w108 seats

I was intending on having my seats recovered on my 1971 280SEL. Sure is damn expensive. just wondering if any other seats from a different model will bolt up and work?

Don't go cheap - I did and it was a big mistake - you want to spend bananas you'll get monkeys. Get it done right the first time you'll be much happier. Trust Me.

look at www.uphoulstery(dot)com. I've bought two interiors through them and was pleased by the price and quality. Good stuff!

Are you looking to replace worn out seats, or just faded ones? These guys also sell dye kits...

IT iis a necessity to replace the seat pads also.
No cheating on the seating,
they are an integral part of the suspension.
