Throwback Thursday: Restoring Comfort And Class With Classic Industries

Wow, we’ve made it, another week is nearing completion. That’s right, Thursday is casting its shadow firmly on our garage floor. With the end of the week quickly approaching, we know you are planning to work on your project this weekend. Maybe your plans have already been made? If your plans for spending some time in your garage include a little upgrading the appearance of a third-gen Camaro, you might want to check this out.

In this edition of Throwback Thursday, we’ve opened the Power Automedia vaults, and are taking a short hop back to November 2015, to check out: Restoring Comfort And Class With Classic Industries. In the article, we are taking a look at what goes into giving a third-gen’s interior a much needed make over.

third-gen Camaro

The third-gen has long been considered the redheaded stepchild of the automotive world, but Classic Industries has stepped up to offer some much-needed items for those wanting to keep these cars is great condition.

In the original article, we show you guys a third-generation Camaro that has definitely aged since it rolled off of the assembly line. The 24-year-old interior was in need of some updating, as the years had not been kind. For that reason, we wanted to see if replacing the seats, visors, and other small items could bring some respect to the late-model hot rod.

Third-gen Camaro

The Sportsman Pro seats have an all-steel, TIG-welded frame. The floor mats, meanwhile, are actually made for the 1974-’81 model years, but have a cool look that lends well to our third-gen.

The parts we secured for the Camaro included seats (PN 816009BKBK), seat brackets (PN 81168/81169), floormats (PN K2776001), console lid (PN 14035760), and headliner/sail panel/sun visor set (PN 829201). In keeping with the already established all-black theme of the car, we went to the dark side when selecting our parts from the catalog.

You’ll have to check out the original article to get the full download, and I thought it was a good idea to show you guys that Classic Industries has the parts you need – even many overlooked items that can help refresh the appearance of your hot rod. That is why I thought Restoring Comfort And Class With Classic Industries would be a great article for this week’s Throwback Thursday.
