Seats and carpet
« on: May 21, 2013, 03:17:33 PM »
Just an update to one of my earlier post "New upholstery".  I went with these seat covers- "TMI Upholstery Front Buckets Vinyl Black High Back Coupe/Hatchback 1979-1980."  They're not a perfect fit but didn't turn out too bad.  They were $222 with shipping.  Sure beats $400 per seat, that the local upholstery guy quoted.

This was the original style of seat.  (still have this cover is anyone is interested)

The carpet came from StockInteriors .com for $125.  Fits perfect.

That looks great considering they were made for a different seat. It really dresses things up.

They look really nice for a manufactured seat cover!

The install wasn't bad.  Took only a few hours.  Only one "ribbing" didn't line up.   I had to remove rust from the drivers side seat pan and I needed to buy a star socket to separate the upper back of the seats.

I bought them thru CJ pony parts. {cjponyparts.com}   Checked the site today and they are $249.

You might want to give them a call and ask for the $222.45 price.
