive about maintaining their leather? My wife makes fun of me constantly. I clean/condition it every 2 weeks. The rear seats (where no one sits...) are like a mirror...
