Tell him to be prepared for sticker shock - those kits aren't cheap. A guy in class last semester bought a kit for his '67 Chevelle from Original Owner's Group, and it cost him well over $2500 - not including carpet, padding, or any plastic parts like kick panels. I looked into a kit for my wife's hot rod project car, and about died when I saw that a cover for the front, split backed bench seat was $695 by itself - and that didn't include covers for the headrests.

20 years ago I looked into replacing the seats in my 1979 Toyota Supra with original Toyota seat covers. It had two front bucket seats and a single rear seat, upper and lower. The Toyota supplier I talked to said "no problem, I can fix you up for $350 a seat." That was $350 for each seat back (3 of them) and $350 for each lower seat, which comes to $2100, and that was 20 years ago, and these were CLOTH seats, not leather. The problem is, you are getting original replacement seat covers and you will pay through the nose for them, whatevr the market will bear.

I hear ya Dan. In '79 Toyotas were still considered "Imports," and that meant (still does) everything was at minimum 10X reasonably priced. For example, an ignition coil for my old '70 Ford Pickup cost me $13. A coil for my father's '83 Celica cost him $70 in 2004. I can only imagine what an original seat cover set from the factory would cost for something made now.

I heard on the news a few months back that if you were to try to build a car out of factory replacement parts, the average sedan would cost you close to $200,000. Tell me who's really running a racket...
