Pull Over Leather Seats

So I have been starting to plan the interior modding of my car now that the exterior is going to be done in a few weeks.. just have tinting and wheels to do.

The first thing I wanted to do to the interior was get the leather pull over seats, like what Katzkins does. I was wondering if anyone has these seats and knows of another company that does them that I can look into.

For all the seats Katzkins wants $749.00 - is there anything cheaper out there.

Also, another question is asking for your opinion on things. I have two toned dark brown top of dash, and tan front. Dark brown door handles and the rest of the panel is tan. The seats are tan in the middle and dark brown on the sides. At first thought I wanted to keep the leather in the same pattern but now I'm thinking if I should go full dark brown leather seats?

Any opinions?

Katzkins is a rather good and well known company, you may can find some of the same covers from a reseller on ebay for cheaper.... if you go cheap you will get cheap though

This is true. What's your opinion on the color scheme.

Re: Pull Over Leather Seats

I like to keep things simple, I like black (or charcoal on newerones), no tan no gray just black.

You can probably find GT mustang seats already covered in leather for a good price then you can sell your current ones and recoop some ~ the GT may have better bolstering as well~

Re: Pull Over Leather Seats

I just think black won't look right with my interior. Seats I looked up cost about the same if I buy them.$300 for front, $350 for back. But haven't found any tan ones.

Re: Pull Over Leather Seats

I get that, but the color scheme I wanted to go with were either of the two..

1.) Tan center & dark brown sides.
2.) Completely dark brown or completely tan.

I guess what I'll do is just browse Ebay and get them over time front/back and be patient. I'd just hate to get the front and never find the matching rears. Spector do you know anyone who has ordered from Katzkins website and got custom pull over covers?

Re: Pull Over Leather Seats

PM cutterwolf and ask him what he did (he is the one I was talking about above) not sure what he did and I dont know of anyone else that has.

You can do a rear seat delete and save some money if you never use the back seat~

Re: Pull Over Leather Seats

I use my back seats so the rear delete is out of the question. I'll PM him though and see what he did, thanks for the help Spector!

Re: Pull Over Leather Seats

All right here is the deal. It sounds like you have mostly a two tone interior going on. If you were to go with solid seat your going to throw the rest of your interior off. Katzkins are the way to go. Yes they are not cheep but you don't want to go cheep on something you want to last and look good too. I have a full two tone interior and I used Katzkins for my seats and they are sweet! This is mine

Re: Pull Over Leather Seats

Holy ****.. that looks nice. Okay well since you suggest keeping it two toned. My interior is dark brown on top, tan in the front. The cloth seat patterns are dark brown where yours is tan and tan where yours is black. Should I keep that pattern or switch it and go tan where yours is tan and dark brown leather where yours is black?

If you have more tan than dark brown then put the dark brown where my black is. If your the other way around then put the tan in the middle.

Re: Pull Over Leather Seats

This is the only picture I have of my interior right now, not much, but it may help.



The whole door panel is tan, except where the window buttons are, its the dark brown.

I have katskins in my 04, they are super comfortable compared to stock as well as completely upgrade the look.
I agree with the other guys that they are totally worth the money.
I got mine with a carbon fiber type insert, I don't know if you can tell in the pic.

Re: Pull Over Leather Seats

Can't really tell but they too look nice. It's so hard to believe they are just really sick *** seat covers. I was hoping someone on the forums would have a tan/dark brown combo.. I really wanna see what the dark brown from Katzkins looks like.

Does anyone here who has already posted recall of a member with my color combo or have a friend who has ordered dark brown from Katzkins?

Re: Pull Over Leather Seats

I don't know of anyone that had a dark brown and tan two tone. If it was my car I would just copy the stock pattern in leather, dark outside light inside. Maybe going with a suede insert like the SVT cobras had, as a matter a fact I would definately go with the insert.
