New Seats

Had them installed today. The first set they had done with the GB accent. Handbrake also has the GB stripe, and the door stitching is all in GB as well.

Pretty darn cool if you ask me.
+1. Was it a kit that you installed or did a local shop do the install?

They are made by Gary Disney (and Licenced by Ford, so official). They were shipped to an authorize installer. Now, they weren't entirely new seats, but leather ready to go on. They shop had to pull all the seats, door panels, shift boot and Parking brake boot out. If you notice they are all stitched with GB thread. Took them 7 hours on the install (which I think is pretty damn swift for all that sewing).

P.S. The original cloth was cut off.
 
Looks nice!! Can't say I care for the blue stripe but the Boss logo and stiching in blue looks great. The whole leather thing, or lack of, is what really bummed me out about the Boss and is probably the main reason for me ending up with a Shelby. Then throw in the stock cultivator wheels with what appears from a distance to be white sidewalls... Some of you guys have really made them look great though with the various wheel conversions. I am looking forward to getting a Boss someday and maybe finding some leather Recaros out of a wrecked Shelby.

I think it looks awesome!!! Makes your Boss even more unique. If you don't mind, how much does something like run? Can they do the recaros?

Gary can do pretty much anything. I purchased a pair of custom leather skins from him to slip onto a pair of the FRPP cloth Recaro seats...

They are very high quality, even better than the factory GT500 leather skins. I know, because I swapped on a pair of the OEM '13 GT500 leathers onto a pair of the FRPP seats...

Having done all the work myself (including adding a power rack and lumbar) I can honestly say that Gary addressed all the issues I noticed with the factory skins. I added the OEM skins because they came first and I couldn't wait.

Yes, he can and has done Recaros. It runs about $3,530 depending on if you want the shift boot and the brake boot, as well as the door panel inserts. The gentleman who I talked to was Alex Mackenzie ([email protected]) who set the whole thing up. He was one of the trial gerbels, and they turned out awesome on his SBY w/Recaros.

Front and back, shift boot, brake boot and door panels were a total of $3,530. That was including labor.
