any one have theirs finished and installed yet? i'd like to see some pictures of the finished product installed!!!

Read up in this thread. Mine's done and I posted photos, plus I think someone else did as well. Car is pickled in storage until the snow (and salt) goes away otherwise I'd be driving it today!

Reproducing a quality OEM spec part that has not been manufactured in decades requires:

Attention to detail
Product knowledge
Quality control
A Great deal of time and effort devoted to research and development
And most importantly Patience and Perseverance

Just food for thought. I know because I have spent countless hours researching information on VW and Porsche locks, keys, etc. and I still have much to learn and hope to continue doing so.

Thank you, Mark, for providing such a high quality reproduction. Attached Image

My guy was out of the office, so I'm still following up. I'll let you know as I'll be trying again tomorrow.

#47 should be in the group that will be done Friday. I'll let you know Rick just as soon as I get it'll be out the door to ya.

I'm working on being able to produce these and others faster and in more volume.
Not much good now but I'll be improving and expanding offerings on these.

Besides the bottom cushion, are you all using the existing foam and structure for the head and sides? or did you have it all replaced?


looking at the foam out of the first seat i stripped, I do not think it wise to just wrap it up under these new skins.

The foam for the bottom is an option, as well as seat heaters. The black and grey plaid is still somewhere in the works. I have all the thread matched, I call weekly for the production schedule, but it seems more like I'll get it when they are ready. So for now, I call weekly, don't get much info, but it will get done, it's just a matter of time. Unfortunately, I don't have much direct control but I'm persistent in calling. I hope in a few weeks to have this in hand.

Unfortunately I'm still at the mercy of the guy I have doing this. I make weekly calls. I'm trying to sweeten the pot by increasing the amount of material. I will keep you posted.
Thanks for your patience.

I would be very interested in a black grey set when you get them . Are you still making the covers? I have had the same issue trying to get the right plaid from SMS Auto Fabrics...the black grey actually came out black and tan.
The covers look amazing btw!
Thanks,

We have got the pattern correct and the Black and grey will be ready in less than 2 weeks. Yes we are doing these and will be doing a few other items to go with these very soon.

just as a reminder because its been quite a while since the initial order and payment:
dont forget my order included the bolsters, back & bottom vinyl, and
i wanted to add the seat foam and seat heaters to ship at the same time.

I'm getting a bit ahead of my self here but what did you guys do about the black cardboard that runs up the sides of the backrest? It was sewn in originally. Did you ad it into your covers or leave it out?

My seats had already been reupholstered, and the cardboard was glued to the main foam core. I think that you will need it so you have something to staple to.
