The guy that does my covers said he canít do the covers exactly that way, at least not just yet. He has to get a double needle machine to sew pleats that close together.

Nobody is making these style covers yet that I know of. It seems that most parts vendors are carrying a general cover for the square bodies and do not care about correctness. I would suggest using your old cover as a guide and check with a reputable upholstery shop in your area. Check with www.smsautofabrics.com to get the correct material for your seat. If you call them they will send you free samples to pick from.

Re: 79 Chevy Truck Vinyl Bench Seat Help

Wow that looks nice. How much material did you have to order? I had SMS send me some samples of the 2 different grains used on them.

Re: 79 Chevy Truck Vinyl Bench Seat Help

Thanks ! I don't remember how many yards I ordered. I do remember that I had to order two different types of material because the material where you sit has a grain to it. The sides around the bottom and the sides and back of the seat is a smoother material.
