A tip regarding seats and repairs.

If you can find a salvage yard that has your seats but are in poor condition ask if you can slice the seat backs out and can buy the head rests. The seat back is vinyl and can be used for the console lid and the head rest front is leather and can be used for repairs on the bolsters on your seats. Match is perfect and way cheaper then buying new leather from the upholstery shop.

 A great story, thanks for sharing.

I helped a guy with a tan interior Reatta years ago. The door panel I found was nicer then mine, but as his was worse then my existing panel I let him buy it. He never installed it, sold the car and left the forum. I will never make that mistake again. 

 However I do have other tan interior parts. PM me with anything you need.
