    More of a thumbs up to www.jeepsterguru.com then anything else. He did my seats while I was away. They where waiting for me when I got back from my work trip, two weeks turn around. All and all very happy, I would recommend him if anyone needs upholstery work.

    All in all the seats werent in terrible shape but they were getting worse.

    I supplied the center vinyl, which I got from SMS auto fabrics out of Oregon. He did the rest. I ordered 1.5 yards and I probably have enough left over to do the rear seat.

    Those look awesome. The center material looks like a real good match to original. Nice job he did. I have been thinking about sending a set from my 71 Jeepster/Commando to him.

    You know, I think it was. Its a lot more then if I just ordered the Smitty built ones. But I am sucker for originality. It was way cheaper then anyone local could have done them. I asked around and I was looking into the $1200-$1500.
    JeepsterGuru, got them done for about $580 with the shipping back to my house North Seattle area. But I think it really comes down to the amount of foam work they have to do. I never asked though.

    Started life out as a /6, 3 on the tree, Coronet (just Coronet not even a delux). Day time rear view mirror only, one side view mirror, radio/ cig lighter/ heater/ power steering delete, no chrome, no power brakes, no trunk light I mean bear bones only option was a two speed windshield wiper motor. It took some doing and some building and a few really good mopar guys but you wouldnt know it was never anything but a factory 426 car....except the vin theres always the vin.

    Seats look great!

    Is that the narrow striped material like what was used on the early Renegade I's?

    WOW, can't remember the last time I saw a real Hemi in a car. I love it. When I was a kid, I had a pair of 70 Road Runners, each had the 383. Seemed everyone else was running a Hemi in their Chryslers. The I had the 340's and 360's, but never the Hemi. Oh well, I'm not dead yet, there is still time............................if I could just stop working on Jeeps for a while. :censored:

    Not sure about the renegade but it is the same material that was in my '71 when I bought it. The seats were original to the JEEP. I like that material/design a lot.

    They look awesome! If you don't mind me bugging a little more, was the 580 including the cost of vinyl or just his labor/shipping? Either way I think that's very reasonable. Just trying to see what I would have to budget if I wanted to get a set done, looks like he would be the man.

    I only supplied the center vinyl. as he doesnt have it. the black vinyl he supplied. I would ask him for a qoute or talk to him directly. I think its also dependent on the condition of your seat.
    I paid the shipping there. The 580 was the shipping back, black vinyl, foam work and sewing with.
    Also I spent the money on a 24x24x24 box from UPS I it make it easier as he shipped out back in same box
