seat cover kits

Hello, just wondering if anyone has these type of seat covers and what their opinions are of them. My car is black with a beechwood interior so I thought they might look nice. But they seem extremely pricey and I'm not sure of the quality. Anyone have these or similar, maybe with some pics?

Re: seat cover kits

The price is right, assuming the quality is there. -but I'd never wanna buy an upholstery kit if I didn't have the name of the person making them. Normally, I'd say look locally, and talk to a few shops. I got quoted about $1500 to have leather covers made by a local guy here. -and that's installed. If something isn't right, he knows he's gotta shake your hand and that you'll be looking over his work before you pay. Retail is, -ya get what ya get! Not saying they're not awesome, but ya just don't know. ...and then if fit isn't perfect, you're fighting the middle man to make it right. No way. Not for me.

.....the exception to the "local" guy however.... Check out Princess at Lethal Interiors. She has quite the following here on TGO and does great work. I'm actually in communication with her right now as I'm contemplating new seat cover myself. -also beechwood btw! ....because of her reputation withing the 3rd and 4th gen community, and her customer service thus far, I would recommend her.

Thank you for the info, I will look her up! I was just going to get the Hawks ones but stumbled on those and thought they might look cool, or different. But I'm also thinking I should keep it original too.

Re: seat cover kits

Speaking only for the 89 Camaro (but probably most all thirdgens) the Classic Industries kits are pretty low quality materials. Don't get me wrong if your interior is trashed, they're a great, cost effective way to make it looking nice again. -but definitely not high quality OEM materials. I'm currently using one of those upholstery kits and the car looks nice, but don't mistake it for a professional, OEM look and feel. ...I'm currently talking with Lethal Interiors about redoing mine.
