Custom Made Car Seat Covers

When fabricating or installing an automotive seat cover, it's important to get a snug fit. If custom seat covers are properly sized, they protect the original upholstery and extend the lifespan of the seat. A vehicle with spotless upholstery retains its value far better than a car with a trashed interior. Custom seat covers for cars easily pay for themselves by boosting a vehicle's value on the resale market.

Leather Car Seat Installation

Mac's installs leather and fabric seat covers & automotive interior kits from all the leading manufacturers, including: World Upholstery & Trim, Acme Headliners, Sierra Auto Tops, Moss Motors, PUI Upholstery, Auto Custom Carpets, Roadwire, Katzkin, Gahh, Robbins, Ruff Tuff and Distinctive Industries.

We're a preferred installer for all the top manufacturers. Being a preferred installer is important because proper installation saves time and money. Fly-by-night installers make mistakes. Some mistakes are repairable, others are not.

Ruff Tuff Seat Covers

Custom crafted Ruff Tuff© seat covers are much better than off-the-shelf products. They're affordable, durable and they're guaranteed to fit like a glove. Best of all, you can personalize the look; unlike many manufacturers, Ruff Tuff fabricates a seat cover only after it's been ordered.

The company uses the finest quality Velour, Tweed, Sof-Touch, Saddle Blanket, Exotics, Dura EZ-Care, Carbon Fiber and Camo fabrics.

Here's how Ruff Stuff describes their manufacturing process:


"Once you have placed your order our experienced material handlers pull the CAD generated pattern for your specific year, make, and model. Then using the materials of your choice, they cut them using our precision cutting machine."

"When the pieces arrive at the sewing department, our highly-skilled seamstresses painstakingly assemble each part with a specific vehicle attachment system. When assembly is completed, the seat cover is sent to Quality Control."

"When the custom seat cover arrives at Quality Control, a highly trained technician examines your seat cover to insure that the product exceeds industry standard. The seat cover is then packaged and shipped." — Ruff Tuff

How to Clean & Maintain Leather

garrett premium leather

While leather is well-known for its durability, it still requires proper care for maximum longevity. How to clean leather depends on the type of leather, extent of wear and the substance you're trying to remove. Here are Garrett Leather's primary cleaning tips for standard aniline leather. These tips do not apply if your leather has a nap (nubuck leather).

  1. Wipe your leather occasionally with a dry or slightly moist, soft, clean cloth to prevent dust particles and other airborne debris from accumulating on the surface. Simply moisten the cloth with a small amount of pure water. Never use furniture polish, ammonia based cleaners, or harsh soaps. These products may damage the finish on leather.
  2. When spills do occur, time is of essence. It is best to act immediately and blot up excess liquid with a dry, clean cloth. If necessary, use Mild Cleanser to absorb the spill and clean the entire stain completely. It is best to let the wet area dry naturally. Do no use hair dryers or other direct sources of heat to dry the leather quickly, as this could cause further damage.
  3. If a spill is caused by butter, oil, or grease, do not use water or Mild Cleanser. Instead, use a dry cloth to absorb the excess grease. Leave the leather alone to allow the spill to dissipate into the leather naturally over a short period of time.
  4. We are often asked about ink stains on leather. Again, when faced with an unwanted ink stain, it is important to act quickly. Use Ink Remover to remove the stain as soon as possible. Simply rub the Ink Remover stick over the stain to apply the ink remover. Allow the ink remover to sit for 30 to 60 seconds. Then take a dry, clean cloth to remove both the ink remover and the stain. Do not rub aggressively. Reapply ink remover, let sit, and gently rub off as needed until the stain is completely gone. Ink Remover works best when applied to the stain when the stain occurs. Permanent inks are not removable from leather.
  5. For best results, we recommend periodically applying protector to nourish your leather, retain its softness, and protect it from future stains. Garrett's Leather Care Kit has everything you need for long term care, including cleaner, protector, ink remover, and detailed instructions.
 

Ferrari Custom Seat Covers

Elvis drove one. So did TV's Batman, Adam West.

We're talking about the Ferrari Dino 308 GT4. Introduced in 1973, the Dino shocked the automotive world with its sharp lines. Its angular shape was a radical departure from the elegant curves of Ferrari's previous mid-engine models. It was also Ferrari's first production eight cylinder car. Sales were lousy when it hit the market, but by the time production ended in 1980 the Dino 308 GT4 was Ferrari’s third-best-selling model.

The seats from this Dino 308 GT4 were 43 years old and pretty well trashed. As you can see, new seat covers were long overdue. Instead of upholstering the seats in the original style, the owner wanted a custom look.

    New Seat Covers Installed

His idea was to upholster the front seats so they matched the back. The back seats were horizontally ribbed with a suede-like fabric. We found a matching fabric then measured and matched the rear seats with identical back-stitched pleats.

Customizing an iconic car is always tricky; part of the appeal is maintaining the car the way it looked when it was brand new. In this instance, the changes work. Maybe the owner should have been on the original design team.

 

Range Rover Refit

The second generation Range Rover was manufactured for the US market between 1994 and 2002. It was the first Range Rover equipped with a plush interior and all the bells & whistles we now associate with a luxury SUV. We've noticed a lot of folks are purchasing these second generation Range Rovers, then rebuilding or refitting them. The owner of this one wanted to upgrade the interior beginning with brand new leather seat covers.

Katzkin manufactures excellent replacement seat covers, but the car owner preferred something more distinctive. Instead of standard grade seat leather, we suggested using the sort of leather found inside a Bentley. He liked the idea, so we fabricated custom seat covers using the finest available perforated car seat leather. As you can see, they turned out great.

    Seat Heater Set to Medium

Perforations in the seat leather were necessary to accommodate the heating/cooling mechanisms we installed. Strictly speaking, our seat heaters do not require perforations, but they are necessary for the seat coolers which blow cooled air through the leather perfs. The heater and cooler both have three settings for maximum comfort.

The total interior refit also included a new sound system, new carpet and a sound dampening treatment to quiet the ride. When it rolled out of our shop, this classic Range Rover had a brand new luxury interior. From the inside - for all intents and purposes -- it was a new Range Rover.

Custom Seat Covers for 1978 Datsun 200SX

1978 Datsun 200SX

The Datsun 200SX was a nameplate Nissan used for export cars based on its Silvia design. It was principally manufactured for the North American market. It was sold through the mid-eighties when Nissan retired the Datsun brand.

This Datsun 200SX is from 1978. As you'd expect, the original seat covers and cushion foam are completely trashed. This car is old and not especially valuable to collectors, so OEM style replacement covers are no longer being manufactured. The only alternative is building covers from scratch. Fortunately, we're really good at that.

    Duramax Fabric

Before fabricating the new covers, we repaired the cushions. As is often the case, the foam is most damaged on the side where the driver gets in and out. We rebuilt the damaged sections of foam then went to work on the new covers.

The original seat fabric from the late-seventies was no longer available, so we used a fabric called Duramax. Duramax is one hundred percent polyolefin. It's reasonably soft, stain resistant and lasts just about forever. The color turned out to be a pretty good match. We created a perfect fit by using the old covers as a pattern. We also matched the original design using the same welting and stitch pattern, then built headrests just like the ones that came with the car.

Custom Crafted Porsche Seat Covers

Custom Porsche Seat Cover

blue porsche carerraPorsche manufactures remarkably engineered sports cars. They don't cut corners on interiors either.

When it's time for new seat covers a lot of Porsche owners simply have us reorder and install the original style in the original color. There's nothing wrong with that; they're excellent seat covers.

For the demanding Porsche owner who craves a little originality (without going overboard) there's another option, a custom made seat cover from Mac's Upholstery. Our skilled craftsmen fabricate distinctive, perfect-fit Porsche seat covers and interior upholstery.

Here's an example of a custom seat cover we built for a Porsche Carrera.

It's hand-crafted from the finest available automotive upholstery leather. The leather is thick, soft and luxurous, similar to glove leather without the stretch. The color matches the car's existing interior. The stitching is flawless. It's also perforatated throughout. The tiny perfs are necessary for the seat heater/cooler to operate properly. Just like Porsche, we don't cut corners.

Porsche's OEM seat covers are excellent. Our custom made covers are a step above.

Leather Seat Covers or Vinyl Seat Covers

vinyl or leatherThere are mixed opinions about the desirability of leather seat covers. Some think they look and feel much better than vinyl. Others insist that vinyl has improved so much in recent years that it's hard to tell the difference.

One thing everybody agrees on; when vinyl seat covers first came out they were brittle, slippery and cheap looking. But, that was then, this is now. Today's premium vinyl seat covers from Katzkin, Ruff Tuff or Gahh are nearly indistinguishable from leather. Here's what one of our customers had to say about a vinyl seat cover we made for him, "The seat looks great and the synthetic leather is better than I imagined. I thought it would look more plastic than it does".

In addition to looking good, vinyl is usually less expensive and more durable than leather. Some of our affordable marine grade vinyls boast an impressive durability factor of one million double rubs. By comparison, leather's durability is around 100,000 double rubs.

Leather does have tremendous appeal, however. To begin with, it feels, smells and looks like the real thing because it is the real thing. Leather grain softens and developes a distinctive patina over time. Vinyl can't match those characteristics.

Leather's more subtle qualities include breathability. Garrett Leather puts it this way "As a natural product, leather is porous, which allows it to “breathe”. This means it remains cool to the touch and adjusts to body temperature, making it a comfortable option for any setting".

There are advantages to both vinyl and leather. If you want leather but worry about the cost give us a call. We recently replaced this damaged leather driver's seat with an identical leather seat cover built to strict OEM specs for half the price!

...and pat yourself on the back if you chose swatch number one as leather.

Land Rover Dormobile Seats

land rover dormobileDormobile is a UK-based conversion company. They've been transforming Land Rovers into European style camping vans since the 1950s. Their calling card is a distinctive hinged canopy roof.

If you've seen one around Seattle consider yourself lucky. There aren't many Land Rover Dormobiles on this side of the pond.

One of them is owned by a Mac's Upholstery customer. In addition to the patented hinged roof, the company also developed a special type of seat called the Dormatic folding seat. Dormatic seats are designed to fold into bunks at night. You can squeeze as many as four bunks inside a fully decked-out Land Rover Dormobile.

The Dormatic seats in his Land Rover were in bad shape so he brought them to us. He was so serious about restoring his Dormobile he had the seat frames powder-coated for extra protection. We could have fabricated a set of perfect fit custom seat covers, but the owner wanted to keep things as authentic as possible. For that reason, we ordered original style seat covers from Dormobile. And guess what; they didn't fit right.

    Original Style Seat Covers

The vinyl used for the original style seat covers was stiff as a board, but our experienced craftsmen were able to make it work. In addition to the seat covers, we replaced the seat springs and improved the padding with polyurethane foam. We also reinforced the original seat suspension with burlap backing.

With the seat restoration complete, the Dormobile was out the door looking better than ever.

Replace OEM Seat Cover

Some like to trick their ride when it's time for new seat covers. Those car owners often go with a custom seat cover from Katzkin, Ruff Tuff or Gahh because top manufacturers offer endless color and style variations.

Others like their car way it is. For those folks OEM replacement seat covers are a better alternative. This front seat from a 2001 Audi TT needed a new cover. The owner liked the old one, so we ordered and installed an identical seat cover from Audi.

By staying with the original style, the owner didn't have to replace the entire interior. The passenger and rear seat covers were still in good shape, so we only replaced the bottom section of the driver's seat. As you can see, the color is a little off, but it should look fine after a few months of normal wear.

Replace BMW Seat Cover

Recovering a car seat with an identical OEM seat cover may seem straightforward, but it's not. You'll end up with wrinkles and loose fabric unless the installation is done properly.
