I would imagine that it would'nt be that hard. You can take the stock covers off and pattern your fabric after them.

I guess most of us don't consider that an option because we're not seamstresses lol.

lol..

i remember when i was gonna custom upholster some celica seats in red and black leather...

go to the library and get a book on doing interiors... THEN see if you still wanna reupholster those seats.

and you better have an industrial machine if you're gonna do it right.

If ur talking about just refabricing the stock seats, then give it a try!!! If ur talking about making the frame or trying to fiberglass up some racing seats, then don't bother. It won't be safe, I wouldn't mess w/ that, they may not hold up in an accident!!
