[DML] Re: Hot Seat!

I have coth seats as well, and will never go back to leather. I'm up
here in Las Vegas, and can tell you that the seats are a must have for
anyone who sweats. You'll stay nice and cool in the summer, and will
quickly warm up the seats in the winter.

Any good upholtery shop should be able to make a set of cloth seat
covers for you. And by good seat covers, I mean that they keep and
maintain the original stiching. I don't know who Don Steger uses, but
he says DMCGG has been using the same shop for a number of years, and
they're quite familiar with DeLorean stiching. They did my seats, and
they turned out fantastic. Both the stiching on the front, as well as
the back of the seats is a perfect match. 5 years, and hardly no
discoloration, unlike alot of the interior. And I've had a a couple of
people in the past who actually thought that these seats were factory
issued. It's a nice sturdy cloth, with strong matching stiching. It's
a little darker than the gray interior, but will match either black or
gray interior perfectly. Plus if you do sweat, you can't see the dampness.

The choice is your's as to what kind of fabric to use. I've seen
several cars on eBay since mine that use the exact same type of
material, that have had the seats done by DMCGG. And I does look good.
When you choose your own cloth, color is of course up to you (you can
even choose two different types of inserts), but there are 4 rules to
making the seats look good. Sure everything is your choice since this
is you car, but these can help it to be customized, with looking as
factory as possible:
1. Don't mix and match cloth with vinyl. It looks like a hack job.
2. Don't have piping installed onto the seats.
3. Do not use fuzzy cloths or velvet.
4. Stick with factory stiching.
