Interior on a budget

I have a 1964 Chevrolet Biscayne that I purchased with a stripped out interior. Does anyone have experience with the 'autocraft' seat covers that JC Whitney sells? I was planning on buying a set of the leather graned vinyl pleated covers, and a few yards of matching pleated material for the door panels. The door panels should be fairly easy to make from thin plywood or lexan, I would think (they were flat, with bolt on armrests) I do have the remains of the old door panels with the curved metal that goes over the top of the door. Sound "do-able"? Any other suggestions for an inexpensive "no-sew" interior? Also, any suggestions on carpet suppliers?

Yes I have used their better( as opposed to the cheap set)dielectric pleat interior seat covers before. One on a stock 54 Chev coupe and on a 70 Chevy pickup. They fit very well, and the old truck interior still is in good shape after 12 years. The roll goods are easy to work with and when completed gives you a very serviceable interior for a good price.

Finally, I've been able to start on the interior of my 64 Biscayne 2dr! The seatcovers are from JC Whitney, made by Autocraft. The door panels will be made with the same pleated material. I did the rear seat today, here's a pic...

It looks a little lumpy in the photo, but not bad for a first timer, considering what I had to start with. The seat bottom uses only the stock seat base, with foam replacing the springs.
Now, can anyone tell me how to take the backrests (split back bench seat) off of the front seat so I can get started on it?
