Yeah, that looks great. I'm looking for a sedan rear 2002/2003 seat to match the 2002 WRX seats I have up front also. I have a WRX shifter linkage but need to get the leather boot and shifter knob also.

How much did the recovering of the door panels cost if you don't mind me asking?

Also, sorry to hear about the confusion with the 2004 rear seat. That would tick me off big time.

I uploaded larger photos and some befor photos.

The interior door panals where done for something like $20.

I did it trading spaces style. Bought some office car fabric and some furniture spray glue. Cut out the shape of the panal and glued it on. You can tuck the fabric under the stock clothe and it looks pretty good.

There is no interior shops around my area so I had to DIY. I am going to redo them though with a fabric I found. Looks like the 2002 seat fabric in black plus it has a backing which will allow me to use a heavier glue.

bumper for a great mod! i would like to know the detail too!

like how to disassemble the door panels etc......

"Please don't ask why I didn't get matching front and rear seats. A member of Nasioc.com posted a crappy pic and said they where blue. I thought how could you get that wrong... send them. A week later I got them. Wrong color and No brackets (he said they where complete) In the end he told me to f-off. Nice!!! "

Nice.

I'll be waiting for the update on the door panels.

FWIW:
When I installed my 2002 WRX seats into my 2001 L I left the wrx lower seatbelt portion attached to the seats. After installing the first seat I realized my L seat belts wouldn't click into the WRX portion.

So I had to remove the seat and swap the lower seat belt portion from my L seats onto the WRX seat.

More stuff added. Worst case you can laugh at all the stuff I had to go through for most of the installs.

Yup...same thing happened to me when I got my free WRX seats. Of course I noticed when I went to click in...

Oh well, I don't have that car anymore and I have these seats now.

Sweet. Thanks. I'll have to try that shifter boot mod when I install the WRX shifter linkage, and the door panel advice is great.
