Quote from: orientrot on 24 May 2023, 07:43 PMFitting leather covers can be a bit more finnicky than fitting MBTex, a good upholstery shop will use steam and heat to stretch the leather to get aftermarket covers to fit more optimally and remove wrinkles.Great info on steaming, thanks. I had no idea. I'm guessing that they steam the inside of the cover to make it stretchier and then it shrinks as it dries. I have a small, easily controlled steam cleaner that could certainly do this. Any thoughts or caveats on how I could screw it up?
I have a set of lumbar pillows, I'll get some pictures and dimensions when I get a chance
Quote from: nathan on 23 May 2023, 09:22 PM#5554 must have literally popped up. This car is synonymous with the forum, previously belonging to Dr William Babe who has some of the seminal posts on the 6.9, including the strut rebuild here. He passed away two years ago. I helped his family sell a couple of his cars but a little strangely, they directed the 6.9 to be sold by another who undervalued it significantly, and the buyer has obviously bought it, cleaned it, and thats it. Now selling it for probably 85k premium on what he bought it. very disappointing for Bills family. The car is not an AMG vehicle, its a Hong Kong import originally owned by the governor of Hong Kong (he must have been balling!). Its been in WA since the late 90s. Bill did all the bits himself including getting the speedo plate printed, he made a few for other members too as he was that sort of gentleman. I wouldn't have valued the car at this by quite a bit, but it was a high 5 figure car and im disappointed his family is not getting the money from the sale evidently.
