    Default Seat Question

    Where can we get the best deal on non-leather seat covers? Ecklers has them for my standard 84 seats @ $399.00 pair for Carmine non-perforated -anyone used these and if so how do you like them?
    Thanks, Glen

    HEY GLEN! I RECENTLY CHANGED THE SEATS IN MY 87 VETTE. I GOT LEATHER MOUNTED SEATS FROM ECKLERS. STIFF AS ABOARD.IF I WERE TO DO IT OVER AGAIN I WOULD BUY LEATHER MOUNT COVERS AND USE THE ORIGINAL FOAM BUT HAVE SOMEONE PROFESSIONAL MOUNT THEM. INSTALLING THEM IS NOT THAT HARD. JUST NEED THE MOUNTING TOOL OR AN OLD LONG SCREW DRIVER AND NOTCH A "V" AT THE TIP.

    GOOD LUCK

    Thanks, I think that I'm going to go with Corvette Central's leather like perforated vinyl ( they look the same as Ecklers are $20.00 less), use my original seat foam and get new hog rings and the "V" tool.
    Anything else?
    Thanks, Glen

    For just seat covers, I recommend Iggee's

    I bought leather seat covers off of ebay and it was a no reserve auction and I bought them for just under $400. It was from a motorcycle shop in florida and yes they were real leather

    I like Iggees covers also, but wanted to get the fitted ones in the original Carmine color. Thanks, Glen
