Can you share what the price difference is to go custom?

Your Cinnamon is very glossy-- which the leather is not at all, stock. I've found that certain leather products (noteably lexol) make the leather much darker and shinier-- you using anything like Lexol?

If so, I could see the above sample actually possibly being a good match for factory like leather.

Yeah it does look really glossy in the photos. I have never used any sort of treatment on it myself, but it’s possible the last owner did. It doesn’t look THAT glossy in person. The drivers seat is fairly butt polished, the back seats are much more matte.

With regards to pricing, Relicate charges $500 for a standard hide, and $775 for a custom. They’ll also charge another $50 for a “strike-off”, which is basically a sample of your custom color. If you don’t order that, you’re just trusting it’s good enough before the full hide(s) are made.

For those that were interested i finally got my hands on 9002 alcantara bought from Overland Designs for the seat centers. For reasons reasons beyond my comprehension, they couldn't ship to Cobra and Cobra couldn't source it directly from them but shipping was fast and cheap, made it all the way from Europe on Monday to Florida today so I can't complain much. Now to package this back up and send it back to Europe But if you're still interested, the owner, Jason, was very helpful and responds super quick to emails. I'll probably order another roll of this stuff for my headliner when I get around to it.
