1. Just wanted to confirm what you paid for the seat covers. Both seat covers and the arm rest were $600?

2. Were you pleased with the quality of the covers? (In other words, would you purchase them again?)

Thanks (in advance) for replying.

Have fun.
First of all, wlcome to DC.

To answer your questions, yes and yes. I was lucky enough to catch the guy who sold them to me on his way to Bloomington Gold so he stopped in my city and hand delivered them. If I were to buy more, that is the way I would do it again so that I could inspect them first.

Drop over to the Intro's and Greets forum and introduce yourself. Post some pics of your ride too.

Hi,

Since I have not purchased my seat covers yet, I am also curious to know if these covers were purchased from Vette Essentials. Can you let me know?

Thanks.

No, it was a eBay vendor.

Yo, A.J., I did end up having the seat fixed... it was that little wing that actually broke from the seatback. It's so strong now, it won't break if you and I push on it!

WHOO HOO!

Just got through replacing my water pump. DIY to follow. I'm headed to Arkansas today. Got to do a detail clinic.

I've been right here! Where have you been?

I've been busier than a one armed paper hanger!
Almost time to put my baby away for a winters rest though..

Junkman, I'm beginning my winter project, installing my new seat covers and other interior goodies. I wanted to thank you and give this thread a bump because it's been extremely helpful and may help others. Man those electrical connectors were a b!tch! Seats are out and now the fun begins.

Those connectors are why I posted such detailed pictures of them. It was no fun trying to disconnect them when I had no clue what they looked like.

The fitment of your covers is better than most, as expected. Your seat warmers are better than most as well.

All Corvettes are really Blue. ~"Active Handling is designed to use existing traction to assist the driver. But cannot overcome the laws of physics". NOW they tell me!!!
