In Topic: Seat Perforation

18 October 2017 - 07:30 AM

I never understood which years/models got each specific interior.   My buckskin 88 starion seats don't have the pinhole perforations....

Restoring my front seats is on my list as well but it'll have to wait.  I have a set of black cloth 89 seats I'll use for the time being.  

What is the approximate cost to redo both fronts?

BTW Eric, those seats look great!

A lot of people don't know this simple, but very effective trick..... anytime you are cutting, grinding, or machining aluminum, use the wax from a plain old white candle to lubricate the cutting. It will extend tool life as well as speed the process along and make the cutting process work much smoother. There are plenty of cutting fluids and pastes that also work for this. But, why spend extra money for that when a cheap old fat candle from the dollar store works just as well for pennies instead of dollars?

Great to know!   Thank you for the tip!

It is that way the closer you get to Mumbai/Bombay. Considerably less security in Nagpur, Chennai, or Ahmedabad, but just about all hotels are gated.

I was in Mumbai, Varoda (about 45 mins south of Ahmedabad), and Bangalore.   The hotel security protocol was the same in all three places.   As far as airports; I was surprised that the security was much more intense in the small airport of Varoda than Mumbai and Bangalore.  They had armed military at every door, ran my checked luggage not once but twice through x-rays and, and thoroughly went thru my carry on before boarding.   Then apparently they forgot to add a tag to my carry-on and I was sent back to security to have it re-inspected.  In all of the airports, you cannot even enter the terminal unless you have an airline ticket.  So family/friends/drivers, etc. must wait outside.
