Yeah, you need to remove the vents and the tombstone first but after that the pad just pulls off (go gently as it's quite fragile).  It's retained by some black rubbery/silicone goop but thankfully it's not that awful stuff behind the door cards and isn't sticky once it's peeled off.

Thanks mate, i really regretted selling the s spec 2. So this is the replacement. I feel bad ive put her back outside for winter as ive got a project in garage.
Shes got her cover on so roof protected and im certain ive fix the passenger floor leak on the roof. But the covers in place just in case.

Ive seen some nice velour G limited seats...

 

https://www.ebay.co....353.m1438.l2649

 

Im currently using mk2 seats as mine were tatty and after 2 years in garage are now mingeing....

 

So the mk2  dont sit as low as mk1s....Im assuming these velour G limited seat will sit as low as ordinary mk1s? 

 

I think they will be a nice addition to oem+ resto of my s spec.

 

can someone confirm....

What a cock...i am....so annoyed.
A couple of weeks ago i fitted the new cover and the rear parts you poke in the shut line along the boot...i did that and secured on the boot rubber...as just on gap pulled through.
Well ive flooded the boot...and the battery stray hook thing has rotted through...
All drying out now and some rust convertor in area to see if i can get bolts out...ive got a spare somewhere in garage but cant find it atmo...apart from the battery hook thingy all ok..

Had a garage tidy amonth ago and i think the spare bracket got culled...ive searched the garage and no joy...but the cover is now secure as adjusted the boot lid on the hinges...storm ciara is testing it and it dry as a bone in there now...still annoyed with myself.

I put the same G-Ltd blue/grey Alcantara seats into my previous Mk.1 and didn't notice any change of height.  Liked them a lot.  No height issues even with a Mk.2 soft top (which has a couple of cm less headroom inside due to the second layer of fabric under the ribs as well as the main roof fabric above them).

Mmmmm contemplation time....
Ive just sold my RX8 powered Westfield. Im thinking about trying a mx5 turbo....for track work....
Ive got the 7fd but im getting too scared to track it how i want to which 10/10s on track as well it has fresh paint and the value keeps on rising.....

I might sell my eunos springtime...and get a turbo 1.

Raa i dunno...will i ever find an oem eunos again for sensible money...
I sold the westfield as its a 4 wheel motorbike and some ill health etc...owned 7 years id scratched the kit car itch.
Id bought a civic track car done some trackdays init had some fun...but fwd is gay....sell that too. Wanna scratch the 5 turboooo itch!
Whatya reckon...a41a4c1acc6bfd09a42e85e6d9ca6fc2.jpg712e8d40a79e66cb826268432b8b466b.jpg

Ive been thinking and after lockdown im gonna put up for sale. She is waiting togo in bodyshop for some paint warranty work and then full mot and cambelt waterpump etc for new owner....
Price wise its gotta be £5k i think despite the 130kmiles on her....it is mint and oem original.
Whatya reckon? Too much...?
Im gonna keep the 10ae and my mk1turbo s spec.

Quick wash and cheeky spin around town...
Doesnt handle like 10ae but its much more compliant...a gentlemans ride. Left with feeling youd be mad to sell it.fac2d13092be8af5b3ba60242e194fa4.jpg
