It is a seat out of my 72 VW Beetle Roadster convertible
but I agree with you it kind of looked good in there and about half the weight of the OEM seat

Sweet Beetle.
I think the seats look pretty good in your Bullitt also. If they were in black I would say to stick with those.

My first reaction was, Oh please tell me he didn't put Tan Leather seats in his Bullitt" ... of course, this is just my personal opinion, I do not like Tan. Never have, never will. But, that's just me.

My final reaction was ... thanks for the tutorial, but why would I do all that, when I learned the same lesson you learned, without all the pain and wasted weekends?
I'll just give everything a real deep clean and spray the raw metal on the seat chassis.
I'm no dummy

I know you are not saying that I am a dummy, so I will say this, sometimes you have to try something
to see how it goes. It does not always work out how you planned etc.

Also I could not find any information at all on the net as to how to do the swop.

Overall, I think some people will now see this and have a go, others will see this and say it is
not for them.
Many things I do is because I am not in the USA and do not have the luxury of a local dealer or shop
who can do the sort of work you guys take for granted in the states.
Sometimes we have to do things ourselves, or not at all.

One guy said he can get a seat professionally covered in the states for 350 USD.
The upper and lower for one seat probably cost me over twice that with air freight and 30% import tax
to support my Government....

Also I like to play with my BULLITT and I like to post things for all Bullitheads and to do my bit for
Bullitts here in Europe,
Afterall is this is the "International Mustang Bullitt Owners Club."

I really hope some Bullitt owners will find my post a big help in making them decide if to do the
swop or send out to a shop to get the work done.

Bob

I'm sorry ... no I CERTAINLY was NOT calling you a dummy.
and I'm sorry if it sounded like that.

Now I've gone and offended one of my Bullitt friends.
I guess I AM a dummy.

I just meant that I will learn from you and not attempt it. It most certainly would not have a happy outcome if I tried it.

I was trying to be funny, which, as usual, gets me in trouble. Especially when said in "writing" instead of in person.

I am not offended at all that is why I stated, I know you are not calling me a dummy, you are a friend
and will remain as such.

I actually thought it looked a big task but I have said to many people at many shows now...
This car is not a Swiss watch !
