Hello, Redoing interior on my 1980. Ordered new black and yellow seats with logo installed on new pads, all new carpet, new door panels and new dash. My question is this; first, has anyone gotten seats from mamotorworks? And second, guy says the dash cover is just as good as new dash but alot easier to install. How bout it. Frank

I also restored a 1980. I would recommend Mamotorworks or Al Knock! Paragon offers Al knock at a lower price than getting it directly from Al Knock. "DO NOT BUY A CORVETTE AMERICA INTERIOR" the CA story nightmare is to long of a story to type. I will send you a PM so you can call me! The dash cover is easier to install if you want to waste your money.thats exactly what it looks like a cover. What is wrong with original dash? If it isn't cracked you can dye it. Original parts fit much better then aftermarket. But if you have to replace the dash you want to do it once and do it right. It easy to replace the dash. Once you have all the gauges out there is a screw on drivers side and passenger side and then the dash slides right out. The front is held in with clips.

I had Mid American do a set of custom seats for me a few years ago. They are "4 leather bolsters and Alcantara "man made suede" centers. They are holding up very well and are pretty comfortable. So no worries with Mid America.

Mid America did our two tone custom seats with new foam, two years ago. Very comfortable, long trips are no problem.
