Seat leathers

Has anyone bought GM seat covers or bulk leather for our Z/28 Recaro seats? I have a feeling this car is a keeper and I would love to get ahead on stashing away things that I know will wear out and will be difficult to find down the road.

Over time, the tall seat bolsters are going to take a lot of abuse as I drag my arse over them...LOL.

I hope there's a cheaper way than a whole new seat!

The guys do a TON of GM stuff.
They can eventually recover your seats.
I've seen their work, it's awesome and not too crazy expensive.

Lots of YouTube videos of their process as well.

Try not to drag your ass across the seat? That'll help.

So I'm guessing you don't know of a source?

At 6'3" and 225lbs, I am going to wear this driver seat out over time. I'll investigate this with my dealer and report back. I'm not the only one looking at the potential cracking in the leather...
