I looked long and hard when I had the bench for a replacement because the tweed cloth sections between the vinyl was toast. There were none, So I pulled the entire seat cover and had an upholstery shop replace the cloth and reused the vinyl. Cost less than $100.

I would like to do something like this in mine:

This obviously is not a Comanche bench but this is the basic idea of what i'd like to do with mine.Anyone have a guess as to what this might cost? I wanted to go the leather route but I have heard a lot of people say that vinyl is the better way to go. I am thinking white with black piping would look pretty awesome. Toying around with the idea of a white headliner to match.

Mine was completely rebuild(even the foam) and Covered with red and Black leather by an upholstery shop, I installed a New red carpet too and I covered The headliner with Black leather myself.

Caution:

Don't use that dupli Color Spray!!!!!!

If The Seat will become hot from Sun, you will glue on it!!!!

Try a Good Color-Spray for Lexan Bodys for e.g. 1:10 Scale saloon racers!!!

But try to Spray a Little Spot First, let it dry and then Test The quality!!!!!!

is Good a brand? or do you mean just a quality paint made for lexan car bodies? Like Tamiya? would that still work on fabric?

I changed my BIL's blue CJ seats to black - - - Forgot the brand name but pretty sure it was Rust Oleum & it was a DYE - - Held up well for years - was not a DD, but no cracks, chips, fade, Nada - - - The bad part - - No longer available - - NO vinyl dyes are available to the US general public TMK - - Drug addict/Kids getting high/Saving us from ourselves thing - - - Dye is the only thing I'd use on seats - Could be an upholstery shop could help in selling some real vinyl dye - Dunno - - - - - I've used both SEM and DUPLICOLOR for awhile/recently - - Both good stuff IMO - - SEM usually costs a little more, but has a few colors others do not, such as a maroon for some Corvette interiors (matches the Jeep MJ/XJ darker burgundy color well) - - - Read the fine print & You'll find Sem/D Color are coatings - Made for plastics sure, but not flexible enough for lasting results on a seat.

SEM 15023 is the maroon/dark burgundy part #
