Seat Repair or New Seat ?
I have a '66 Mustang with pony interior. The seats are in great shape with the exception of a small tear or seperation that has just started on the drivers side where the bottom and side come together. Im wondering if this can be sewed back together or if its better to get a whole new seat. Im on a limited budget and dont want it to seperate any further.

Hi, I'm having the same problem. I was told by an upholstery guy that it is best to change both covers.
1. The color will be hard to match.
2. The torn seat is very difficult to fix.
3. It's not cheap.Most of the guys that work with car seats are very expensive.
4. Next choice is to find a guy that do covers for couches and living room seats, perhaps that will be cheaper.
I hope that this could be of help to you.
