: Seat covers for 74 Coupe and other interior questions

10-01-04, 01:53 AM
I have a 74 CDV that needs a new front seat cover because of damage on the driver's side. I was wondering if anybody knows if the universal full size pickup truck seat covers would work until I can afford to have it reupholstered right. The price was right.

Also since the car is sitting at my sister's house, how wide are the seats? I found a seat cover on jcwhitney's website http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/ProductDisplay/s-10101/makeId-1000105/p-5412/c-10101/modelId-1001105
It fits up to a 60 inch wide seat. I figure the seat would be a little too wide for this cover.

Also, what works best for fixing a cracked arm rest? The interior is in pretty good shape for being 30 years old, but the driver's arm rest needs a little work. It is the only real spot where there is cracking. I mean the dash is perfect and the rear seats and rear area are pretty good. But that arm rest looks bad. What products are out there to fix it?
