My front driver seat has a few rips and is quite worn. Would you guys know of a decent fitting leather seat cover, or would you just recommend I find an interior shop to fix them up. My back seats and passenger seat are like new but that isn't the case for the drivers seat.

I'd try to find a used one. There's plenty of them out there Try "BUICKNUTT", he's out in CA someplace. He has about 10 RMW he's parting out.

It's surprisingly not crazy expensive to ship them. I've shipped them in a washer or dryer box via greyhound.

I go to the salvage yard and cut leather panels out, especially from rear seats with little-to-no wear, and then have my interior guy use the panels for repairs on my front seats.   Cheap fix and looks totally original.

I had a passenger seat shipped to me from Michigan to FL and it was about $50. It was folded as flat as it could and put in a big cardboard box.

Second and third row wagon seats are vinyl, front seats for the most part are leather.

Tom are you sure? I'd cut panels out of my stock flat wagon 2nd row when I did my Sedan seat conversion, and I'm 99% sure that was leather. The 3rd row is vinyl, but the middle row, in both my Roadmaster and my 92 Custom Cruiser, was leather.

Mike

I don't have a RMW to check anymore, and I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure it's vinyl, and a good grade of vinyl. You can definitely tell the difference between the leather in the front seats and the vinyl in the 2nd seat. The front seat would have a lot of grain and texture where as the back seat is perfectly smooth. It probably looks ok. I cut out a limited piece of front seat leather for that same purpose. Sedan rear seats, I think are leather.
