Hi chaps, can't keep me away from the 916 section, despite having sold my Gtv a couple of weeks ago. I miss her & I miss this section of AO, bouyant & busy....
Now, my question relates to PH 2 red leather. I'm toying with using the set I have in my 105 project, the original seats are shafted, new covers are highly pricey, I'm not a purist & I rather like the 916 seats.....
I am, however, wanting to change the headrests on the front seats. The 916 headrests are quite angular and high, whereas the headrests in a 1972 gtv2000 are lower and a bit rounder.
I've bought some red leather rear headrests from a 156, which are in the post - they are a closer match to the originals in my car and I am hoping that they will soften the look of the non original seats a little bit.
Now, I'm struggling to work out how to remove the headrests on a ph2 916 front seat. I've unscrewed (2 screws) the plastic panel on the underside of the 916 headrest. The headrest goes up and down but I can't for the life of me work out how to actually remove the headrest from the seat.
Please can someone help me? And please let's keep this red leather thread peaceable and courteous... or is red leather a bit like a red rag, to a bull?
