Re: 97 3500 454 4x4 project

Final update for the day. Headliner is in, not finished, but have it up and putting what I can back on without having the carpet trimmed out. I've been waiting a while for it to start looking truckish again.

Carpet is in, seat belts and trim back in place too. I won't put the door panels on till after I get some paint on it. I still have to fit my speakers in the rear door panels and of course do a little more cleaning. I've got to either find new seats or have mine recovered. I'll try and see what's available close and go from there.

Took my drivers seat apart just to see how bad it was. It's pretty bad, several springs were off and the wire frame had rusted apart on that section. The cushion is toast as well. My other seats, passenger and back are in great shape. I should be able to cover them once I clean them tons.

Ok, so what do you ask for when shopping for new coverings that replace the factory ones? I looked up seat covers and got millions of slip on covers....got frustrated. Just looking for factory style.
...my bad, as the kids would say...Your interior is starting to look nice.

Here's a source for new factory style covers. I have no experience with them but plan to use them when I redo the seats in my 98.

I signed up as well. I sent an email asking about the rear seat too.
