From a great company that folded up a few years back when Ford's lawyers were getting ultra aggressive with everyone over copyright issues. Beautiful work, but long gone.

That's so sad, it is a great product.
Grand Mat Designs do sell the head rest wraps, it's not as elaborate as yours but it is embroidered.
This is mine,the picture was taken before I had the SHR Louvers;

Those seats came out great! I'd like to do mine some day. I like the red trim on the doors too. It really got me thinking. Good job

Thanks. I'm really happy with how they turned out. Really looking forward to getting some warm weather so I can get some shots with the top down.

Yep. Smoothed out beautifully within a few weeks once the weather warmed up.

Yeah man they look really good! Can you tell them what colors you want or do they have set base colors?

They have a selection of several dozen different colors and finishes. They'll basically make up whatever you like.

@Torch_Vert: I've been thinking about a Katzkin interior lately. My front driver seat is all cracked and whatnot. I believe they charge $1000 for everything, right?

I'm from MA too, what town are you located in?

I got mine for well under that by shopping around (a bit over $600)

I'm just west of Boston.

Yeah, the $999 I got quoted for was w/ installation. I wouldn't want to install them myself, I have too little patience.

I'm near Taunton, if you know where that is.

Yep. Been there many times.

$999 installed is pretty decent if you ask me, it's a fair amount of labor.

I didn't think it was too outrageous. We'll see though, I have college this year so I don't know how much extra cash I'll have
