Katzkin Leather

Episode Notes

We previously showed you how to install a Katzkin leather interior on our Ford F-150 project truck back in season one. With our S197 Ford Mustang nearing completion and getting a lot of exposure on the show, we had a lot of requests from viewers to show them how to upgrade their stock cloth interior with aftermarket leather. Who are we to let them down?

In this episode we show you how to upgrade your stock cloth seats in a 2008 Ford Mustang GT. We went with Katzkin leather interiors once again due to their fast turnaround time, ability to configure a custom color scheme, and amazing quality. The fitment is always the best we’ve seen, and this install was no exception. I didn’t even cut a single finger this time!

At Katzkin’s website you can configure your materials, colors, piping, stitch color, and so much more. You can even get something custom (like a logo) stitched into the seat-back or headrest. Once you’ve picked out your custom seats, just watch this episode to see how to install them!

Also, we admittedly did re-use the same intro from our previous Katzkin episode. It was just so good, we couldn’t resist!

    this install looks easier than I thought. i'll have to show it to my buddy who's got a s197. or is it harder than it looks?

  2. motorztv Says:

    I have to admit this was my 3rd interior install of Katzkin leathers, but it really wasn't very difficult. Just a lot of labor. The important thing is to take your time so you don't mess something up!

    Hello! I'am 15 years old and come from Sweden, i just love your shows!

  4. motorztv Says:

    Sweden? Awesome… hope the episodes help a bit with some of the vehicles sold over there. Are there many Mustangs?

  5. Fahadsc81 Says:

    Love your videos.

  6. motorztv Says:

    Thanks for watching them!

  7. Rob topliss Says:

    Great video duke, can you give any good tips on cleaning and conditioning them to keep them looking good.

  8. chris Says:

    Thanks, Rob! We'll actually be doing that soon with either a car care episode or segments about car care in future episodes!

  9. Darin AKA Manbag Says:

    I got tired just watching you struggle through the removal and installation, and you did a fine job. Thanks for another super episode of Motorz. The video and editing was also top notch.

  10. JJJinez Says:

    as always you made a very very nice video keep it things like that man 5* greetin´s from Aguascalientes, Mexico and thank soo much for the sticker

  11. motorztv Says:

    LOL thanks Darin… you need to take a break from all that hard work!

  12. sidewayznut2009 Says:

    I've done this already by salvaging a damaged seat's leather from another ford onto cloth seats. Its not all that hard but this tutorial probably would have helped me especially on those headrest things the first one took me forever to get it right. Overall great episode guys. keep up the good work.

  13. Annamaria Says:

    Thanks for the video! at first i thought that I was going to have to spend a ton of money getting leather installed but thanks to your video now I can do it myself. Good thing my friend suggested this video.

  14. Dagan Says:

    Great video, i’m about to get the leather for my 2010 mustang and was wondering how much did it cost to buy the Katzkin Leather?

  15. Bahce Mobilyalari Says:

    I love mustang but old models. Thank you for this video.

  16. Dave Smith Says:

    Great video but I think I’d probably hire a pro to do it. I really love American muscle cars.

    These are older episodes of Motorz. All our videos on YouTube were accidentally deleted, so we had to re-upload them all :( If you check the motorz.tv website, you’ll see we’ve been cranking them out for the past 4 years!

  40. Spartan193069 Says:

    how much would this cost? just like a ball park

  41. motorztv Says:

    MSRP is $1995 for a Premium interior, 2 Row interior. You will probably find it a lot less through retailers.

    No way I would have tackled this job on my 2012 without this video. There are minor differences primarily with different headrests on my 2012 Mustang.

  51. oStirFryo Says:

    lol 1:30 in and determined this project is too much. Paying the extra for a 2013 v6 premium (leather seats, MT), got a ford discount so i guess its all the same.

  53. LukeRageBar Says:

    seems like a lot of work. good if you want a custom leather look but id much rather just buy the seats and install. wouldn’t take as long and costs the same

    You work very nice! But that leather you used looks pretty cheap into a mustang.

  70. thebayareapimp Says:

    Ugly leather bro

  71. alex Murdock Says:

    I just finished doing this same process to my 2006 Gt. This video is extremely helpfull. All I have to say is those clips at the bottom of the rear seats are the most difficult part of the entire instillation. I just ended up cutting them off because I got tired of screwing around with them.

  72. anelsefer7 Says:

    i installed the power seats from non power ones and forgot to disconnect negative out first so now they dont work and airbag light is on what can i do now thx

  73. rambovschucknorris1 Says:

    Do they make these for older muscle cars??

    Thank you for one of the best comments ever! -Chris

  77. asiayoung18 Says:

    How much would something like this cost at a car shop?

  78. Samniss Arandeen Says:

    Do they sell fronts only, or do I have to buy all the seats’ leathers? I want to do a rear seat delete.

  79. Kerni Atom Says:

    Perfekt !!!

  80. lpmoora Says:

    Great video, very detailed and helpful. However, I just have one problem when doing this. After I replace the leather (I am using the factory leather), the bottom back where the plastic piece is; I cannot get the top and bottom to interjoin. The bottom piece sags and the top cannot cover the bottom and I don’t even know how to get them to snap back in place and cover the plastic like how it was originally.

  81. Sigi rios Says:

    thats a great video, but where can a get all the seat from? do I need to order them? sorry but Im new in this I have a 99 gt mustang and my seat are all ripped, so can I just order them at a ford dealer? Thank you…!!!
