Default New seat covers installed

Just finished my new seat cover install I got from Ridies. Seats done in Napa Leather and Alcantara inserts with Lt Oak two tone and Lt Oak top stitch. Install wasn't bad but took me 2 evenings after work. I am happy with them, really changes the look from the solid plain seats and comfort level is spectacular.

A great job, those seats have a very upscale look and the colors are perfect for your car - well done!
Did you have any difficulties with the seat airbags?

Did you install them yourself, if not what did it cost to have them installed?

thanks...no airbag issues. I followed a 3 part YouTube video and was confident of no issues. I will link to the video later.

This is the video I used...covers most aspects pretty well even though I was not doing the 2012 mod...the steps are the same.

I have a set coming in a couple of weeks. The install on the backs should be pretty straight forward, it's the bottoms that have me a little worried. I may need to PM you for some tips when I get to that point.

The bottoms are pretty easy. Here’s my post: https://www.corvetteforum.com/forums...e-arrived.html
