Wanting some opinions of possible interior choices (POLL)

Currently, I have Wet Okole seat covers and I really like them a LOT. They look cool, but the copper piping turned pink in the sunlight :-( . I will have the seat covers custom embroidered to have the GTO logo on them, but I want to have a silver border and a copper interior on the enbroidery. These are my seat covers (which look better in person).

Eventually, I'm going to be chaning up my interior and I'm looking for some opinions on what sort of leather seat coverings I could get. I have my favorite one, but I'm not 100% sure if I even want to do this (yet). I kinda wanted to make my car look a little more like what you coulda / shoulda been able to order from Pontiac. The charcoal seats are fine, but I wanted to make it a little more unique. I'm partial to the piping. I was going to add some interior accents and the piping is going to (possibly) continue on other items I have to make for the car.

So, here are some exaples of leather seat covers I'd like you all to consider.

Here's what I went with. Same company.

If you go with lseat instead, you get full leather and gto embroidery. They might be a bit baggy though.

WOW! I really like it in blue! With the matching interior panels, that really sets your interior off. I imagine that looks better in person. Unfortunately, I don't care for the seats when they are in the Holden orange color.
Thank you, sir. The pic actually does it decent justice. I like my interior. I have overhead lights in white LED because with blue you can't see. But all other interior lights are blue like the center console, feet area and the lights on the doors.

I also had Bohnman do my cluster, dash and radio lights. All screens on the radio and cluster are blue. All numbers are white. I did the color changing needles. Looks very cool IMO.

Once I move and get a garage for the car, it will get painted. But I will not spend several grand now and continue to let it sit in the sun and rain as it has been for 19 years, so paint will wait a bit. I usually do at least one decent size upgrade to it per year. This year likely will be a cam.

The orange leather seat looks nice. Kind of breaks up the black everywhere look.

Charger Scat Packs offer a very similar option.
I like it too. I think the OP should do the orange color up the entire middle of the seat just like my pic or the monaro pic. I think it looks best. Not the headrest though. I also prefer the stitching to the piping, but if he likes piping, more power to him. Get what you prefer and like to look at.

Do these leather kits come with the section between the rear 2 seats? I'm interested in getting a kit as well, but definitely need one that also has the piece that goes between the two rear seats... For that matter, is the rear basically one big piece, or is it 3 pieces (each seat plus the middle)?
Yes it 100% comes with that. I kept my bottom I think because it was in the shade and protected, but my top needed replacing as it was mangled.

The way it comes out, you take out the rear bottoms and then the rear tops. The middle sections pull out of the top and bottom. IIRC, they are hard Styrofoam wrapped in leather.

Here's my dilemma.

I REALLY (like "a LOT REALLY") want the GTO logo on the seats. I know some people who can do the custom embroidery on the seats (using silver and copper thread). In the right light, the car sorta looks like fresh, new copper. When I had the seat covers done, I wasn't too crazy about them. After the custom embroidery, it looked SO awesome.

So, that's going to happen. Problem is, if that sort of embroidery is done on an orange seat back, it's going to get lost. I really like the "GTO" on the seat. In my head, it has to be done on a black or super dark charcoal seat back. If I had the embroidery done in black, or a darker color (like what was done on the stock red and blue GTO seats), if I did an orange seat back with black "GTO", it would probably look pretty good too. Problem is, I I want the silver / copper embroidery more than the orange seats. I still want orange on the seats, but no so much it draws away from the other custom touches I'm in the process of figuring out how to make.

It doesn't help that I don't care for the way the orange Monaro seats look inside of the car. I love the way Abs's look in blue. If that would have been a option from the factory, I don't know how ANYONE could have NOT bought these cars back in the day. The interior (minus the steering wheel) was so beautiful, that would have sold these cars in droves!!!

I was hoping this thread could solve a dilemma that I've been mulling over for a while now. I'm probably not doing the piping, as I can see, the stitching will be visually acute enough, to be seen. I want some orange leather, but not so much it detracts away from the other accents I'm going to make.
Have you looked into lseat? Maybe they could do the silver/copper embroidering you want. They definitely do black.
