Re: Update on the GTA

Glad to see that you got the seats that you have been looking for. Equally as important is that you were able to procure them from a reliable and honest resource.

Re: Update on the GTA

Not good to hear about the rust that you are finding. Hopefully you are able to fix it all.

Re: Update on the GTA

Most of it is saveable, but if I never saved the car I could only imagine how bad it would be in a couple years. Its just a little soft now but if it sat outside a little longer it would be holes!

Re: Update on the GTA

They are actually a decent set of seats missing 3 small screw covers but thats it, everything else can be fixed like some minor scratches. They do need covers though, the plastic cleaned up nice(just cleaned them)

Re: Update on the GTA

back seats are still wrapped up, they are mint though no sun fading or rips at the top. I don't think anyone sat in the back ones and they must have been folded down always.

The drivers side seat track part where it bolts was cut off, good thing I saved the ones off those grey camaro seats! Passenger side one is there though

Is that the Monogram model? I have it. I just haven't found the time to work on it. I have the Revell model of the GTA as well.

Re: Update on the GTA

My seats could use some TLC as well. I see there is a Dr. Vinyl in my area. Next thing is how much does it cost to have the scratches and gouges removed?

Re: Update on the GTA

So my dad had someone come look at his 2005 silverado because he is selling it and when the kid wanted to take a test drive he got on the throttle a little and I think i'm convinced to put a 5.3 in my GTA now! LOL
