Unhappy Leather Interior Update?

Guys/Gals:

Originally I was going to go the Katzkins route and have a local installer install them on my seats until I found out they discontinued my year. Now, I am looking at a local shop to do a custom job. First off, does anyone know a good cust. appol. shop in the Houston/South TX area where I can start getting quotes? Also here is the options I am looking for:

2 Tone seats (grey and red center sections)
Red Piping on the outside of the seats
Screaming Chicken (Firebird) logo emb. on the seat in blk
Front and Back Seats (95 T/A)
Door Panel inserts

What figures do you think I should be looking at, and ballparks please, as I don't expect anyone to give me an exact amount? Just trying to see if I can afford it before I even waste my time or a shops time calling around.

I would expect about 3-400 a seat. Both fronts and the back will probably run you around 1200.

That link should give you an idea of some shops to check out. I don't know the area myself, so that's just a starting point. Remember, quotes are free (except for gas) so if you go to a shop, you can tell them exactly what you want and they'll tell you what it's going to cost you.

You can get these seats (See picture) for $400. It is a Seat Upholstery kit sold on Hawks Third Gen. Seems to be a slightly cheaper route.

West Side Upholstery off Brittmoore carries a lot of different leather vendors, they may be able to help you out.

Thanks for your input, but it looks like they carry a lot more options for the Camaro, I think the problem is the Fbirds have the separate headrest and a plastic back to the seat so on the sport buckets a simple slip cover cannot be used. Love the color though on your car!!!!
