    Default 1963 seat covers

    My 1963 needed new seat covers so I ordered a set from Corvette America. I gave the shipment to a upholstery shop, but when I got the drivers seat back I saw that the pleats were different than the original. The original pleats (12) measure a little over 1" each and have stitching between them. The replacements measure a little under 1" with no stitching between the (13) pleats. The covers are vinyl, The old seat covers match the pattern of the door side panels, the new one stick out like a sore thumb. Thanks, Frank1963 seat covers

    That sucks. Personally I don't see any reason not to do the stitching at the correct width. It's just as much work to do them wrong as it is right.
