Having beat up, rotten old seats in a ‘Vette should probably be a crime because installing new upholstery is one of the easiest, and most cost effective ways to upgrade the aesthetic condition of your Corvette.
If you’ve been thinking about making the plunge and upgrading your seat covers, Mid America Motorworks (MAM) are well known Corvette gurus with tons of seat cover experience. Not only do they have OEM style seat replacements for all years of Corvettes, but they also have an installation service that reduces the time and energy needed to get your seats in back to new condition.
It’s easy to do with MAM. Just box ’em up–around $100 –and ship them over and they’ll install new covers and foam and ship ’em back better than new. We spoke with MAM’s very helpful Josh Yager – no relation to the straw hat wearin’ guru – and he took us through the steps of how to let them handle the whole process. They can also troubleshoot air bladders and in-op power seats as well.
With 63 years of Corvette thrones to choose from, lets use late-era C4 covers as an example of the quality and fit MAM seat cover offers.
The company states, “Our custom handmade C4 1994-1996 OE Style Leather Standard Seat Covers instantly update your Corvette. Our seat covers start from a single cowhide for consistent texture and quality. Then they’re CNC computer cut from the same pattern and panel configurations as the originals, ensuring an exact fit.
Each seat cover is expertly hand-stitched in Effingham, Illinois by a single craftsman, using sunguard UVR bonded B-92 polyester thread to withstand extended exposure to the sun’s rays. Each set of custom handcrafted covers takes 7-10 hours from start to finish, with the resulting seat covers delivering an instant upgrade to your interior.” In the case of these C4 covers, the meticulous quality is backed up by:
- Sunguard UVR Bonded B-92 Polyester Thread
- Pre-mounted on Foam and Ready to Install
- Original Style Milli Lock Attaching Fabrics
- Hand-stitched and Fabricated in Effingham, Illinois
- Automotive A-Grade Materials
- General Motors Licensed Product
Also, they can customize your seat covers with thread color choice, two-tone designs and embroidery.
