The comp seats were the only option my car didn't have that I wanted. Love to do the conversion using the covers with the sueded inserts. Does this kit use genuine OEM factory parts? How much extra to include sueded bottom cushion covers as well?

Do you have an option to change just the color of GT seats?

Still waiting for an answer as to whether or not this kit uses OEM parts?

Yes they do. Before ordering mine from TM I went to my local dealer and had him pull a parts list and pricing to do the conversion. The same parts list was used by TM but the cost was SO much better than buying from the dealer. I am keeping my stock 3LT color but I also needed a new driver side seat cover which I was also able to order thru TM. Hope this helps.

Yes, we have done this many times for customers. Please PM me for exact prices, replacement cushion covers are $200-300 per side depending on the option you want, and no extra shipping costs are added.

Yes we do, that is a very simple swap, PM me with the color that you are wanting to purchase for the GT seats, and I will send you a quote

I found the working link on a different thread. Question - What the difference between "703" & 705"?

Stingray Black Outer/Adrenaline Red Insert All Leather 703 (+$73.74)
Stingray Black Outer/Adrenaline Red Insert All Leather 705 (+$247.00)

Has anyone hired someone to do the conversion for you, if so, how much did it cost? Also, it would be nice to have a thread started with those who have done the conversion and willing to assist or coach others in their nearby communities and even get paid a small consulting fee if need be. So perhaps list state, city and zip for those who have completed the conversion. Just a thought considering the demand for competition seats!

Pardon my ignorance, or my lack of clarity, but I was asking if there are instructions for replacing the seat belts, not the suede parts. I'd like to replace my seat belts with the red version but I'm not a gear head and I probably don't have the required tools. I'm just wondering how difficult the job is.

This is what I was able to find for instructions. In that thread, he does remove the seat belts to replace one of the panels.
He goes over how to remove the seat belts.
It is fairly involved, just getting to expose the bolts to remove them, but does not require an expert.
I would start with the passenger belt; that way if you don't finish, you can still drive the car.
