Seat Air bag arrived the other day from another silverado that was getting parted out, At the dealer side airbag is around $750 or so, this one i got a pretty good deal on it at $235, the install was fairly simple and it just plugs right in. Now gotta get the seat cover off and take it to get sowed up at an upholstery shop

Seat belts have arrived, it was time to replace both sides for them to be fully functional. Have a few more parts on the way, roof bags, rear door and fender etc..

Just did the best cheapest upgrade or a downgrade if you will lol ... but anyways, found some wheels with tires on craigslist for $100 and the guy even delivered them to my house because he didnt need them. I was going to list the wheels that came with the truck anyways so i figured might as well downgrade to these cheaper wheels while im working on the truck and not putting more miles on them. I do eventually want to get 35s, just havent decided if i want 20x10 or 18x9, thats for another day

time to remove the seat cover take it to get repaired. Have a buddy who does this kinda work, let's see how well he does. He said I can bring the seat he will do it for $100 or remove the seat cover myself and he will do It for $50. Never removed seat covers, time to learn something new lol

Got the Seat cover back, it turned out really good, i wish everything always went so well haha. Another update coming hopefully tomorrow or so. Really cant wait to finish this truck. Found a shop guy who will repair my bottom rail section, i just now have to find the section and take it over to him to get it done, but thats the last major thing i need to do.

that high speed replay makes it look like a snap to do. About how long did it really take you to remove and then reinstall the cover?
I dont think anybody would notice that seam being repaired, really nice job and the price was quite reasonable.
that was a real bummer how they thought you would except that door, hopefully you got your money back.
