    With the seat skins washed and clean I can now reassemble my two front seats and add my seat heaters.

    Started with one of the seat backs.

    Back together. Now for the bottom.

    Add the cover.

    Then its time to assemble the seat and add the wiring for the seat heaters.

    All nice and tidy.

    Thanks!

    The Dash isn't all that hard if you take your time and be patient. I'd suggest taking pictures along the way and marking screws.

    Just think of all the money you save doing it yourself too.

    So true, both about taking your time and saving gobs of money. Taking lots of pictures helps, as does labeling wiring pigtails, and taping screws to the parts they go with. I did mine two summers ago. If anyone needs a KK version of the dash disassemble / heater core, here it is: http://www.lostjeeps.com/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=104&t=82363

    Very intreated in the hood wrap you did / it is just what I am wanting to do. How did you measure for that look? Do you have the pre-install measurements?

    I did not precut the vinyl for hood wrap. It's actually quite easy to do.

    You'll need some knifeless cutting tape.

    Clean your surface where you'll be wrapping, and apply the knifeless tape in your design, make sure the knifeless tape is sticks out so you can start it. Also if you are not going to wrap over the edge of the hood you'll need to overlap your knifeless tape to finish your cut. Hopefully that makes sense. Once you apply the knifeless line to your pattern you install the wrap over it. When you have the wrap down and finished you pull the knifeless line and it cuts your pattern out. Then you just heat the edges and reapply.

    I'm sure there are a ton of videos on it out there. It's pretty easy.

    How COOL is that. Wondering how you did the custom fit with such clean lines. Being that I am 72 years old, I think I will get someone to do this for us.

    I just followed the body lines on the hood, pretty easy.

    Thanks though for the compliments.
