    Just purchased 2014 camaro cloth, electric, non heated seats. Also came with the rear seats. My question is; can I take the covers off the rear seats from the 2014 and use them to cover the 1972 rear seat pieces. I saw TPIChevy had an upholstery guy do his, but could this be done DIY for someone that isn't all that skilled in doing upholstery ?

    You can make them fit in your car, I installed the front and the rear in mine. You just have to start cutting, tucking and being creative and they will fit.

    I didn’t document a thing, I just started cutting, I can tell you what I did. If you want to give me a call it would be way easier to just talk over the phone. DM me and I’ll give you my number.

    Thanks for the offer but since the wife will be driving the Camaro half the time and she is seriously picky, I'll take it to an upholsterer and let them do it :). Saves me the headache of listening to the wife complain about something that may not be up to her standards.

    I would like to see some more pictures of your interior as I am seriously interested in how it all looks in there.

    Peck,
    Right now there is no interior, in the process of painting the car. I am almost done making the front seat mounts and should have them mounted temporarily this weekend. I'll snap a few pics when I get them and post them up.
    Once I find an upholstery shop that can do the back seats I'll take them over and get them done.
