Katzkin leather installed

Debated for over 2 years to install this Katzkin leather kit. Color is called puddy, not a gray, not a tan. Door panels are off now for the matching puddy inserts.

Cost? Difficulty removing the seats?

Thanks, I had a local upholstery shop install the new leather, only cost me $175 for all the seats. However in the process he lost a screw that holds the passenger seat belt extension to the seat... ugh.

Wow that's a great price for installation labor.

EDIT: I went to Katzkin's website and found nothing for Pontiac.

Great look.
Are they as soft as they look cause they really look soft.
Could the upholsterer have colored the seat backs/knobs to match the seats.

They are comfy, but haven't drove the car since the install more than a mile. Didn't ask about color matching the back's. Looking forward to the door panels finished to match.

That and waiting on this GXP style wheel to show up to tie everything together.

Some suede inserts in the center butt area and back area would have been nice. The Grand Prix GXP came like that and it definitely helped with keeping one from sliding in their seat.

Nice steering wheel. I saw that on eBay the other day.

What are the two black frame-looking pieces below the driver seat?
