After I unbolted the seats,I carefully lifted the seats up high enough just to connect the fasteners and hooks..I left the electric cables connected..


The leaf seats are actually very easy to unbolt compared to other seats I have installed in other cars..

I did the same. It was easy to move the seats around to gain proper access without stressing the attached cables. The cables are anchored in in such a way that you'd have to pull them OUT of the anchors to put any stress on the connections themselves. Use a little care, and you'll should be fine.

I went with same color combination (EDIT: not really, went with #21 and #11) and had them installed by WO in Costa Mesa. Here are a couple of photos that WO took after the install ...

Are you sure you went with Cobalt blue piping like rawhog? Your piping in the pics seems much darker than Cobalt blue. I have Tan and Cobalt blue piping and my Cobalt blue is a much lighter blue than yours in your pics. Your piping looks like Navy blue.

My bad :oops: . Piping is charcoal (#11) in our ride. Raw wrote "cobalt", I saw "charcoal".

Got my seats. Charcoal with grey piping. The seats look nice but yet to install. I think they would look nicer after install. The installation is going to be the difficult part. surprised there were no instructions..

No instructions were least of my surprises... The company seems to track their orders on a piece of paper, with no indications when it would ship or tracking numbers or invoices in the box of any kinda... I wasn't even been given an order # and they looked up my order by last name... at least seats are nice quality, although the fit could've been better.
