My experience with Katzkin has been great. In Texas summers, my skin remains on my body and nothing has burned off. It was easy enough to install myself. The leather really tightened up and formed to the seats after a little while. Nobody would guess that it was aftermarket.

I guess this is necroposting, but...I'd recommend Katzkins, yeah.

I had mine professionally installed, because of my long experience with myself and anything requiring physical dexterity and patience.

The lighting in these is not the best, for which I apologize. But the seats look and feel great.

color code?
It's called "Autumn" and the swatches Katzkin sent didn't have color codes on them - just the color name label on the back.

It's a little brighter than the version of "Saddle" that was on the S197 Mustangs. Okay, more than a little brighter. I was just overcome with nostalgia for old Tom Selleck Magnum reruns. :wink: :crackup:

Thanks.

My first Mustang was a Red Candy 2013 convertible with saddle seats, and I wanted something similar for this one.

Yes you are (necroposting) and I'm glad you did. Your car looks fantastic. I love tan interiors and on a red car, beautiful. The door cards are a very nice touch as well.

Hi guys,

if I provide the Katzkin complete set, what is a fair price range to have them installed at a good upholstery shop? Trying to figure out if I should get a set from eBay or visit an authorized Katzkin installer. I just dont have the patience to do this type of work myself.

Thank you

stupid question - how do you find your local Katzkin dealer? When I put my zip in the form I get 2 entries but no business name, no phone, nothing except (3 miles from your zip) which isn't helpful.
I called Katzkin and they provided the names and numbers of my 2 local installers.

be careful, dont go to their website and put your info in, I got spammed out. though I did ask to be removed on last time they called and havnt been bothered since. I said I was only looking at prices didn't mean to get calls and emails.

dont remember signing up for any of that lol

The frequently-quoted installed price for the seats has been $1,299 (leather and labor).
