  • Seat reupholstery options

    Hi all.

    Is there a common source out there for replacing the original vinyl material on seats? I called my local upholstery shop and he said he doesnt have a source for direct replacement material. So I either need to find a catalog or source with original vinyl or I need to find a replacement that matches as close as possible.

    this is for A 79 TE 51 in tan.

      you can usually get something that's pretty close, Mazda guys here in Oz got hold of a material for R100 seats, it's usually not the colour or style of vinyl thats a problem, its the embossed patterns on headrests etc that can be painful to replicate.

        This won't do any good in Oz or Pennsylvania but here in Southern California I went to my local Evans Upholstery shop in Lawndale [I think, boundaries are confused here] and bought an auto vinyl pattern called "Wallaby" that was an exact pattern match for my 1967 Datsun. Moral, check the Yellow Pages or equivalent for upholstery supplies and pay a visit. You don't know what you will spot on the rolls of material! Local Adult Education classes occasionally feature furniture refinishing and reupholstery classes. Their instructors are a gold mine for where to get upholstery, vinyl or fabric, materials.

          Is there a basic method there for changing the actual vinyl material on the seats? We will had cheap essay writing. I called my local store and said that there was no source for the direct replacement equipment. So I either need to find the catalog or source with the original vinyl or I need to find a replacement that fits as much as possible.

            Go to an upholstery supplier and use your eyes.
