Received the samples. But have no idea what the color is that you have labeled Millenium Yellow, looks more Orange than anything else. The Velocity Yellow you sent is closer to Millenium. Also, I tried calling but the number on your business card doesn't work???

Here are mine from Ridies, Took me about 4 hours and I did replace the bottom foam. I was letting them sit out in the heat to work out the wrinkles. I am very happy with their product.

Default Yellow fading issues?

So glad to have this forum having just returned from Corvettes at Carlisle. Having a Y2K Millennium Yellow convertible, I always look for interior ideas at [email protected] My observation over two years and seeing I guess 20-25 cars, is the Millennium Yellow seat panels fade very badly over time.

No blame here and I can't speak to any vendor specifics, but it seems reeaalllyyy common. Maybe M_Yellow dye is susceptible to breakdown from sunlight? Any thoughts would be welcome. This concern is holding me back from ordering new seat covers.

I ordered samples from Ridies. However what they called Millenium yellow looked more orange than yellow. So I tried to call them using the business card they included with the samples, but it was a non-working number??????? I didn't know that about the fading problem, anyone have their yellow interior fade??

Did you call 317-516-5962? It should be working. We get lot of calls everyday.

Thanks

I’ve responded to countless threads about Ridies/Interior Innovations. The quality is excellent and to get a nice tight fit the new foams are a must. I spent about $1100 for my totally custom covers and full seat foams.
Ramets, you wanted more yellow, Ridies can had more with your choice of stitching or you could and a couple of small accent sections.
My seats are double diamond stitched, perforated black leather on the seat/back bolsters, nusuede in the seating area and plain black leather around the back and sides. I keep intending to take better pix, but these are what I have:

I will attempt to take some more tomorrow. I’m sure you know well how difficult it is to get a decent picture of the seats once they are in the car!!!
