Its getting time to recover my 74 Spider seats. I intend to do this myself. Kits are offered from World Upholstery, IAP, Vicks and Centerline. Any opinions as to the best? I am leaning toward World for no especial reason but sinc ethey are a manufacturer I would not be surprised if the others are the World Product. Terry

I can't speak for other vendors but at least the upholstery kits we sell at Centerline are imported from Italy and not produced by World Upholstery.

I have not seen a kit from World Upholstery so this is NOT a comment on their product, just a statement of fact.

Hi Terry,

Make sure the foam in your seats are good, because no matter who you buy it from, it may not fit correctly or look bigger then your seat and that's because the foam has worn out. You may have to pack it with some new foam. Good luck!

HAd the pleasure to install a set for a 79 Spider from World. Fit nicely, with no real issues at all. I orderd the vinyl and it was delivered in 10 days, and took 5 hours to do both seats. Looks mint. No knocks to Centerline, of which is getting an order from me tonight for filters and such.... Good luck

I too, am planning on recovering the seats in my 79 spider. Thing is, they are seats from , what looks like, a 91- has that funny sponge like insert in the seat and back. I am guessing that the seat covers do not have that sponge like material, or at least I hope not. Any experience with this from any of you guys?

As I've recommended before, I'd check with a good local upholsterer to see what he would charge to rebuild and recover the seats. You might be surprised at how reasonable the cost is.
