Replacement leather seat covers.

Anyone heard of or used any products from these people:
Pontiac Leather Seat Cover Kits

My drivers seat is really showing some wear and the passengers seat
has some seams starting to pull.

Heck it's only been 14 years of hot Florida sun.

I got mine from an ebay seller out in california who custom makes them to fit your car specifically. Theres a wide variety of colors/combinations he offers. He was very nice to do business with and the quality is excellent. I have had them on my car since December and they still look brand new. All they do is replace your factory material and re use the padding and foam inside the seat. The install wasn't bad either.

95 02 Pontiac Trans Am Firebird WS6 Seat Covers NEW : eBay Motors (item 260503617663 end time Mar-08-10 08:57:04 PST)

Here they are on my car:

Damn, that looks great. How long did it take you to install that set up in your car? How much was the total cost to do this? My interior is hanging in there, but for how much longer I don't know. I thought the only way to achieve a new interior of that caliber in leather would cost serious $$$.

It would.
Even vinyl replacements (what you see above) costs money. That set (as linked from ebay) costs ~$900.

The install took me a whole weekend but I was taking my time and making sure everything was done right. It could probably be done in a day. Oh and like superman said they are technically a Hampton vinyl leatherette. It gives you they exact same look and feel as real leather but it is a lot more durable. It wont wear or fade as bad as real leather does over time. They were $900 after all was said and done.

Thanks to all that replied, but the only place I could find the original ventilated dark graphite "leather" was at the link I posted, priced at $880.00
