After getting sick and tired of looking at, and sitting in, seats that were falling apart, I bit the bullet and got new upholstery. Yes, it is TMI and the piping is a bit too big, but it fits my budget.
Old passenger seat:
Newly covered driver's seat:
It was a bit of a chore, to say the least. But it beats paying someone money I don't have to do what I can do.
New seat foams were procured, too, as the originals were coming to pieces. The only bits that were worth saving (and survived being removed) was the lower portion of the driver's seat, lower section of the rear seat and both headrests. Everything else was falling apart at the seams or was cracked/torn.
It sure makes the car look a whole lot better, if nothing else.
I also replaced the bulbs in the instrument cluster with LEDs. They're actually easy to see now.
And in the HVAC controls, too.
