1991 Acura NSX: Cool Seats
February 27, 2012
I really like the look of the black leather seats in our long-term 1991 Acura NSX. They look old-fashioned yet still cool, which I guess is the pop-culture definition of retro.
Even better, I like that they're still quite comfortable and capable of providing support (although I have yet to go on any serious roads in this car). The leather itself is in good shape, though it could use some conditioning. The only really serious wear is exactly where you'd expect it to be: at the "hinge" of the lateral bolstering on the seat-back cushion and the seat-bottom cushion -- where glutes/thighs tend to drag during the process of lowering yourself into and hoisting yourself out of the driver seat. There's another threadbare spot on the outer edge of the bottom cushion, but it's barely noticeable.
By the way, I didn't get around to replacing the dead bulb that showed up in Friday's post. It's the parking light bulb, and thanks to very clear instructions in the owners manual, I'll be addressing that on my own tonight.
