Brian: I hate you :) but those look nice. I don't know any good leather shops for your needs, but let me know if you need any info on installing them. I just got my S2000 seats into the car a couple weeks ago, so I can take some pics if you need. Then again, I probably had it done wrong and I will get ejected from the car, but who needs secured seats anyway? Lookin' good though man!

Brian,
My next door neighbor had his Corvette's seats recovered by a local shop. I can talk to him and get back to you.

I don't know if your willing to drive up to the Parkville area but I've used with great success (not on any of my Supras' though, no need) on many of my other cars with this little shop on Harford Rd. in Parkville called Ben's Auto Glass and Upholstery @ - 8316 Harford Rd - (410) 665-4500. They do really good work and usually have nice hot rods or antique cars there and some exotics every now and then. They aren't the cheapest but the work speaks for itself!

Brian: Yeah, the front brackets aren't off by that much width-wise, it's the rears that are way off length-wise. I will take some pics this weekend and post them. My setup may not be totally applicable to yours however. I didn't want to weaken the structural strength of the sliders by cutting them, so I had them welded onto the Wedge brackets I already had used with my Sparcos. I'll post some pics when I have them, those seats will look killer, you going to gold pearl them as well? :)

Thanks for the info Chris. I'll prolly go the same route. My welder has steel stock on hand.
He'll make 'em fit !!!

And NO, I'm not gonna pearl the seats. Anywho, here's a teaser pic....



It's Ren Red under cloudy skies, and certain angles. But when the sun is right it looks like this...



A copper/burnt orange color. May not be to some people tastes, but there's 2 more RR soups

A good upholstery shop is in BelAir in Harford Co. Nice seats

Does this place have a name? I just got a disgusting quote to redo my rears so I am curious too.
