Thank you for the replies. I'll take a closer look at them and see just how good they are. I can pick up both top and bottom for $40. They are black, and would work, but ideally should be sable/brown. I paid some a-hole local to redo them for $250 in the correct color and fabric, and they sat on them for 3 months and didn't do a f-ing stitch! I kicked their ass, got my money back and have been driving around with a bare rear interior since. Do-It-Myself seems like the way to go at this point.

I love it when a plan falls together. Got an email from the junkyard (part of the "tool club") and HOT DOG! Private "half-price" sale on some stuff this weekend, including SEATS!

 

Think I might yank the 5-speed while I'm up there. Condition unknown, but worth a gamble for around $80, no? Maybe get motivated and grab the rear end, too.

UPDATE (If anybody cares): Went to the junkyard, pulled the 5-speed, removed the seat covers from the frames, paid $2.99 each! Got motivated the other day and bought 2 pieces of 1" foam, compressed the frames of the original seats and got busy. Not perfect, but good enough and certainly better than what I had. A little extra material on the top corners, but overall looks okay. The bottom turned out real good.

 

Whole job done for under $20. Got the 5-speed for $80.

 

I'm such a cheap-skate.

Good job. And a 5-speed for $80!

 

Cheap-skate? I like to call it being frugal.
