Wink Help Handy Choose Some New Seats for His PT Vert!

The cloth seats in the 2nd Gen PT's are just not that attractive. And they just don't match the "sportiness" of the rest of my car.




I've considered finding some leathers our swapping in an OEM set out of a different car. But I think some new seats might be the way to go.




I'm not going to worry about the back seats right now. They never get used and are usually below a windscreen. Plus if I get to worrying about them later, I can always just add some good-looking covers. Since no one sits on them, that's likely good enough.

This leaves me with only needing two new front seats. I've been going through available sport seats in my $250-per-set target price range, and I've got four that might work. Here they are. I'd appreciate your positive input and any useful alternate suggestions you might have.

Note that these seats, like the car itself is just for putting around in with my sweeties. My sweetie loves speed, but she loves good looks and a good ride more. So I'm not really concerned with seat weight or anything else that dear souls trying hard to race a PT might be concerned with.

1. First up is a set of black seats with diamond hatch stitching. I really like this diamond hatching. Back height and overall dimensions are good. The main downside is that black by itself doesn't match with the color scheme as well.

2. Next up are some cool wide back seats with red trimming. Red along with yellow are both minor trim colors on my PT. I'd prefer yellow for the seat trim, but I couldn't find any yellow trimmed seats that I liked. They were either too narrow, too expensive or too ugly.




3. Number three is my current top pick. These seats are black with "grayish" trim. I say "grayish" because I've seen these same seats listed as having silver, gray and white trim. I've contacted the sellers to get clarification. Hopefully the color is light gray as in the photos. And gray is the primary interior color in my PT.

4. These seats are very similar to #3 above. But they are all black. The downside it the same as #1 above. All black just doesn't seem to work as well with my color scheme. But they have the wide back and other features I want. It's always possible solid black would look great. So I've provided them as a top four option.




Again, your positive feedback is appreciated. I'm not sure right now what I'm going to do. But your input will likely help me when I eventually decide.
