Christal recently contacted us asking if NICO would be at ZdayZ 2015. We hadn’t planned to be there, but we knew we’d have lots of NICO members there. When she found this out, she wanted to know what she could do to help spread the NICO love around the event. So we shipped a box full of goodies to her to hand out.
Interior-Innovations provides OEM-quality original-look or custom seat upholstery for the entire Nissan Z lineup – We’ll show you how to install their leather seat upholstery on a 350Z Enthusiast model!
Face it, you didn’t buy a 350Z for the cargo space. That doesn’t mean you have to settle for an inconvenient design. This product is a must-have for the serious 350Z owner!

Cover/cushion separation: Place the bottom cushion on the work bench, face down. Using diagonal cutters snip the hog rings and remove the pieces (NOTE: Put on your safety glasses, the hog ring chunks WILL go flying!) Flip the cushion over and fold back the sides of the cover. Observe that the seat cushions have side […]
Alright, let’s get back to some disassembly – On the passenger seat, lift the auxiliary release handle and remove two screws. Lift the back portion of the cover and dress the release assembly back through the cover. Fold the back cover to the front to expose the seat frame. Lift the foam rubber to expose […]
Welcome back – Let’s start taking things apart (and don’t forget to take pictures, and put your hardware in a container so you don’t lose it!) Seat Disassembly: Tilt the seat backs to the aft most position. Place the seats face down to expose the bottom. There is a flap that wraps around a bar […]
