That is a really nice 6! I love the custom interior, where did you get the embroidery done at? Great looking Pontiac and can't wait to see what you have in store for her! B)

Thanks guys! It was done at this little mom n pops store down here that I can't remember the name of even haha. Good deal though I think it was like $60 or less when it was all said and done.

That's not bad at all! So how did you get them to sew it on, did you remove the leather from the head rests and back seat?

They actually did that all, I took the car in asked, how much would this be. Gave me a quote. I took the headrests out and they took the leather off the headrests then the backseat leather. I was originally going to do the backseat headrests but they convinced me to do the middle. I was kinda nervous with them maybe ruining the leather but nope they did a perfect job! I did this back when I first bought the car cause I saw it on the way back from the dealership B)

Hmmmm, very nice indeed, might have to see how much they'd charge to my whole seat in leather and customize it... and they did an outstanding job! I like how you have them do the middle section in the back, that looks really good!

Very smoove.

Any plans to touch up the engine cover? Like like some of the trim-lines are a little blotchy?

Yea they were done at the end of this summer and just haven't a chance to get back out there with the paint. The paints just been sitting at my parents house since lol.

pfft... :lol:

:lol: Everybody does red so I figured I'd be original and do blue. I like the blue better and I have other blue update hopefully in the near future if I can find the paint kit!

I like it!

It reminds me of the old Pontiac engine block blue. :lol:

The only thing I would change is to do a three color design like I did on mine. :lol:

edit: ;)

Black and blue always look good together... then again, black can pull off almost any color combo :D

Another blast from the past thread (:woot:) but those are really nice headrests, did you do it yourself? If not, how much did it cost you?
