My 45 LWB needs new seat covers. Thinking of SOR covers and foam any suggestions?

Thanks

Mike

I had my seat reupholstered locally and it was only $350.00. I am very pleased with their work. Our 45’s have stable mates that are cousins. I’m building a 56’ GMC currently. I would enjoy more pictures of your 57’ along with the bio.

Bought it off original owner, its a father son project. Still in progress

57 is undergoing mechanical upgrades, just finished this 66 . It’s got FI 350, 700R4, Currie rear, going the same route with the 57.

Nice! My 56’ is going the opposite direction. I’m putting it on a 3/4 4x4 chassis with a Cummins 6BT and an NV4500.

Here’s a later picture after I have gotten it running on the orginal V8 and 4speed. I have added a few factory accessories.

Buy the "coral color" covers ( they will look great with the red beauty) from SOR and buy better foam somewhere else with different densities. I had a local guy do my seats each time. I had the material for a while. I beefed up the drivers seat and its working great.
