C5 seat refurbishment


Hi folks - I'm a new member to CCCUK after purchasing my 2004 C5 Corvette just last month, first American car too. The car is fairly low on mileage at 61,000 but the seats are looking a bit tired (according to YouTube this is very common?). Can anyone suggest a good, reliable company that could upgrade the seats and leather without losing the original look to the Corvette seats? Preferably not too far from my address in Nottinghamshire. Cheers!

Simple problem, simple solution. Talk to Keith at EuroVettes and ask him to get you two new seat foams. They're quite easy to fit if you fancy a DIY job.

Re: C5 seat refurbishment


Bowler's right about the foam which will improve things greatly, but rebuilding the rest of the seat and getting them re-leathered is another matter.

How about something like this?

Seats completely rebuilt. Raven black/dove grey nappa leather with silver grey stitching - Corvette text digitised and embroidered in matching thread. Central cubby lid, gearlever and handbrake gaiters to match

Thanks for the advice folks, lovin' the pic with the grey/black refurbed seats. Who does them? Where are they? How much would I look at paying?
