Liking that seat.... is it a Recaro?


Looking good on the rebuild though, nice.

Are you going to keep the V8 in it?

Jamie, Yes I am keeping the V8 for now. It starts right up, has good compression all around. I ended up doing some minor maintenance on the powertrain while I had it out: Plugs and wires, misc seals and gaskets, new clutch and a good cleaning. I would like to eventually drop a diesel in it, but I`ll wait a couple more years for that.

Yep. Range rover seats. not much higher than the original seats but way more comfortable. They came with the truck and I had a local upholstery shop re-cover them. Its gray and black tweed. The gray tweed is the same as the headliner. Here is a shot of the old seats and the new rear seat.
