Bench seat cover

I ordered a split bench seat cover from a west coast restoration supplier and didn,t get it to my upholstery shop for 2 1/2 years. It appears that the cover which is for a 1970 Skylark ragtop is about 5" too narrow. The suppl;ier says it must have shrunk. I do not think so. I am returning it and will work out a solution and I am having the upholsterer make custom covers that are similair to stock. Can plastic shrink that much? The covers are PUI.

No, there is no way vinyl seat covers (or any type of seat cover for that matter) could possibly shrink that much. I'm surprised they are willing to take it back after that long a time. Are you getting a full refund?

According to the suppliers' spokesperson, if I pay the shipping they will look at it and send the proper one if I pay that freight also. I am going to send it back and hopefully get some other stuff I need instead of a seat cover I no longer need.

Go for it, that's pretty good of them and you're ahead one way or the other. Otherwise, all you have is a seat cover that will never fit.

Used to be that you could drive to Tijuana and get an entire roll and tuck interior fo 200$. This was about 40 years ago but I would think that customs would cut it up pretty good nowadays. HaHa
