This, time a squillion. Any interior which wilfully attempts to hypnotise its occupants has to be applauded. Also, might help with the laydeez.

You need to do the interior Felix. Glad you got the sunroof seal sorted, the lad is still searching ebay after you took him for a spin. Any progress with the oil leak?

This has been said a lot of times already, but what a fantastic read. I love your 924, and whilst its not quite the same I love driving my 205 with that 80s music blaring - it just fits! Don't sell it, you'll regret it!

I was browsing eBay in the build up to the GP today when I saw an early 924 being broken just up the road from me. Moments later, I was driving over, with an open mind. Came away with a bargain set of seats, 1/3rd the price I was going to pay for the pascha. They came out of a 45k miles car, which I can believe, as they're mint and the foam is so plush! Aside from looking great, it's made a difference to driving too, as the bolters put up some resistance and the rest of the seat is supportive. I also picked up a set of rear hatch struts, so now my hatch stays open! With the wonderful weather, I popped to B&Q to get some paint for my rusty wiper arms too. Another satisfying day of 924 ownership for me, in fact, I've been out in the evening to put £15 petrol in 3 times in a row, just because.

Just put the whole interior into the boot, as you do with a small sportscar.



I found £4.68 in total.



Just the dash lets it down now, something which never used to bother me.





It's hard to appreciate the fabric in the photographs, but it looks very smart with my black & white colour scheme. Finding a rare, early set of seats in perfect condition and fitting it to my daily used, last of the line 2 litre cars before anyone else in the 924 club got their hands on them gives me a twisted thrill.

I wish I had a friend like you OP - passionate about cars, a talented writer and worthy muse.

Great thread. WRA.

Great car too. Instantly opened ebay to search for 924's.

Love the herringbone interior, and think it'll give you less of a headache than the pasha! Are you going to make us all sick and say how much you paid for it? Love this thread and it just shows how much fun can be had on a budget with the right attitude and approach to motoring.

I'd give the gear stick another go through - it just doesn't look right.

I'll have another go at the gear stick sometime, the creases shouldn't be there. The plastic part on the top has to be pryed out and is very, very tight and brittle.

I paid less than £100 for all of the seats, the mounting brackets, rear hatch struts and a mint luggage cover. I left the door cards behind since they weren't cut for speakers or electric windows. If you take off the value of the other parts, it's about £50 for all the seats. I could sell them on and make some quick money but I'd rather they were in my car.

Excellent writing as always.
Did I miss what your plans are for the old seats?
