    Hello everybody,

    I need a little bit of help: I'm planning to give my new 110 a make-over to get it back to its original state. Only thing I would like to change are the front seats, as I plan to travel in that car and it would be nice to have a little more comfort than the original minimalistic low back seats.

    I might replace the steering wheel as well, if I find a better looking one. But that's not too important.

    Now, my problem is this: In Germany we have special regulations for classic cars and I would like to make my 1985 110 a classic car. But that means that I can only use parts that could have been used between 1985 and 1994. I've been googling for a while, but I'm having such a hard time finding out, which seats (or steering wheels) would have been available in 1994 (or between 1985 and 1994). :confused:

    Can you help me? Do you have any recommendations?

    Thank you! :)

    The biggest restriction you will find regarding the steering wheel is that the splines on the column changed during the production run, so later wheels may not fit.
    Early Range Rover four spoke steering wheels are the same design, but leather covered. If you can find one, there will be an un-worn wheel under the tatty leather.
