as far as holding up, its not UV, stain or wear resistant so I doubt it would last long in a daily automotive environment. tinted windows a garage and some scotchguard will extend the life some but denim jeans will wreak havoc eventually.
Thanks for the info. Will consider, but still gonna spend some time looking for some upholstery.
