Cost to recover 2 front seats in leather is $1,000 to $1,200
So cost to recover full set is more

Price that most eseries guys would want to pay $400 for full set - so yeah very very expensive for most eseries guys lol

more like $2900 for 2 front seats if you want them custom made with full electrics

They look great man, I bet they hold you in rather well, possibly better than the EB/ED Recaro's?

I spent almost $300 getting the trim repaired on my drivers seat in the EB Ghia (full leather recaro), had the trim redone on outside edge & the foam rebuilt too. I have been quoted $1200 to have the seats fully rebuilt & retrimmed, my choice of colors. That was leather where you sit ya bum & vinyl around the outside bolsters like the stock ones are.

If I had the cash I'd get it done in a heatbeat, but like most E series guys my budget is limited. Not that there is much wrong with my leather seats atm, I'd just like them like new instead of say 90% new condition, which is still great for their age, having seen feature car's in Street Fords with worse front seats than mine lol.

Cheers

ToranaGuy

Very nice seats. Looked at doing similar here about two years ago. Was looking at over $2000. More than the car is realistically worth...!

Sigh.
