Custom Seats

Ok so Im going to go talk to a really good upsholstery shop about doing my seats. I have dark charcoal leather seats and I think Im goin to get them to take out the center part of the seats and replace them with red leather. As far as the head rest goes I dont know if I should put anything on it or not. Anyone have any pics of some custom seats?

Re: Custom Seats

How is the fit of them? Do they fit like OEM or are there slight wrinkles and what not? I am looking to do some custom seats when I get my corbeaus....gonna buy the cloth seats and get them redone in leather and/or suede since they don't have the exact setup I want...

or, I will go the sumit seat route and save some dough and get them redone...

Only problem I had was on the honda i installed on, the foam on his seats were done and didnt get new foam so he had some "airiness" in it

But Ive done a Dakota and 97 GT and they got the new foam they were perfect no wrinkles no nothing like it came OEM from the factory.

Like I said i really like Katzkin quality def worth it

So, what if you order them for non-oem seats? I am looking at their site and have configured my seats as I would like them (pure hawtness btw)...do you have to measure the seats yourself or can you just say "I have corbeau LG1 seats" and they know how to make them from that?

Not that it matters completely because even if I went with the stock seats, they don't have the 03 cobra oem seats listed in their selector. lol

Re: Custom Seats

i recomend calling because im not sure about that. Ive only done factory seats not non factory you know.

Also Try finding a dealer they usually have displays and they can show you how they are and how they feel.

Re: Custom Seats

but you have to get them with cobras on the seats

bullitt seats, mach 1 seats, roush seats those are all alternatives you can look into to pick the set you like the most

Re: Custom Seats

Or you could use other car brand seats too. Just need to make sure the measurements are right for fitment and you may need to fab the brackets.
