Looking for a Canadian source ..

Post by grassy on Fri Nov 06, 2015 8:21 am

Is there such a thing ?

I am looking at re skinning the front bench seat that I am making a couch out of ...would prefer to buy from a Canadian source..

If not, I shall go south...if I am forced to, who have a good quality unit..

The one I have has rips along the seams..would prefer not to fix because it is old and the  unit is going to be well used...

Thanks
ian.

Just an addendum... I had assumed that since it came out of a 2 door, the seats would recline further..is there any mods you can do to make this so ?

Are you looking for "factory" front seat covers ? PG Classic's has some covers and they're from NB, maybe they would have what you need .

Doesn't seam to carry them. Very limited colour selection. Too bad.

Thanks
Ian.

O-Taw-Wa ? Darn... I believe they actually did some fabrication..odd place to move to..

I never noticed it before but the seats are 2 tone...was this an option ?

The colour is Golden Fawn but an American retailer has suggested the colour is Ember Gold D2Y3. I have found this colour but not my year duster..have to look at my door jam.

Thoughts ?

Ian.

That 25% went up to 33%, which is worse.

I was being generous thinking the dollar was at $1.10 this time last year...now $1.35....I doubt they adjusted their prices....nice way to make a few extra bucks....although I imagine sales have slowed...
