so i got some callibra front seats and decided id never seen full leather interior in a corsa B before, so thought i'd have a go at it....





the back seats are seat covers FOR THE TIME BEING. until i can afford to get them retrimmed, because i've been told the calli seats are a real pain to fit in the back.





i did the rear cards myself, but the spray adhesive wasn't strong enough and after a few days has come appart from the contours on the cards, anyone got any ideas on a really strong dry adhesive i could use?

im going to do the front cards next week, might make a tutorial for them aswell.

let me know what you all think anyways :)

should look good when its done mate, nice idea!

one thing i would suggest (strange as it may sound) would be bathroom sealer, its pretty sticky and comes in handy cartridges, pretty cheap too so you can buy loads.

saying thats pretty strange, my mate and me found that a great thing to use for sticking small things around the car (we did his side repeaters with it!) is wallpaper adhesive! stuck for a good 3 years now :)

its all a bit worn, but good stuff for trying!
its only the front seats that are worn, but i paid 30 quid for them so i cant complain really mate.
and iv got a mate who works for a retrimming place and he said he can retrim them for me at work when he does the back seats.

also a bit of leather cleaner will bring the black colour back up and make them look less worn i recon :)

£30 is a bargain, especially considering they're leather.

ye the sport interiors nice, but the leather interior is really comfy, and its more bucketed than the sport interior, holds you in better.

tbh i'd rather have anything other than my stnadard trip interior, and hadnt seen this done before lol

Well at least there's not many about with that interior so it's fairly individual.
