Hello looking to replace my seat cover and was wondering if anyone has recommendations on who sells the best replacement. Looking for as close to original as possible . Jim carters look good to me but most of the other vendors don't have pics of there's. and jim's are on a 60 day backorder.



thanks Justin

I'm wanting the same for my '52 COE. I'm waiting on Jim Carter's myself.

I would wait as well, unless I could see the cover first hand. I purchased a seat cover from another (very popular) vendor here several years ago and it was made of very stretchy, ill fitting, baggy vinyl material, - clearly inferior to the one I later purchased from Jim Carter.

- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

If the French stitch referenced is the same as a French seam it is like the seam used on the inside of Levis blue jeans and other clothing to make a strong, durable seam.
