Default Anyone used j-f-customs & thier leather covers

They are a seller on ebay, and make custom leather interior pieces for many type of cars. My interest is in their covers for out Camaro/Firebirds!

They sell covers for our A-Pillars, Rear hatch panels, Upper hatch panel & surrounding trim. They'll customize stitching color of your choice. As stated, these pieces need to be glued to our factory part.

Anyone ever actually use one of their covers? I'm interested in the fit, since these are tough piece to wrap.

It does look good, a Shift boot is one thing - but the covers for the interior parts is another. I'm very curious about the fit, tucking and such.

The A-Pillar's are pretty cheap, $35 or something, I might start with those and see if I like how it looks/fits.

The ebrake levers look awful! I wish the pictures where in better quality. I'd be willing to try the door leathers if they had better pics

Okay, I ordered a set of the A-Pillar covers. They ship from the UK, so it'll be a little while before they get here. But once they're delivered, I'll snap some before & after pictures, and give my opinions on the part!

I purchased a shift boot from them on Jan 19. I asked for dark gray leather with orange stitching which they did not offer on their E Bay page. They were very accommodating and stated no problem I would receive my item on Feb 2.. On Feb 6 I contacted F-J Customs because I had not received my item, they replied that day. This was their response. I still haven't received my boot.

[I]Seller's message:
"Hi there Thanks for the email, your item has been sent just after payment by standard post not tracked as the shipping item been paid, delivery can take from 18 to 25 working days, as some time they delay the items in the custom office Please give it few more days and the item will be with you ,let us know please if you have any problem or if you didn't receive the item by this time and we are here to help 100% Regards "
If the product is good quality I do not mind the wait I wish they would give a more accurate delivery time or at the very least a way to track my purchase.

Sort of, I got the 2 covers for the a-pillars. It doesn't look promising, doesn't seem like they are going to fit well. I'm not going to install (glue) them myself, I'll take it to my local upholstery shop next week, and see what they say and can do.

A-Pillar covers were a joke - I threw them away.

Details on why they’re a joke? We’re they to big? To small? Just never going to fit?

Could you take some photos I work with ulpostery here and there I’d like to see.

Default Jf customs leather

I have ordered a complete leather interior for my 2005 corvette. I got the black leather with white stitching every pc was great quality, fast shipping and fast reply on questions I had. Great customer service and a pleasure to deal with. Everything fit perfect I had a upholstery guy cover my parts there was no extra to trim. But iam very happy with the out come. Thank you so much jf customs.

Probably trash.

Iam new to this site. Jf customs product is great quality. If you think you can buy it and install it yourself in a few hours with no upholstery evperiance then don't buy it. You need to know what your doing and it takes time to do it correctly. But if done correctly it looks amazing and it's worth it. Great product no regrets.
