What is a good source for original or near original seat cover material?

Thanks

Which seats? Standard or Deluxe? Year, color?
The only Vega's that only had a little rust were the ones still on the assembly line.

FFS! I wrote a very long post listing all the sources and links for seat parts and when I hit post it had logged me out here and I lost everything. FRIGGINFRASSANRAMANASS!

Anyways ..

In short, it appears that all the other places on Ebay (Tanraz's warehouse and Legendary Auto Interiors etc) merely order from Parts Unlimited Inc (PUI) who appear to make ALL the seat parts but do not sell directly to the public. It also appears that we want the 77'-80' Camaro LT Custom ones with the flat top and the Vega guys want the 'standard' Camaro ones with the round tops. Is that correct Oh Ye-Blaster-of-The-Ducks (they musta deserved it eh)?

Also check out ; http://automotiveinteriors.com/seatcovers_unlimited.htm - you can actually input a Monza or Skyhawk etc there. I am also currently waiting for fabric samples from SMS Auto Fabrics which appears very good; http://www.smsautofabrics.com/results.p ... =L&rpp=300 .

Foam parts are available at Classic and it also appears that rear bench/hatchback seats covers and foam are there also.

An excellent find by DuckBlaster indeed.

cheers.

Thanks SeniorSavage,
Yes, that sounds correct on which covers to get! I did a '75 Camaro (Z/28 tribute) about 10yrs ago, and that's what made me realize the seats were the same. Also being a GM car nut, I've noticed how many parts are interchangeable! :th:

Second gen Camaro seat covers are supposed to fit fine.
