Hi guys,

Me again with probably another redundant question. i was wondering if anyone knew of a place to either Buy Automotive Leather to recover my existing BA Falcon seats or a place at which i can but prefab Leather covered seats from?

Cheers

Josh

yeah i've looked at a place to purchase the leather from based in melbourne... and they reackon around 1250 for Italian Leather...

I was thinking Lighting Blue with Black Trims... and possiably put the FPV Logo on the Dirver and Passanger side seats and also in the center seat at the back...

And probably Lightening Blue on the Door trims... and then i'll dye the floor... dependant on pricing of the leather.

Sounds like a big job! Are you planning on stitching it up yourself?

that would have to be for supply only. I got quoted $2500 for an upholster to take seats out, cover in leather and put back in

I'm not entirely having a go at you. But that just seems like me going around with Ghia badging all over my car, my car simply is not a Ghia model. Same with yours, it's not an FPV model.

So what you're saying is it will have nothing to do with an FPV. It's not a mockup, doesn't use FPV parts and will look different.
Don't be a ricer trying to steal badges from something it ain't. It's a falcon, be proud of that. Why don't you do like what jetXR did and get your own sort of design going, will be much more unique.
Like XT-S or something like that you know.

Or else FPV logo would defiantly be going in there...

But i also don't want to go the other way ricer and put Vortech stickers and s**t like that on my car.

Keep an eye out on ftg auto salvage
they generally get every FPV that comes up at auction
