INSTALLING LEATHER- ANYONE?

Anyone on here installed their own leather yet? I have done 3 or 4 cars in the past, but just wondering if anyone has attempted the Camaro yet. If so, please post any tips/pictures/etc. Thanks!!

You can say we did just a little interior work.. It is a lot of work but pays off..

Well, since it was the first Camaro to be torn down longer than normal. Tear down was a full day.

Cutting the leather, making patterns, etc.. 2 months...

Anyone actually have any tips for removing the cloth and installing the leather seats covers?

I ended up installing my leather about a month ago. I didn't remember to do a DIY, but I can certainly give tips if someone is going to attempt it. I took my time and it turned out very nice. Was definitely harder than other cars I've done, but partly because of the airbag in the seat. The second front seat was much easier because I had learned the tricks on the first. All in all, much nicer than the cloth.

I'm planning to do this myself too......

Funny how people ask for tips from others, then do it themselves, then don't come back here and offer tips/do's/don'ts/pictures/etc.

I know the top posts are older, but......

If you have tips on doing this, please chime in - thanks!

My car has leather, but I bought a complete set of factory take-off leather covers from SLP and stashed them in my attic... I figure in a few years when my warranty is gone, and my leather seat starts showing wear, I can replace the cover with a perfect OEM one.. By then one seat cover will probably cost as much as I paid for the complete interior kit. I do often wonder how hard it would actually be to install new seat covers though, as I've seen some bad looking jobs, even on some high end Camaros.

Try Clazzio seat covers. I did mine with them. Great quality and fit. Took me 3 1/2 to do the bucket seats and back bench. Everyone is shocked when I tell them they are seat covers. They look factory

It comes with complete instructions that were very detailed and accurate. Your fingers will be a bit sore from pulling, but it was fairly easy to do. Just take your time and follow the instructions. The big thing is don't rush.

So you don't pull off the stock leather? You just put these over top?

I had cloth, but yes, they go right over existing seat like a cover.
