New Seat Survey

Hey, would you all mind giving me your thoughts on these seat patterns? Which would you choose and what color should the exterior paint be for the seat color you've chosen.
The original seats are similar to #1 but that doesn't matter because I really wanted them to be identical, but I guess no one can do that or they can but its outrageously expensive.
Thanks!
Joe

Re: New Seat Survey

I vote for pattern on the second picture seat.
Take the vehicle to the auto upholstery shops near you.
Ask them if they can cover them as close to the door panel color as they can.
Then you can leave the vehicle the same color.

Re: New Seat Survey

Probably your best move on that....that's what I did with mine and it turned out great......and cost wasn't bad at all....

Re: New Seat Survey

#2,#3 in the correct color would get my vote! Only issue that i would have with #1 is the seam that would be under your legs. It looks like a standing seam and i bet bare legs would hate it and you may feel the raised seam on the back also. Just my thoughts, good luck!
