prefab and loving it

I have started a business that shows very early promise and i personally have used katzkin leathers and love them. they fit great and they offer customizing. of course i still have to stitch a good bit of the oldies because the vynle seats sold just dont do the cars justice.

Katzkin products are also quite expensive, and the results, while pretty good, are nothing like a hand made seat cover. They are also not completely made of leather, just the seating areas are leather, just like what you get in most OEM seats in cars. If the customer knows that ahead of time, fine, but trying to pass that off as custom upholstery work is ludicrous.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.

I agree 100% dan that for how expensive they are they should fit better then they do. I have installed katzkin covers that seemed like the sew foam was smaller then the leather/vinyl causing it to have loose areas if that makes since. also the leather that is on it doesnt seem very good to me compared to what i am use to.
