Bought some Bose leather seats from 'The Bay of E' a bit scruffy, also what's the best way to get dents out of leather, I believe its coated with some form of PVC, not sure but I don't want to melt them with my trusty heat gun!

Also made a little 'loom' using heat shrink and Tesa tape to wrap it.

Also scanning the World Wide Wait, I found very little info getting passenger headrest to work, series is safer but parallel louder, as it halves the ohm rating of the speakers down to 2 ohms, they're 4 ohm rated. Drivers side works straight away. So I'll be tapping into that.

I think gentle heat is your best option, either a cool iron or hairdryer/heatgun on low with some gentle massaging and patience

Well, the seats are in the heaters seem to work too. I wired the headrest speakers up in parallel and they work too .

Overall a good job hit them with a heat gun and improved them a bit. Got some ‘Poorboys’ leather and vinyl protection on them. Funny thing is you can still make out the word YOKOHAMA in mirror writing where a tyre was resting on the driver’s seat pad bolster. I’m guessing it will improve with time. But they look pretty good. I’m keeping the car for at least 10 years anyway, I’ll be 63 by then.
