Hi 'Root,

Can you tell me what the new seat leather costs? Also, is it possible for him to get just the seat bottoms, in the OEM Grey color, or does he only do customs colors?

Thanks,
Abe

You would not be able to do just seat bottoms. Between the sun that has shined on your seats for the last 10 years and color lots being differant it would be a miricle to get an exact match The new Katskin leather is an upgrade from the factory leather! It is thicker and softer! Atlass' kits are direct replacement! Check here for more details and price.

He can do anything you need. The difference is that his leather is much better than stock and may not match exactly.

Thanks guys! The next question would be, where did you get the arm rests on your seats (in the pic)? I used to have an old BMW that had those & I loved them. I would dig getting those put into the 80 as well.

Wow, I feel stupid! I had been thinking that was a pic of 'Root's. I didn't even think about about the fact that he obviously hasn't ordered his yet, and on top of that, the truck is blue...

Thanks again,
Abe

Washed the 80 for the first time today and stripped off 13 years of wax.
