Let me help you with that...

2 hides for the seats and transmission tunnel $998
1 hide for the door panels and dash $450
1 hide for the rear bulkhead $250 (leatherhidestore.com)
Miami corp "Bentley" carpet $250

I paid $1,500 for the stitching on the trans tunnel piece and seats, which included installing the custom cover of course.

TOTAL: $3,448

With that being said I could have saved probably $600 on hides if I had bought everything at theleatherhidestore.com. The problem is I didn't want to play the waiting game with send me this sample and this sample and this sample until I liked the color OR just choosing what I thought looked good off of a picture on my computer screen. We have a local leather store and I could just walk in and select the color I want. The rear bulkhead was just black so that was pretty simple so I bought that online.

You could go vinyl, but the feel and smell just aren't there. When I went for a drive Saturday morning, I could immediately smell the richness of the leather when I sat inside...like a baseball glove.
