Seat covers recommendation?
« on: October 11, 2019, 07:36:48 AM »
Hi, I'm looking for the best fitting pre-made seat covers for a 72' Runabout.  Anyone know of a source?  The back seat is probably a challenge I suspect....

Thanks

I'm not aware of any aftermarket seat covers made specifically for a Pinto other than some I looked at a couple years ago from Lseat.com.  As I recall, these were genuine leather seat covers for the front seats only and I'm not sure if they fit Pinto seats across all model years or not.  That being said, I read some customer reviews of Lseat.com and they were mostly negative... but then, it's usually only the dissatisfied customers who write reviews, so I don't know whether or not that's indicative of their overall performance, or just a small percentage of their sales.  I also don't know whether or not they're still in business.  I ultimately decided to go with professional reupholstering rather than manufactured seat covers, so that ended my probe into the matter.  I realize this isn't very helpful, but what I would say is: this is an instance where the internet can be your best friend.  If there's anything out there at all suitable, that's where you'll find it.  Good luck!

Thanks for the reply, I'll eventually do the same and have these recovered, but for now just want to make them presentable.
