Went to repair shop,est.on the vette as it stands now is $1782.00 .Talked about repaint and they would do it for a extra $1400. This for any color,and due to fact that all body work will be done prior to painting.Decisions,Decisions.:lookinup: :excited:

Rogerscorvettecenter.com has a 90 with cloth seats. If you ask he will probably e-mail you picks. If you go to his site look at C-4's for sale then go down about 3/4 of the way you'll see it.
Good luck.

I had an 86 with cloth seats, so they should be available somewhere. Try a local upholstery shop, sometimes you can find good deals. :)
