Leather Center Console Cover >>>>>

Hello, I am trying to gauge interest in a new product for the Nitro owners. We have been manufacturing custom padded leather console covers for many automobile platforms for years. I had a client send us a Nitro console to be fitted and the end product is awesome. If there is enough interest in this product we will persue a vendor sponsorship as we have with other forums. Thanks in advance for the comments and/or questions. These can be affordable DIY projects and we also provide professional installations.

Best Regards,
James DeCuir

Thats pretty neat. Can the dodge logo be made in other colors, such as grey or silver?

Custom

These are all custom made to order so you can have any logo, any color, no logo, etc... This client had a burnt orange Nitro and wanted to tie in the exterior color. The leather is Dk Slate on the pictured console. We are new to this model so I'm sure you guys/gals can help us figure out the OEM interior colors. We stock most DCX colors as we make covers for the LX platform as well (Charger, 300, Magnum).

aspendog, How many colors are you capable of embroidering? Can you work with image files like jpg and tiff?

pretty much unlimited as far as colors. We can use any file type but they all must be digitized ($75). We have stock artwork to choose from that is applicable to Dodge but a custom logo will require the digitizing.

Regards,
James DeCuir

I have files, just tell me what you need.

I have digital files already. The cover and embroidery will be expensive enough. I did the original drawing in AutoCAD. I have a version in jpg. I can easily convert it to tiff.

I am interested in the logo (sans stripes). It would have to be scaled down to fit centered on the console, facing front, and change the lettering from black to red to match the factory leather seat stitching.

I had 6 decals printed at a race shop for $128.00. I realize embroidery work is much more expensive than printed vinyl. I acknowledge this could be so expensive it is out of my ballpark.

The first picture is of the decal mounted on my Nitro with the tail stripe. Yes, I know this 'artwork' is a bit much for some, I have even had it referred to as way to "Texas" by others, but it keeps everyone looking.



This one is of a spare decal that I have. This is what my digital files look like. I can change any part of it to any color I choose.



Is this doable without my having to find a second job?

I'll send the file to the embroider and get a quote, but all artwork must be redigitized as the embroidery software is proprietory and there are many different tyeps of stitching that must be taken into consideration when digitizing. It's not as simple as converting a vector file. Please shoot me an email at [email protected] and I will get back to you w/ a quote.

One thing I will say is that James puts out a vetop quality product. I've seen his work on 300's and Magnums I unfortunately lost my maggie before I could order one from him. Nice to see you over here doing work for the Nitro's. James how about posting some of the covers you did for the LXers like Monkeys?
