Take a look at THE name in CHEVY UPHOLSTERY - the Hampton Coach company.
They do had have all the stuff for Chevy's from 1916 - 1954.  Take a look at
www.hamptoncoach.com or call 888 388 8726.  They sent a great catalog and if
you ask for samples they are FREE.  I have not ordered from them yet but
when I asked the list about them 2 to 3 weeks ago they got great reviews.

It's time for me to tackle getting my Suburban seats redone.  My plans are
powder coat the frames in a close to original color.  I also want to have
sets of covers made for the seats per a plan that we have  used with our
couch and love seat. . .nice standard conventionally installed upholstery as
a base but with slip on, form fitting, zip to hold in place seat covers that
go over the nice stuff for daily wear and tear.  The base is in upholstery
fabric; the covers are upholstery grade denim.

I really ought to take the seats down to the springs and replace the

Where can I get original style padding?  I've got most of the regular
catalogs.  Many of them have upholstery kits, but I don't think that they
show the burlap (jute?) style padding.

Or should I not worry about trying for original?   Most shops these days
use foam, don't they?

Any suggestions?
