Ok so I have been working on a 77 242 for a few months now. I wasn't going to show anyone anything until it was done. But I just picked up my seats and they are so f*cking cool I can't not show them off. Thanks to Mike at http://www.driveduncan.com/ for the great work. The kid is my age (22).

Can't put a price on art. If I knew the final result was going to be that nice I'd say that's more than a fair deal for them.

Great looking seats, man. Enjoy them! :)

You said it Harald. I was leery at first to drop the bills, but now that its done I feel that it was more than worth the money spent.
