4th Gen Houndstooth Seat Covers - Who and Where to Buy
« on: May 26, 2015, 01:55:03 AM »
I am looking to upgrade to a pair of 4th gen front seats for my 69 coupe.  I want to go with the houndstooth covers.  I understand that several manufacturers make them, such as PUI, PMI, and some others I do not remember.  Who has used any of these and what is your opinion of them?  Also, where to buy them?  Year One, Ricks, Classic Collectors, etc.?

I have a Classic Collectors credit card, which says I get 15% off my order, but find that the shipping is almost $50...so it might be a wash.  Any coupon codes for any of these guys, or any free shipping offers out there?  Thanks for any and all suggestions.

I also see there are manufacturers like Legendary Auto Interiors and Distinctive Industries.  Anyone use either of these.  It appears the Legendary seat covers are more money.  Are they better, or just cost more?

I just bought a Legendary seat cover for my sisters 1971 Chevelle. they were recommended by my interior guy. He said they were much better quality seam wise and overall fit. It did take a month to get a front cover. They only make them when they get orders for them.

Legendary has some of the best quality out there, and where I prefer to buy all my interior parts when I can.   I've used PUI, it's okay, but have always been happier with Legendary's fit and finish and overall quality, especially when wanting something as close to correct as possible.  Their stitching and seams/patterns are the closest to OEM I've seen.

Also, I am seeing that some suppliers sell 4th gen seat covers and distinguish between 93-96 and 97-02, and some do not.  All 4th gen look the same to me, but what do I know.  Does anyone know what the difference is?  I would hate to get the wrong covers for my seats.
