Introduction upholstery questions
I'm a new member. I have no experience with ARs and have a question about seat covers door cards and misc, interior parts.
I' m a corvair guy and I've joined for my father a 30 year owner of an 82 Italian red spider veloce. He has replaced the top and the guy did a great job. Top looks and fits perfectly - it should have been a tan top but oh well. Seats are sun baked toast at this point. Now dad wants to replace his seat covers. (he says only the seats, but f that, I m getting him all of it doors, boots etc.) But his trimmer strongly suggested he get teh replacement covers rather than have him cut customs.
He has an old catalogue with replacement seat covers in leather and vinyl. They have an entire interior kit. Unfortunately the company was bought out and only offers the covers and related pieces (cards **** boot etc.) in black. I have a black interior convertible and agree on the no black interior for convertibles principle if possible.
Dad would like to keep it original looking maybe a shade darker than tan- similar to a vintage rawlings baseball glove with brown leather. (just like my corvair forum tough posting pics after photo bucket changed - plus spam fighitng requires no images or links until 10 posts).
I'd like to get them from an alfa vendor trusted by the community. Any suggestions here? And to the admins, yes I should have used the search feature ( a common scold by the corvaircenter forum admins).
