old post I know,  what type of seats are you looking for, for new covers?  did you find any? and are you in a rush?  and last question, are you looking for hog ring style covers or throw covers?

mrlightrail,   Doesn't anyone make a slip on cover that fits a pinto style seat?  What style seat? full vinyl or vinyl with cloth center?

Hi, We would need to know what colour? (fabric and cloth) and also can you measure from the top to the bottom crack? and could you post a pic or 2?  we have a set of seats like that in our parts car and want to make sure they are the same.  thanks

hi guys,   to save my typing skills i will copy something from a different post i said couple weeks back.   (and also we are thinking of making the back fold downs new)

from before:

"We are going in other directions this fall and winter.  Angie wants to get back into sewing customs for interiors, (maybe rugs) seats, dashpads (we started to do this couple years back before we moved and the wheels fell off the project) just not enough hours in the day sometimes.  we started the dashpads when we made the one in our car.  Sorry to say at the time those plans fell through. This time though we will make it happen.  Then comes the harder part, keeping the customs affordable for the average person to buy and still have us cover costs and a couple dollars for the kitty. See it is a precarious balancing act, however, we hope that between bobcats, pintos, hopefully (mustangs and mavericks) we can get the word out enough to make a go of it. 

years back we started down a similar road with Ford Broncos, were we wanted to make custom seat covers (hog ring style) but we ran into a small problem that we didn't own one and ran into a sizing problem on a gorgeous set of covers she made a guy for free. (test set) he went postal on her because they didn't fit right (we didn't know that the seat we used as a pattern was the wrong year seat for his truck) so after that episode it took the wind out of her sails.   

She has done many customs over the years but most of the work is hands on where the items can be left at her reach (seats, boats, what have you...) now having done the work on our own car we know were we can push the boundaries and make things fit proper."


She also wants to make new ones for our car next year. (full vinyl high back style) so when we do this we will make a pattern for later use.  our parts car ones are high back cloth middle with vinyl sides, back.  only thing we are needing to know is -  are all the seats for all years the same dimensions -?

pintoman1  can you post a pic so we can see if the fabric can be matched.  i am sure we can find something that will look good. 100% matched might be tough.

laters,  casey
