Thanks for all the comments. I am now relegated to standing in the cold garage and looking at it all for the next three months.

Carful removing rubber-plastic Porsche badge...mine was fine but I noticed it could easily be damaged even if you pry it off from the back side...take your time and do not damage this difficult to replace item.

Roughed up the the back side with 220 grit...washed with dawn and scrubbed off any dust, dirt or residue. Off to the paint shop (with ducktail) tommorow.
hi, I was able to take the middle cushion out as they were just secured by the Velcro....but the first picture with the two bolt like fasteners near the bottom...how do I release these please?

thanks

OT here, but...

Is it possible to install the upper portion of the 996 GT3 seats (with the hard backs) onto the lower portion of the standard 993 seats?

It's a good question, I'm also thinking about doing that.

I have one quick question about this. How did you guys remove the porsche sign on the back? I'm deathly afraid of scratching it up.

TIA!

I ended up carefully peeling them with the dull side of an exacto knife so as not to cut them up. Then I stored them on some sticker paper until the hardbacks come back from the shop.
