 Re: Damaged front seat due to old age
Why I posted this pic is because I need you guy's advice on this. I just wish I could still get the specific tecture of plastic the seats were originally made of back in the 70's then I could have gotten it redone to original specs.
Unfortunately the tecture is different of today's plastic.
What do you guys think I can do to my seats to still let it look original.
I have thought about replacing the centres of the seats where it is stiched with cloth.

Getting original cloth/fake leather will be very difficult I guess. My advice is to replace all of the seat trim with similar modern stuff while retaining the seat styling. A professional will make you a set in no time, but will cost. The cheaper option is to buy the materials and borrow a sewing machine from your aunt/sister/mother and be brave.
