The ’57 Corvette, just as the year prior, had distinctive interior panels that featured small squares embossed into the interior material. These are best described as a “waffle pattern.” We were interested in restoring our seats to as close to factory condition as possible with quality and fit to match. Al Knoch carries NCRS-approved materials to totally restore your Corvette interior, but what really impressed us is that he has a full staff of professionals who travel with him to major shows to do the installations while you wait! There is a fee for the installation, but seeing some of their tricks of the trade and some of the pitfalls this job entails, the cost of installation is money well spent.

We met up with Al Knoch at the NCRS Meet in Orlando, Florida, and followed along as interior specialist Javier Torres made our ’57’s seats look new again.

For quicker downloads, we've broken this story into two parts. In Part I, we'll look at the steps involved with the seat bottom. In Part II, we'll detail the steps for the seat back.
