    John, I have a question for you.

    I just got the original front seats from my '67 reupholstered, and I'm happy to say that they turned out very similarly to yours.

    My question is about your back seat. Was it reupholstered to match its original pattern?

    I don't have an original period rear seat for my '67. However, I do have a rear seat from a later CJ that I plan to have reupholstered to match the original late '60's rear seat pattern as closely as possible.

    If the reupholstered patterning on yours is true to the original upholstery pattern, these photos of yours are probably the best example I have to work from.

    Thanks very much, John!

    Maury

    Yes. He matched everything to my original seat upholstery. He even measured the width of the pleats to get it right
