One sneaky trick for installing kit-type seat covers is to toss the material into a clothes dryer for a few minutes on the low heat setting. It will soften up and be a lot easier to handle, with less of a tendency to pucker and wrinkle, if it's warm. Setting it out in the open for a couple of hours on a hot, sunny day also works, if the weather in your area is cooperative. Jerry
The murder victim was drowned in a bathtub full of Rice Krispies and milk. The coroner blamed the crime on a cereal killer!

Here is another option. On three of my trucks I have called Jim Carter and ordered the fabric sent to me. You have to talk to a sales person who will get back to you with a price. Using two different upholstery shops I have the local places deal with my padding, broken springs,etc. Both shops commented on the fine quality of the seat material.
Since it appears Jim Carter's seat cover kit is still on backorder, I found a seat cover from The Filling Station. Anyone have any experience with that product, or should I just wait for Jim to get restocked??
Re-read the thread: Jim Carter seat covers are not really on "backorder" per se, they are sewn to spec when you place your order.
If you are interested in 47-55st Suburban covers, please send me a PM with your phone number. JC is not mindful of the fact that there were two cushion-set sizes during that period. His seamstress is up on this difference
By the way, in case this is not posted/noted in above posts: JC's installation kits are inadequate - they are missing a key layer (you and your passengers' butts will suffer/feel-it).
