    Just thought I'd share my experience with Down South Vettes regarding the reupholstering of my center console lid/armrest. In a nutshell - thrilled to death! These guys did a great job and I can't wait to get it back in my truck tonight.

    Due to travel and work schedule, I opted to ship the lid to DSV for the install. I also had them add extra padding to it for comfort. It was out of my hands for exactly 7 days, including shipping time there and back from the DFW area.

    Leather is super soft, stitching is top notch and communication was excellent. Give these guys a try if you're looking to upgrade.

    Total out of pocket - $115.99 for cover, extra padding, install and shipping.

    I had a ton of their stuff in my C6 Z06, top notch and great customer service, just wish they would start offering raptor steering wheel swap outs like they do for vettes.

    That's where I get the leather console covers, visor covers and gauge cluster covers. I embroider them then install them. I wonder why they are charging that much?

    For leather and padding only I would only charge $70 if you send your lid to me

    I don't charge anything for the foam and my install is $20. The foam I have, 1 roll is $20 and makes 100 console covers

    Is the leather an exact match to the existing interior?
