DIY Pecca Leather Install

I got these off ebay from GuideMego. They are pecca leather seats. Overall I'm happy with the install. I think it looks a lot better then oem cloth. I took me about 20 hours to install with a steam machine. The hardest part was top of front seats. Headrests were not to bad.

Few things I do not like.
First GuideMego says the warranty policy is 3 years or 36,000 and advertises it as a DIY. But the warranty card that comes with the seats says its only covered if its installed by a Pecca Authorized Dealer and there is no authorized dealer stamp on the card.

The headrests were not to bad but the plastic mounting bands on the pecca front headrests were bigger then stock, so they did not clip in very well so I could not get a good tight fit.

Looks good, nice job. I wouldn't have had the patience to take on that project.

Re: DIY Pecca Leather Install

Looks good. Did you have to use a steam machine to soften the leather to install it?

Re: DIY Pecca Leather Install

Thanks all.

very snug fit, i had to use the stream machine to soften the leather to pull it over the seats. I paid 540 for the leather. I got mopar heated seats kit ( $320 ?) also since i would have the covers already off. I did a little each night after everyone went to bed, took me about 1 1/2 week.

Re: DIY Pecca Leather Install

Where did you order the leather from and when you installed the heated seats did it come with a stock looking button?
