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.

Re: New Leather Hides

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.

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

Re: New Leather Hides

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?

Re: New Leather Hides

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.

Re: New Leather Hides

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.
