I see http://www.clipsandfasteners.com has our windshield molding clips, awesome. Trying to remember what the clips look like for the molding outside the door windows? Same? Been years since I've taken that off and do not remember.  

Also, back in college I asked a shop how much it would be to get my seats reupholstered, his answer was too much for a broke college kid. Anyone have luck getting your seats and door panels reupholstered?

Did this include new foam, or just the pleather skin?  My seats are in good shape, but leather is just kinda hard, and padding is flat & not cushy.  Further down the list, but just curious.

Now Done:  7.5:1 .35 Wiseco rebuild w/ crank scraper; 274 Magna roller cam & 1.55 rockers; mod port AMC head; 1mm>valves; Innovate WB; GM alt/rewired; 3" 240 alum radiator, elec fans; BMW X5 oil separator exh. crankcase vent; gas tank renewed; D2s; sway/strut bars; LT1 T56 clutch & trans swap w/ Fidanza; 4.22 rear; 265 Kumos on SHP rears; new steering pump/box/lines & coupler fix: http://www.starquest...howtopic=139558; full dash/console rewire - Autometer, push start, etc.
In Progress: breakin & tune
Future: Enjoy driving again; meets & local shows; AC; WG reroute from open vent to exh; Water/Meth?; body/paint

I was quoted $500 a seat for genuine leather and refoaming/forming as necessary.  I haven't executed on it yet.

The door clips are likely proprietary and are a mixed bag when you pull off the trim piece - they will either stay on the door or stay with the molding.  They will not break Just remove the vertical one first pulling towards the center of the window, not outwards.  The clips are strong metal and as long as you don't remove pulling outwards, you should be fine - recommend rolling window down first as well to aid in removal.  The upper one be careful as it will easily deform or twist  prying inwards a little along the length, then repeat slowly prying it off towards the center  - get over eager and you'll damage it.

On the doors, I used Nissan trim clips.  Fit with a little convincing
