Leather Skin Swap Question

259 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  sbaert
Recently swapped out my worn out MB-Tex driver's side skin with a nice one I pulled from a local junk yard. Did the passenger to driver side swap, albeit, from the donar car; worked.

Probably more elbow grease than just pulling the whole seat, but a whole lot cheaper ...and easier to transport.

Anyway, left me wondering, are the later leather skins a direct swap (over the MB-Tex style) or not?

I see there's padding and pleating differences but lots of that's in the batting sewn to the skin. Anyone out there done this?

The later seat frames are slightly different, notably in different springs, hardware, etc.
