Finally put black leather in!!

I have wanted black leather since I bought my truck new, but its been low on the list lol. I came across a really good deal on a full set of black leather so I picked it up.:

I've had it sitting at the house for a while but have been slammed with work. I went back and forth on weather I would do it myself of take it somewhere and had it done. I went by a couple of local shops and got prices around $550-$600, just for the installation!! Well I had a friend of mine tell me about a little shop that does a lot of leather conversions for the dealerships. I went by there and he said "we normally charge about $550, but if you let me do it after hours I'll do it for $200".

He had time to do it today so I dropped it off. I asked how long it would take and he told me 1 1/2 to 2 hours. I thought, yeah we'll see. Well he started working on it at 9:45 and called me at 11:30 and told me it was finished!!

I'm VERY happy with how it turned out. I couldn't decide if I wanted to leave the grey plastic or buy all new black plastic for the seat trim. Now that its in, I'm really leaning towards leaving the grey. With everything else in the truck a mixture of grey and black I think the seats look great just like they are!!. I know...enough rambling...on to the pics:


Before, Grey Cloth with lots of stains from spills and work clothes:







After, All new Black Leather!!!

Now that was a great update for your truck. Good job.

Now maybe some matching carbon dash accents?
