Thanks, and yes she and I both were pleased when we seen them for the first time.

The 67/68 Camaro deluxe interior was our inspiration for the design and we supplied them with a picture like the one below, but we left the details up to them. The quality is top notch, but also spendy. Does $1,000 for the seats and $150 for the dashpad seem about right.

When they first quoted us we almost fell over, but we knew their reputation was good and decided to go for it. I've had cheap jobs done in the past and always wished I would have just paid the money and had it done right.

Very nice work. Quality materials and workmanship are not cheap. That is easily worth a grand. The main thing is that you think you got your money's worth,

Mmmmmm that looks excellent!! I think its well worth the money considering the outcome.

On a sidenote did your dashpad have to be in nice condition for the to recover it? Mine is cracked so I planned on buying a new one but if someone could repair and recover it that would be a sweet route to go!

Ask yourself if you had paid a few hundred dollars less but didn't get that kind of quality would it be worth the savings. Seats are usually a one time deal. If you're happy with the look every time you open the door then who cares what it costs. And by the way I think that was a reasonable price to pay.

Sounds like a deal. Sometimes it's better to go with reputation and pay a little more.

That is beautiful. Love the quality. Problem is now everything else in the interior has to be this fine or I believe it will show. Like when you get new furniture in an old room. The carpet and drapes need changing also. Looks great.

Well, everyones comments have pretty much confirmed what we were thinking. I don't know how many times over the years I've let the price of something steer me down the wrong road with out considering quality and craftmanship.

The more we look at these seats the more we like 'em, and would not change a thing.

We originally wanted the white stripe to copy the camaro design exactly but they were concerned about making the curves at the top. So, they came up with the design that was used, which is fine now they will sorta match the ss stripes on the outside of the car.

Our dashpad did have one crack in it, which was right in middle where the instrument panel bulge turns more flat. The crack was never brought up by them and I absolutly can't tell where it was.

The only thing they told us was for them to stand behind the dashpad they would have to put a seem in it. I've seen them recovered before with a seem so we knew what to expect and we are very happy with it. They had to put some seems on the ends as well. I can post a pic of the ends if anybody needs to see.
