Autocraft LEATHER-GRAINED HEAVY-DUTY VINYL SEAT COVERS SET - JCWhitney
I know, I know, JC Whitney isn't necessarily known for high quality
but I have used several sets of Autocraft upholstery seat covers in their heavy-weight vinyl, purchased through Whitney, that were awesome
. Unfortunately, at a glance, the Whitney ad reads like some high-priced universal-fit BS junk, but I can say first hand, it's not so.
It seems Autocraft has thousands of factory fit patterns in-house, since most cars made were available with different trim levels and sometimes different seat styles (for the same make, model, year) they have a nice system to help select the correct covers. I have not installed any on a Sami, but like I said, the ones I've used fit like factory. They will not be able to perfectly match factory texture and color, but can come close, so I recommend doing all the seats at once. And be sure to get a pair of decent hogring pliers and a handful of hogrings.
DIY upholstery Tip of the day:
After striping the old covers and repairing any sun rotted foam (cut out and glue in new stuff), cover the individual factory cushions with a single layer of very thin plastic sheet, a split and opened up dry cleaning slip cover.
This forms a plastic interface that is slippery and allows the new, tight cover to slide on over with ease, and all but eliminate wrinkles. Don't worry about it making noise when you sit on the seat, the dry cleaner bag plastic is silent. I've used this technique on I-don't-know-how-many sets of seats (in a past life), it works like a champ, helps your amateur upholstery job look professional.
