There's a thread here on C5 ... a local guy in Colorado had his done at a local shop and he had posted pics. Before you know it, that thread is now 800+ posts long, full of others who sent theirs to the same place. Embroidery Plus Quick Print in Pueblo, Co. Contact name is Pam, she does the work.

Here's the kicker ... at C&O a couple months back, there was a vendor there that does embroidery. He gave me a quick quote of about $400 to have it done. Seriously?? I sent these out to Pam, and granted it took 3-4 weeks to get them back ... $35 ... shipping included. $10 each and $15 UPS. And they look great! She will also do custom work with your design, idk about pricing for that though.

Sent only the leathers ... fairly easy to remove and install.

Thread is here, plenty of pics from others - http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=31141

Looks great. Did you buy leathers to send out, or did you go without for several weeks?

LoL ... just went without. Pulled the headrests off, removed the leathers and stored the headrest in the garage. So for a few weeks, the car looked like it had low back buckets.

There's also part numbers in that thread if you wanted to buy a new set to have done. They're actually vinyl covers from what I was reading. Didn't realize the seats were part leather, part vinyl, then again, I never noticed.

With some LED integration?

Speaking of which ... LED's are on my to-do list. As well as exhaust and new tires ... eventually.

On my catback for sale....FYI I need the money and it is going to a good cause.

Josh took $100 off his install price and I did the same on the system.

New price $450 installed or $350 for the system.

Well...I'm back home til tomorrow afternoon and I had a pretty productive day.

First, I pulled a Jim and went and got a haircut, (-$12)

Then, I went and bought 8 quarts of oil from walmart (-$50),

Then, I went and bought my oil filter from Auto Zone (-$13)

Then, I went and had my oil changed (-$20) (easier for me to just have someone do it in 10 min rather than get all up on the ground and what not since I don't have a lift.)

Then, I went and got two new rear tires. (-$542) I went with Continental Extreme Contact DWS. Good treadwear rating and seem like good overall performance. I got 22,366 out of my stock pirellis. Probably could have gotten a thousand or so more but I didn't feel comfortable driving down the highway back and forth from Auburn to home with them anymore.

Needless to say, I had a very productive day and stimulated the economy all in 6 hours!

Back from the shop after hitting that stupid deer last month!

-ZL1 conversion custom painted
-ZL1 upper grill custom painted
-ZL1 splitter from Ridergraphix.com
-ACS T1 ports with my old LEDs
-Refurbished headlights from Gen5diy/Ofer with demon eye kit installed (sadly I must return the passenger side because he did not seal it properly and have him redo it)
-Gen5diy's halo harness
Let me know what you guys think! I'm super stoked about how it came out. Paint and install done at North Perimeter Collision in Chamblee
