I plan on re-covering my factory tan seats as a winter project. Doing them over in the plain factory tan seems boring. Has anyone re-done their seats differently? Any pics of what and where you had it done would be appreciated.

Before anyone suggests after market seats, I like having the headrest speakers, and I think my build is too big for something like the Nakamae seats (pretty sweet looking though)...

Thanks,

JK

If you don't mind the idea of vinyl seats, check out the recovers from Kwik Tops http://www.kwiktops.com/cat--MIATA-SEAT-COVER-UPHOLSTERY-KITS--miata_seat_upholstery.html

They can do two-tone in either vinyl or leather, or with a cloth insert down the middle. Right now I'm torn between two-tone black & tan with perforated black vinyl for the middle section, or tan vinyl with tan velour middle sections. I requested some material samples from Kwik Tops, and they were very nice, and priced much better than the leather options out there.

Have a look through the garage and forum for Joeyb's car - he dismantled his Roadster seats and rebuilt and retrimmed them into what are probably my favourite looking seats.

Ok, those were done to 'headrest' seats, but the inspiration is still there!

Yeah, I have seen his seats before - Pretty nice. I like the increased side bolsters and bottom cushion, but it may be a bit more than I would want to spend. I am still trying to decide. Katzkins are priced pretty reasonable as long I do it myself. I am thinking of asking a local auto upholstery shop what the $$ would be to modify a Katzkin set similar to Joey B's seats.
