    Hey thanks, that was a fun project. Yes, the back pane can be replaced....but it takes a bit of work. the Back panel is just a friction fit. There is plastic trim sewn to the leather and the plastic pieces just push into a channel around the edge of the backing. The problem is you need to get make slack in the leather in order to get it off which means you need to take the seats out and remove the seat back so you can acces all the metal rings that tie the leather to the seat. You need to take needle nose plyers and bend open the rings.... you'll see what needs to be done once you get the seat back off from the base which i think it's just a few torex bits, can't remember. Once you can take the leather partially off....it'll only take you 5 mins to interchange the back panel. Hope this helps. Good luck!
