Sorry to bring this thread back from the dead, but what color red is this? I am getting ready to order from Katzkin and want to go with their tuscany leather, but they only have a dark red. I have the red interior now that came from the ford factory and wanted something bright like it now. It seems your red is more bright....

Thanks,

Nick

On mine, it's the one they list as simply "Red" in their standard leather line

Ok thanks and is that red pretty close to factory? How is the quality? I am tempted to go with the tuscany because everything i read said it's better, but they only have that one drab red color like maroonish.

Not sure what to do and I have to order these early this week.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Nick

The red is pretty close to the factory red, but not quite 100% identical. I added the red factory door panels after I did mine, and there's a slight difference in shade, but it's close enough that no one not specifically looking for it would see a difference.

Quality is excellent imho, definitely better than the factory leather. I haven't examined a set of the Tuscany, so I can't really give a comparison with that.

Torch... did you order the running horse from katzkin on your headrest?
When we had our 06GT and got some last year they said they no longer were legally able to put anything ford on the seats....

I'm currently running the Saleen style headrests (the ones with the open slats in the center). The tribar logo ones I have were done by HRE years ago (before they stopped doing them too due to licensing issues)

What color are the sides of your seats?? Black or charcoal? Asking because the Saleen headrests are black and they seem a bit off next to the stock charcoal seats. I have the Saleens in mine and the more I look at this thread, the more I think this maybe a winter project.

I reupholstered some seats on my last car ('68 Nova) and would assume if anything, these would be a bit easier.

And BTW, where did you buy yours??

They look great BTW!!!

Sides on mine are the black, yes, it is a little darker than the stock charcoal, but with the red/black theme, the contrast was most important to me, and I was ditching the charcoal anyway. The Saleen's also seem a tiny bit darker than the Ford charcoal, and match up well.

I did upholstery on my '67 'stang, and yeah, doing the current vintage cars is MUCH easier. Many things now are held on with plastic clips and velcro, not the dozens of hog rings on an older car. (though you will need an inexpensive set of hog ring pliers for the few that are in the seats to do the job right)

We had red inserts on the Katzins as well.
The red is a LITTLE off like said compared to stock but I opted not to put in the
side panel replacements that Katzkin offers for free because the install shop told me
they seemed to not last long and wrinkle or droop.

Could have been B.S. from them because it was a dealership that installed them but
who knows. It was not enough of a difference to me to matter.

Looks great!

Are they all leather or leather and vinyl like the factory seats? Hows the quality of the leather?

Ok, so where is the best place to order these from ? I don't want to go to a dealer ( 2 1/2 hours away )I want to order online, see what I'm ordering and install my self.

I've been searching and all I find is to contact them through a online form fill out gigamathingy or find a dealer.
