Exclamation I WANT LEATHER!! (in my 1SS) HELP!

0-60 in about 6 seconds just doesnt excite me.

35,500 for a 2SS RS doesnt excite my wallet.

Go for the 1SS, right? DUH!

But.... cloth seats???? 31 grand for a car and sit on thread? I MUST HAVE LEATHER!

So where can I get it? Does anyone know of leather seats available that will fit/look good in the Camaro? Or of anyone who wraps seats in leather for reasonable prices?

Thanks in advance, gents!

Are you in Killeen? I know there are two shops here that will wrap your seats. My brother-in-law also had his 300C re-done with ostrich skin inserts by an 'underground' shop (no business license, works out of his house). Katskins (I'm sure that's not the correct spelling but I'm too lazy to look) also makes replacement seat covers, not sure if they will make any for the Camaro though...

Totally agree with OP. I had a 6 second 0-60 on my old '02 Altima 3.5SE w/ manual.

When I was stalkin' the Mustang Forums 6 months ago thinkin' about an '08 GT Deluxe (w/o leather) for around $19k new, I saw that many of their members picked up leather seat covers at new take off:
http://www.newtakeoff.com/mustang-12.aspx

I don't see it there now, but thought it was around $300 for leather for the mustang's front seats. I'm sure there will be aftermarket support here.

We work with Katskinz and they do a really good job. They can do perforated or two tone, piping, embroidery, the whole 9. Expect to pay at least a grand and be without seats in your car for about 3 or 4 days, but if you NEED leather, that's about your only choice. The other problem is that it will be a while before they will have the seats available as they need a model to make the measurements on.

It will be at least a little while before I buy. So they are in Killeen? Could they mimic the leather seats that come in the 2SS? I dont need anything special. And only a grand for the two front seats? Killer deal!

Do you work for and get paid by Lingenfelter? What relation are you with the company if you are?

Obviously not for a 2010 Camaro, but judging by the immense amount of vehicles they offer upholstery for, I'd guess they'll have it soon. This should at least give you a price range to expect.

I'm pretty sure they're nationwide and they should have a vendor in your area. We go through a company called SAT (sun auto trim) to get their products. They will pretty much copy the exact seat out of the 2SS, but like I said, why not go custom? Black seats with body-colored piping or something like that.

Oh and they'll do all the seats, not just the front two.

Their website is www.katzkin.com . They have an installer search and a seat configurator so you can design what you want.

Sweet stuff man. I know sun auto, great work outta there. Lingenfelter says they are doing some work on it too, but for all I know, those will cost as much as my car. So, we'll see. Thanks for the info.

Ahh ok, I though you did because you were talking about becoming a forum sponsor. Do you mind me asking what your company will be selling on here when you do become a sponsor?

Leather goods, Carbon Fiber parts, and performance parts to name a few. It will take a little time we should get our SS in 3/4 weeks which is going to SEMA.

Exactly what I was going to say... They have top quality stuff and pretty reasonable prices...

Well, alllllright there mr deep pockets. jk. I might just do that as well. paying near 40 grand for a camaro (after tax and such) just seems irrational. But oh well. its an awesome car.

Then again Ive just learned of a place here in tx thatl give me lovely leather seats for 800 bucks. TEMPTING!

Personally the extra features present on the 2LT were of more value to me than a faster 0 to 60. I'd rather have leather, gauges, heated mirrors, bluetooth connectivity and a nice sound system instead of a faster 0 to 60, cloth seats and $7000 less in my bank account
