  1. Thanks. That is what I thought. I knew the armrests were leather and the white part on the seat. However, I could only see a very small part of the turquoise without taking the black cover off. I figured it was most likely leather though since the other parts are. Thanks for the help.
  2. I own and operate a classic car upholstery shop, so I will probably return it back to the stock pattern in the future.

When weight is applied to the rear or front of the car, the car suspension will compensate itself ba
