Blue & white houndstooth

Does anyone know where I might find blue & white houndstooth material for seat backs? Profit auto interiors has it for $120 per yard, little steep for me.

Thanks

Check with these people: CLICK HERE They have it, and it's going to be pricey, but probably not $120 a yard.

Are you sure it's blue and white? I've seen other colors besides black and white, but not blue and white.

They told me the had a medium blue and white. I know this isn't a factory color but I have a dark blue interior and I've thought about doing this for a unique look if I can find something that is reasonable.

That's also headliner fabric bonded to foam. It would not be suitable for seat covers.

Blue & black hounstooth

I was just wondering if you ever found any houndstooth for reasonable. I need about 2 yards of blue and black houndstooth and I'm in NC as well. I've spoke to SMS and other places but the best I can find it for is $95/yd plus shipping from California!!! Also looking for a good matching blue vinyl/leather/leather substitute locally.....any sugestions.

I haven't looked for any vinyl, my upholsterer is supplying that. As far as the houndstooth goes the only place I could find blue & white is through SMS at 85 per yard. You might try ProFit Auto Interiors. They have houndstooth but what I've seen they're higher than SMS. I hated to give the 85 but I bought 3 yards and received it today. It looks good, I just hope it looks good once the seats are finished.

Sounds good man. How bad was shipping though?

From Spruce Pine, bout an hour north of Asheville. I'm in Statesville once or twice a month in the winter quail hunting. What kind of ride are you working on?

It's a 1972 Chevy Super Cheyenne short bed. It's been built for a while but I'm wanting to add some bucket seats out of a 2012 silverado. I want them to look more like factory buckets so I'm removing the headrests and hoping to cover in houdstooth.

You can found..******************************************* ****************************** The traditional colours are black and white, although we make houndstooth in modern versions with more colorful substitutions. It can be used in constructing clothes like womens dress, Jackets, Skirts and home furnishing items.

Except that the original question was where to find blue and white houndstooth fabric that was original to the car in question, we are talking about car seats not clothing or drapes, this thread is 9 months old, and advertising in the tech forums is not allowed.
