ok got some calibra leather the fronts went in a doddle then it got 2 cold to start the rears...

So basically wat do i need to do?? the corsa upper back is a full bench and not a 60/40 like a calibra.. can i use both parts from the calibra or do i use upper calibra lower corsa

stealing the thread her for a sec, as i always do,

the opel gsi has a split rear seat, what are the chances it would match the calibra enought that it would fit with out too much hassle and pain?

Not all GSI's had split rears mine didnt, easiest thing to do is cover the corsa seats in the material off the calibra seats, fits snug
