My seat covers have basically gone out of the window, after 4 months the guy basically told me he'll give me my deposit back, what a complete wanker ...especially with all the BS he has been spinning me about having to re-do them, AusPost tracking no's etc etc.

We'll see if I even get my deposit back..

Remember the name, PROSEAT ...and do NOT go there!!!!! :x

Just scored these..
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... fresh=true

Hence the question about AU seats into EL in my other topic..

These should slot very nicely into my car, and only leaves me to get the rears retrimmed, or matching Black seat covers made up for them. I've already got a set of EF Fairmont rear seats with headrests, so those ones will get the treatment ...doesn't matter if it's the Ebay Ultimate Auto Trim covers (NOT Proseat, lol) as long as they're Black, so I can't go too far wrong, haha.

At least me (and my front passenger's) a*** will be polishing real leather, lol.. :wink:

4 months later, and with the guy telling me he's gonna refund my money last week, these turn up today ...talk about a spanner in the works, lol..

Even he was surprised when I rang him, so much for keeping tabs on his own business..

Exactly as I ordered, and they actually look and feel pretty good!

Now I gotta decide, EL or AU, lol :lol:

Those seats are exactly what I would do of I were to retrim. Subtle that goes with the rest of the interior. Def go with el so much nicer that the au interior. Nice car It will be great to see some 1/4 mile runs!!

Been a while between pics, lol

These pics were taken today just after regassing the AC system (airbox temporarily off) ...all initially behaving normally and working well using the BF AC compressor and the factory TX valve system with my EL ECU. Car is being taken for a decent drive tomorrow to check that AC switching / AC idle / Thermo fan operation etc are all working as they should.

Cruise control is currently a different story, having a number of issues with getting the Clutch & Brake, and steering wheel switches working with the now re-written BF ECU, which is apparently picking up my gearbox speed signal fine ...but for some reason the cruise is not switching in or working. Jacob is spending another few days working on it, but if he doesn't have any joy, we will forfeit cruise control at least knowing that a damn good crack was had at it.

So car is not very far away now from being ready for the trip home :wink:

if all else fails could your existing cruise be connected to the throttle pedal?

Mark, I would like to know if the cruise was able to be activated, as this is one of the functions I will be keeping in my conversion.

Cheers
