Ask them if they are made by PUI...if not can't vouch for the quality or fitment. You might even be able to buy direct from PUI. Have not looked into pricing yet but everyone I talk to says PUI makes a nice product and the grain matches. Good luck.

I have been looking myself and have found them at ground up and the parts place inc. If I remember right ground up has the pui and not sure what the parts place inc has off the top of my head. You can't order direct from pui, it has to be through a vendor. The only thing I didn't care for on the pui is everything is vinyle and I was kind of hoping to get cloth again, although the vinyle covers did look really nice. Just found the ones at the parts place last night and didn' have a chance to call for more info today.

Do you have to take off the original covers to install these, or do they just slip over the original seats? JB

I don't know JB but I think they are replacement not slip on like the old sheepskins from back then...LOL

I haven't looked into them yet found it and saved the link for future reference but if the Velour is replacement, it's making my wish list.

Jared did say slip over, my bad if they're not.

They are upholstry kits. All sewn up and ready for an experienced upholstry person to put on. I used them on my car. A bit of advice. If you use these spend the extra cash and buy the bucket seat foams that are finally available now. Little spendy but well worth it. Didn't do it to mine and am regreting it.

It is amazing how much to seat foam degrades over time. An experienced upholstery guy can add foam/padding in the right places make vintage seat foam look right with new covers but it's definitely an art.

That is true. I probabley shoulda taken my seats to the guy that did my dash, but I couldn't afford it at the time. And when I had my seats done I couldn't find the new foam. I'll know on the next one!

I'm resurrecting an old thread I know, but I was just looking at my original swivel buckets, an it seems they do just slip onto the plastic shell along the edges. Am I missing something? There are no hog rings or anything like that, right? I'm guessing it's still an effort and skill to get new covers over new foam and working wrinkles will still need to be done, but there's no fasteners or stitching needed, correct? Thanks for any insights, thinking about recovering mine myself with new covers and new foam.
