who's re-upholestering these? i didn't think you could.  I'd love to do a set in vinyl/leather... 

A local European car upholstery shop is doing them. They are using 1/8" foam backed headliner fabric that matches the correct color code with a blind stitch. They said it was no problem, I'll post the results. Almost anything would be better than the beat-up ones I had.

Done. Came off easier than I thought. There remains a slight ghost which I hope will fade away.

 

 That's strange.  I figured the ghosting would be darker since it was covered by the sticker, but it's just the opposite.  Sun exposure can make plastic darker?  Not sure I knew that.

Yeah, I thought it was leftover adhesive, but I scrubbed them good with WD40 and a toothbrush. Guess it's just a plastic 'suntan' . Hope it doesn't take another 23 years in the sun to blend. Still better than the sticker, I think.
