Ok Dr Rock.

Wizard, they are the pics from the listing and then any similar one I could find.
You can get the idea.

They don't look bad in either location but I think I prefer the seat.

Ok Gaz.
They are proper cut stickers, I should imagine they are fairly hard wearing.

The oils on the leather will mean they will just peal right off.
Which means you will need to use a solvent like Brake Cleaner to clean that small area first. Which in turn will damage the leather by drying it out.

Fitted the stickers, they stuck well actually.
Don't know how long they will last though.
Will have to wait and see Paul.

There was six in the pack, have done the rears.

Looks good, I could be tempted if they stay stuck, hope you don't mind being a Guinea pig?

Yo Gaz,
It was a bit of a trial.
If these don't work there are probably other stickers out there that will work, even if they are a bit more expensive.
I like the look of it.

They are still stuck on Gaz and have had various passengers in the car front and back.

Had a seized caliper. Got a new one from Neo.
So that went alright.
Came to do the other side and the spring wouldn't come out.
Tried levering it and tapping it about with a hammer.
So got some pliers on it and it ended up breaking off in the hole.
Managed to drill it out all ok so waiting for new spring.

I had similar, the springs just weld in to the holes,
I was lucky that I could fold the spring and get the caliper off
with out taking the spring out.

Reminder to my self to order some springs. :bag:

Got one side done.
Not that bad once you drop the exhaust.
The arm that came off didn't look bad.
Hopefully it's the other one.
