Alright I had a cheap little idea for some old school hot rod seat covers. I think it adds a little something for the shows till we get the interior done. What do you think?

I likey!

That truly is a "classic" hot rod (the original hot rods) staple.
Actually, that is quite similar to something I am thinking of to integrate tartan into my interior too. Only using wool fabric.

Idea:
If you, your wife, or a good friends can sew, what about getting a CHEAP seat cover set and sew the blankets to the covers. That way, they won't fall off, esp. on the front buckets.
They worked so well on hot rods thanks to the simple bench seats and little shaping.

Anyways, I like it!

Great look. Colors go well together.

But...I...can't....stop...staring....at....the....white....walls.

I know I've said it before, but they look so nice.

On my idea of recovering aftermarket covers . . .
CHECK for any warning of seat mounted airbags!
Our boxes HAVE them.
Many seat covers are NOT designed for them.
The issue is that there MUST be a "blow out" section for the air bags to work properly when needed.

I looked a bit myself at the local O'Reilly's to get some to use as a "shell" to make tartan seats.
In the end, I got none, as they all (at least the ones I saw) said "no airbags" in some form or another (variable verbology).

So, it is still a good idea overall, but you just must be VERY careful on which ones you use as the base and where/how you recover them.
