I had a meth head break into my shop and camp out in my Impala for the weekend a few months ago. Long story short, he took a blue bic pen and drew along all the stiching on my white seats in the front and rear, drew along all the grooves on the white door panels, stabbed holes in the headliner and put out a carton of cigarettes into the drivers side carpet.
I tried to clean the ink off and it just turned purple and soaked into the vinyl :angry:

I have to replace the interior now and I've seen the OEM interiors from Impala Bob and other places, which I'm willing to go with if I can't find something clean and custom.

Generally speaking, how much would OEM style seat covers and door panels in leather or leather w/ suede inserts cost? None of the local shops in Salt Lake have much experiance with this ish, so I might have to find a good shop out of state

Any ideas would be great........

It's bullshit, the interior was original and was still in perfect shape :( Weak assed tweaker...

I'm shopping around for prices with some shops in SoCal. I guess we'll see if what I want will be worth while or not. I also have front and rear cream leather seats out of a '00 Eldo I'd ditch the head rests out of and have recovered for a custom interior.

You're probably looking at 1500-2000 for that if you want real Leather and Suede. Material and labor for the doors and seats.

A complete cars one kit (everything) goes for about 2300 installed.

The tweaker got what was coming to him ;)

Crenshaw, that's what I've been getting for quotes so far. Not as much as I thought it would be. The leather/suede should add a nice feel for the car when it's done :cool: BTW, good luck with your 64 build!

where are you at?

how close are you to TJ?

I know for a fact there are some quality shops over there that do quality work for 1/3 of the price. you can get a FULL interior for about $600-$700 stitched up and installed in about 3-4 hours.

if your close HIT ME BACK! and i'll get you some info.
