#1: Restoring stock seat upholstery

Posted on 2006-07-23 06:53:53 by stevepankow

I have a '91 CRX HF and I'm beginning to get some small tears along the
outside of the driver's side bolsters. Is getting the seat restored to
"original" condition even worth it, or should it just be redone with
more modern fabrics in the same color scheme? Or do I totally cheap out
and get a seat cover?

I have a 93 Del Sol and the driver's seat has a tear on the outside
of the bolster. Most Del Sol seats wear out at that point.

I have been unable to find original fabric to recover them. I have
considered getting used seats and taking the fabric from the passenger's
seat and putting it on the driver's seat. I have also considered putting
a 'patch' on the wear spot, using a high grade vinyl. This would be
like leather patches on the elbows of a sweater. To get it to look
right, I would need to have mirror image patches done on both seats.

There are some higher quality seat covers that replace the original
upholstery. I have seen used versions of this kind of thing for sale
on eBay but in dreadful condition, so I wonder how long they last.
