New Leather Hides
 
Sooooo... my '91 Trans Am GTA is currently in the process of getting a complete makeover. It's currently in the body shop getting a new black paint job, and I'll start on the interior as soon as I get the car back... hopefully in the next 3 weeks. The current interior color is black. I love black interiors, but I also have a very deep passion for black cars with tan interior. Needless to say, I'm changing the interior in my car to '88 - '91 Beechwood tan.

I purchased all of the plastic panels and seats needed for this transformation over a year ago. I've already purchased brand new carpets, and I just received my new leather skins from Katzkin. I'll start shopping around next week for a quality upholstery shop to do the leather swap for me. Anyhoooo... here's a crappy photo I took of them a little while ago.

Carlos,
Looking good! Did you get the GTA back from the shop yet? I'll be glad to keep the WS6 for you while you wait....Ha!

How close to the originals are the Katskins? I need to replace my black seat covers this summer and I am trying to keep it as close to original as possible.

Yes, I did get it back... I picked it up last weekend.

They're pretty much exact duplicates. I'm sure you'll be very happy with them.

Those covers look really nice. I went to the Katzkin website and they only list 2000 and newer. What is the product # for those seat covers?

I would like to know this as well.

I picked up my seats from the upholstery shop today and I think they look pretty good. As you can see, I'm converting the solid back rear seats in my '91 GTA to the Notchback/Turbo TA style rear seats. I'm also doing a complete color change... the original interior is black and I'm switching over to Beechwood tan.

Nice. As asked before how did you locate the kit as I can't find it on their web site. I want to get the seats redone in my '88 and these look really nice.

Oh, I'm sorry... I went through this site.

Make sure you let them know which style rear seats you have when you place your order.
