Hi all,

I'm the proud owner of a Sebring MX. My father built the car in 1999.

The driver's seat cover has separated on the edge and the local upholstery shop says they can't repair it. They want a fortune to replace it.

Does anyone know where I can buy replacements?

THANKS!!

Billy Bob

If the seats are the original ones that came with the kit, the vinyl that covers them isn't of the best quality and has probably sun-burnt over time. My guess is that the upholstery shop doesn't want to repair them because any new stitches they make will have a high chance of tearing through the material, making for a short lasting repair. CR went out of business a long time ago so new seat covers are not available.

Your options are to either find an upholstery shop that can re-upholster the seats for a reasonable price, or swap the seats for some different ones entirely. Quite a few forum members have fit 1st or 2nd generation Mazda MX5/Miata seats in their cars (bear in mind this may require some modification to the seat rails).

I've been putting off taking care of the same issue in my car if that's any consolation

Thanks, David.

I was hoping the seats were maybe a replica of another car's seats, like an MG TC or something similar, and that maybe Moss Motors or some shop like Moss Motors might have covers available.

I'll keep looking around. If anyone else has any info please post here!

THANKS!

Hey Billy,
Can you post a picture ?
I might have what you need for the price of postage.
And ditto what David said. Those Mazda seats are pretty cool
and much safer than any low-back seat.

Yeah, no. Not just color, but look at the direction of the stitching. Only have the one.

Monrob22 has a pair of seat covers in red for sale.
If that color works, you can check the price with him.
