I didn't take it that way honestly. I think it looks great. You should be proud of yourself.

I wasn't talking about what you did, you obviously sewed the welt separately, stapled it to one panel and then sewed that whole thing together. That would be two lines of stitching, one for the welt and another to sew it all together. I was referring to your statement where you said that the original seat cover was sewed together with one line of stitching. In order to do that, the welt and welt cord and the panels on either side would have to be all sewed with one line of stitching. All I said was that this can be done by an extremely experienced sewer, but that I wouldn't recommend it to a beginning sewer.

Speaking of color, I've gotten a couple of emails about exactly what color the fabric is. It does seem to show up differently in different pictures, primarily because some are shot with a flash and some are not. In the shots taken under florescent lighting (my garage) the fabric takes on a bit more orange or yellow tint. But in real life the color is more tan (actually called caramel by the manufacturer). Anyhow, in an attempt to kill two birds with one stone I just finished the second bucket and these shots are of the completed pair. The color in these pictures is just about spot on for what they are in real life.

Sweet

Hey CBoy, First off, super craftsmanship! Its easy to want an interior look, but doing it is a whole different ballgame. I like the seat design and style. What were they from or were they new seat bucks? Whats the headrest gonna look like? It reminds me of a retro bucket design in the Summit catalog, I forget the brand. The color is even close to what I need in my truck. Maybe ya'll can give me a clue as to what they would call more of a cream shade kinda like coffee with way too much cream? Again, nice work and to you, Dan & others thanks for the insights into upholstery work. olnolan

Those seats have a nice hot rod pedigree. They came out of this little coupe which was built by my good friend Jerry (454 Rattler here on HR.Com).



When he opted for an even lower profile seat (to give himself a little more headroom), he gave this set to me. He originally pulled them out of a wrecked Subaru...I don't know the year. He got the pair for just $5.00 so between the years they spent in his hot rod and now the upcoming years in my hot rod...they should receive some sort of award for best $5 seats EVER. (BTW, after seeing the pictures of the finished seats, Jerry emailed me this morning to say he now wants them BACK. )

I think the color you are aiming toward might be more what they call a "sand" color. But you can prowl around on the web and get all sorts of color charts. I think it really depends on what type and quality of fabric you want. Once you know that, and your price range, you can pull the color charts and get something that suits you.

That is nice of you to say, but I'm just a rookie at this and have very little to offer in the way of great insights or good advice. It's the seasoned vets like Dan and others who provide the really solid info.

Is this more the color you were looking for? Dan did this chair for us and I believe it is "sand".

The fabric is called Magnificent, it comes in 28 colors and has a 100% polyurethane surface like Ultraleather. I get it from one of my suppliers who imports it.

Hey Thanks For The Reply, Preciate It

CBOY, Thats too white. The big square in Dan's sample is closer. I'm open to suggestions. Can't decide on black seats,headliner,carpet,column & gauges. Or cream seats,headliner&carpet w/black steering column and gauges. Or cream seats, with everything else black. I bought the truck with the interior this color, don't know what its called and would like to work with it. What do ya'll think? Thanks for letting me share your thread Cboy.olnolan oh, heres a pic;

Another example of the internet, computers and cameras not being all that reliable in terms of hues and colors. The big square on Dan's sample is the exact color he used on our chair (the one in the pic above). I have the same sample book here at home and I just held the swatch up to the chair and its a perfect match. Also could be because of the lighting in our house when I took the shot. But that is Magnificent's "sand"...in both instances.

No, it's not. The big sample and the small sample in the row below the big sample the second over from the left is what it is, and it's called "Buff". "Sand" is the bottom row second over from the left. It's impossible to tell unless you can see it in person. You'd really have to have the swatch card to match it to your dash, 'cuz neither of those two looks close to the color of your dash.

Haa Haa, Lol

CBOY, Thats funny as hell. Looks like two totally different colors. Looks like if I decide on creamish color, I'll have to get actual samples to compare. Black is starting to seem like the easiest solution. Its hot as hell, but the truck will have a/c. olnolan

Yep, Dan, this is pushing me toward black. It's like when I went to the auto paint store to get pearl white urethane to match my boat. Lady says ok, came out with a ring of about 40 different versions of pearl white, which one you want? Nolan

You will be much happier with a contrasting color than you will trying to match the color to your dash. There's just no way you'll find anything close enough. Black is always a good choice.

Could they possibly put a different "big sample" on different swatch cards? Because I'm putting the big 'un right next to both buff and sand and my big 'un appears to be sand, not buff. But then my eyes are about as trustworthy as a politician on the stump. Perhaps some folks with better eyes then mine can convince me I'm seeing things.

The shot below is the big swatch above the swatch of Sand.



This second shot is the big swatch above the swatch of Buff.



And the last shot is the big swatch next to both...Buff is on the left and Sand is on the right.



They are darn close...but I'm still stickin' with Sand.
