This is our original '97-'04 (C5) seat from Project C5X. Looks a little ratty, doesn't it?

Most of us C5 owners have considered updating the interior of our cars in some way at some point, and many of us have done just that. Updating the interior is one of the easiest and most dramatic changes you can make to immediately change the entire look and feel of the car.

There are so many options when it comes to color and design that it's easy to get overwhelmed. Since Mid America Motorworks produces many of its own interior products on-site at its Effingham, Illinois, campus under the Performance Choice brand, the company has made ordering your next interior as painless as possible with its excellent print and online catalogs. With these tools, it's easy to choose exactly what interior components will go well with your particular color combination.

When most C5 owners contemplate re-covering their C5's seats, they usually develop big lumps in their throats almost immediately. Most of us just can't imagine re-covering our own seats, yours truly included. But while it's no easy task, it's not the massive job most would imagine. When it came time to re-cover the seats for Project C5X, we happened to be at the Mid America Funfest and elected to document the procedure step-by-step. Matt Daniels performed the seat re-cover for us, so let's check out how involved this job really was. Jerry Heasley was there, so we got great photography as well. I want to thank Matt Daniels and Nancy Bushur for their help with this article. Let's get to it!
