If anyone ordered bolster fabric, I'd like to see what it looks like.

Well I found Nathan on Facebook who is selling the CAMARO panels and seems he only has the dark blue/grey and orange panels left. My interior is called Saddle.

Re: Lear Siegler Camaro Conteur interior history

He is sending me a swatch of black, but he thinks he found out it is the thicker courser material from the 85-86 Chevy/GMC S10/S15 Sport interior that had TRUCK written on it like CAMARO. It should be here in a few days. My brother had that model S10 and I remember the feel of it. We shall see. Dont know about the blue.

I bought 10 yards of the saddle. Probably the 2nd most popular color than charcoal. The charcoal I only got maybe 3 yards of. I was going to find some nice matching leather for the bolsters.
I'm certainly not going to use all 10 yards.

Re: Lear Siegler Camaro Conteur interior history

This car is on ebay & I see its listed in the for sale section as well. I never realized the cloth had such a velour look to it. Its been many years since I saw one of these interiors in person & I didn't remember them looking like that. Or is it just because of the color?

Re: Lear Siegler Camaro Conteur interior history

What was the RPO for these seats in 1985? This thread is so deep, I pretty much skimmed through the pages, so if I missed it I apologize for asking...

Re: Lear Siegler Camaro Conteur interior history

Must be the AF9. Matches my build sheet, attached below.

BTW, F-body-fan, I see you are in Green Bay. Check out where my car was sold. I got it out of Door County in 2015.

The build sheet was under the passenger bucket, between the seat foam and wire.

That is a RPO sticker for an 85 IROC-Z.

19D is the RPO for the charcoal LS seats, which I would love to have for my car!

Oh yeah. Misread your question. Motown is on the right track if you are looking for color code.

The 19D is black/charcoal Conteur seat option in 1985. 19I is probably black interior trim. It is on page 16 of 120 in the following pdf.

FYI: Just to be sure that you - and other members know - That's not NOS,.... It's aftermarket / reproduction fabric.

Re: Lear Siegler Camaro Conteur interior history

About 99% I was wrong.

As I just began to write why I thought 'the technician' s fabric wasn't NOS,....... I realized something I ASSUMED when I first saw the pics is not what I thought it was.

16 rows of Logos per column is why I thought this stuff was knock-off. But it's not 16 rows top to bottom,... someone cut the first row and 1/2 off the top.

As I began to write this reply I actually looked at the picture and it sure looks like the lightest "CAMARO" row was cut off the top,... it was left-over light grey "CAMARO" row of fabric at the top and not the "border" stitching as I so quickly ASSUMED when I first saw the pic. (white stitching as seen at the bottom of the fabric.) If that's true than the darkest row was probably also cut off: or 18 rows of "CAMARO" = how the NOS material was produced.

I was wrong. Not the first time I posted sumthin' stupid in haste but Hopefully; the last time for a long time. to: the technician,.......Sorry for the mistake.

That is good news for everyone & you started this thread way back when. It is a great thread & when I posted my reply to you about this material, I wanted to learn something from your post & now I did. Thank you.

Re: Lear Siegler Camaro Conteur interior history

The exciting news for me, after years of hunting, I FINALLY found a set of tan Lear seats. This is critical because the trim piece are colored. I locked in a price with very little details for seats & door panels. When I arrived to my surprise, they were POWER!!!! To most people, no big deal but for me, a huge score. Came out of an original yellow car with gold accents (now a purple car). Al the other plastics in the car were grey.....very glad I not only was able to save the seats but add them to my stash. Yes, they are re dirty & need recovered but finding a mint set in any color is going to be very difficult for anyone.

Those seats look like they are in really good shape. I'd give them a super good cleaning and see where you're at, before recovering. Great score, Rob!

thanks Chazman. They are more rough than I would even use but finding the core was important and being power is a huge plus.

I think you need "42" Camaros. Depending how they measure a yard....that might be overkill

Rob, I think you're spot on with your estimate. I looked at the photos of the seats/doors I'm wanting to recover and counted the 'Camaros' and sure enough it's right at 40ish. Hope we hear back from Technician soon.

that is much different. That is closer to a GM Truck seat.
I think headliner material is closer but it too is wrong.
