Need seats redone.

I have a 96 Prelude Vtech and my leather seats have torn up quite a bit recently. I need to get something for them, either seat covers, or new seats, or reupholstered with cloth. I don't like leather.

About how much would I be looking to spend for any of these options? What would you recommend? And if any of you are in Utah, where is a good place?

Trade a member here for his cloth seats. Don't destroy the VTEC leathers, as they're hard to come by these days. I'm sure someone would adopt yours.

Do seat covers for now until you find some cloth seats. You can get cloth seats cheap.

Re: Need seats redone.

you MUST get ahold of this guy at Fiberglassforums.com.
Epicenterdesigns: Fiberglass Forums

You will have to sign up to get into FG.com but it is worth it.
He is in Florida, BUT, with the work I have seen him do in repairing leather seats, the shipping would be Worth it!

Volvo Seat Repair

Ford Explorer Repair
I will let him know what you need/link him to this thread.

Re: Need seats redone.

I don't think someone would want to trade for my leather seats. They'd just need to be redone.

I also don't want to redo them in leather. I just don't like leather.


...I typed "Vtech"...shame on me. That's my favorite spot on my car too, the VTEC under the Prelude on the back.

Re: Need seats redone.

lol. On my 'lude, every time I wash it, more and more of that decal washes away. All you can see now is the faint shine of the red paint underneath, accented by the faded pink around it :(
