    Seat Covers

    Time to recover my seats, the 2 year only MK3 type. Moss usually has a sale on upholstery goods in the spring. Should I wait on that, or what is the quality of VB covers that are a tad less expensive?

    Moving this to the Spridgets forum. (Personally I'd wait for Moss to go on sale)

    Thanks for your opinion Boss. Tried to get it out for wider variety of responses.

    just trying to keep threads where they belong. You can repost in the Pub if you like. I did leave a link in the pub that redirects to the thread. Feel free to post again in the pub and I’ll leave it alone.

    Re: Seat Covers

    i bought these off ebay and am quite happy - I did pay someone to install them in part because he could do it better and in part because I couldn;t quite make sense of it all. The red beading doesn't quite match the carpet but I am happy and far and away the best price I could find.

    I used the VB covers for my '69 Sprite. The only thing was they didn't include the '69 only headrests, so I had to go to an upholstery shop for those. I've had them in the car for five years and they've held up well. If you search the forum, you should be able to find the thread which has pictures.

    Re: Seat Covers

    OK! I remember the sale is in the spring sometime?
    I can save 10% w/current pricing, might cover shipping costs; does anyone remember how many percent discount in previous sales?

    ISTR it has varied. Some were 10% and some 15%. Got the door cards and panels on a 15% sale, didn't do seats.
