Ford F-250 Seat

Here is an F-250 seat I just finished. I went with the same pleating but added the Titanium Silver to give it a little more look.

Which is an automotive or marine grade vinyl. It's also a grain pattern made by BoltaSoft. I didn't know there was a silver, is that Heidi Soft too?

Funny you mention "marine grade" here. By accident, I just found a local place that sells upholstery supplies . I picked up 1 1/2 yards of marine grade vinyl made by Spraulding. I'm thinking that marine grade must be as good or better than automotive grade since it has to repel salt and water. Am I correct? This stuff seem to be much thicker than the ****en that I picked up for my practice project with the stretched out buttons from my other post.

Marine grade and automotive grade are pretty much the same. They both need to repel dirt, oil, mildew, and be UV stabilized. Some vinyls may not have the mildew resistance and still are automotive grade. They can't be marine grade if they're not mildew resistant.

So wouldn't it make sense to opt for the marine grade if it's available in the color or pattern that you need?

If its going in a car, you really don't need mildew resistance. If you want the mildew resistance, go for it. Some mills call their vinyl transportation grade, which covers everything. You really have to check the manufacturers specs to make sure you're getting what you want.
