  1. Very nice!

    One of these days I’m going to order a Katzkin leather kit for my Tacoma and try my hand at reupholstery. But I figured I might as well wait till the fabric seats start to look grubby. Only have 8000 miles on it so they still look good.

    I was surprised at the cost most shops wanted to do what I did. It cost me 61.00 for the o.e.m. GM cover and no shipping. Every upholstery shop I talked to wanted in the neighborhood of 300 to 380 dollars. Well that is just plain highway robbery if you ask me. I can only imagine what they would have quoted me on the fully electric 12 way adjustable lumbar leather driver seat. Ugh. It's like when they hear electric...everything goes up exponentially. Doah!
  6. I know what you mean. I can buy the complete Katzkin kit for my truck off ebay for less than $600.oo. If I go to a certified Katzkin dealer and have them install it, it's about $2500.00 to $3000.00.

    For whatever reason, I couldn't get factory leather with a manual transmission. :mad:

    Just happy to see someone choose a manual transmission.

  8. I can't stand automatics. Even my wife and daughter drive manuals. And they wouldn't have it any other way. :)

    Well went flying again to day and just another good day at the field. The only thing after a few flights the Pro260 just did not feel right. While moving it around to fuel up I noticed that the rudder was not right so after doing some checking all the hinges had failed except one. Those dam flat plastic hinges are junk. Just trying to figure out wat to use on the rudder when it only a 1/4 inch thick.

    Our family is the same way but it is getting difficult to buy a manual in a car, looked at several cars lately and the only thing you get are automatics.
