C5 Interior Re-Trim


Had a rush of blood to the wallet and decided to get the somewhat saggy and worn seats in the C5 rebuilt and re-trimmed. Also asked for armrest/cubby and gear selector and handbrake gaiters to receive similar treatment. It is all done in Raven Black and Dove Grey Nappa leather with silver grey stitching.

The workmanship [as I hope you can see] is absolutely first class and I am extremely pleased with it. Simon of SF Car-Trim is based just north of Colchester and well worth seeking out [from East Anglia and the Home Counties] if you want any work like this done. Lovely guy to deal with too! Thumbs up

Re: C5 Interior Re-Trim


Whilst my C5 sports seats are in very good shape without any damage I must say yours look amazing. It brings the interior right up to modern day 'quality car' standard without losing the original C5 seat styling.
Would it be rude to ask around how much are we talking for this standard of workmanship?
Very nice job Clap

Thank you very much - appreciate your kind comments. For the seats rebuilt [including custom double foam wraps which make the seats much more firm and supportive] and re-covered in Nappa leather including the pleating and the Corvette script along with the armrest and the gaiters it was 1200. Given that Ecklers want $1100 for a set of two tone leather covers [which will no doubt be around 1100 by the time it gets here] which are factory made with leather of unknown quality without logo or any foam all of which have to be fitted and it seems pretty reasonable in comparison. Can't recommend the work highly enough. Go on - you know you want to! Yes
