    [​IMG] Hi Guys

    Long time since I've been here, have the total resto of my 80 Z28 on the to do list but other things keep getting in the way, slowly gathering up parts I will need and now looking for seat upholstery.
    Can anyone point me in the right direction for correct upholstery for this model, has cloth seats with 2 colour insert at top of seat and extending down the rear. So far just finding plain cloth uphostery which could work if I could also find the material used in the stripe and have it sewn in
    Thanks in advance

    Not sure what color you're looking for but I have the camel colored correct cloth interior for 1980 Z28. It is new and never been used. Sounds like you might be looking for Berlinetta seats?

    The Z28 was available with a number of different interior options. The cowl tag should help you with finding which one yours has. The interior codes are on the tag.

    Deluxe cloth interior had the stripes in 80 and 81.
    I believe PUI has the stripes but their fabric is different from stock.

    You can remove the stripes from your current seat covers, flip them over and have them sewn to new covers.

    Thanks guys, will take a look at the cowl tag, not sure where that is located but a quick google search should find it. Actually have the build sheet here somewhere, I found it stuck under the passenger seat some years back when I was fixing a broken spring. Now where did I put that ???
    Still trying to get the insert image thing working

    Finally got the image thing sorted. Couldn't link it from google images so ended up loading it to my website, should have done that in the first place.
    Thought about recycling the old stripes, and may end up doing that, they are in reasonable shape but a little frayed on the edges.
    Is the anywhere that I might be able to purchase the material or is it long discontinued ??
