Just finished my seats. Factory seats are in the basement. Got the covers from Rock Auto. Had to go with standard Firebird seat due to an error ordering the covers. These turned out nice considering they were parts car seats.

Looking good!
I need to redo my seat cushions

When you get her done, we can get an Icecream on Woodward. 
Do you still got a sun shade in the rear? I have a set of the mounting cups if you need them.
