ok my cars 16 years old, its been a daily driver ever sence it rolled off the lot in 87. the guts are showing just that...now im not talking rips,tares or burns.

you can see where the piping on the drivers seat has had the cloth rubbed off ...NO GOOD! and what you cant see, no one but me sees it, is that most of the seams are showing some sings of pulling apart or you can tell because you can kinda see where the thread is.
I want to make these seats as good as new! is there any place that has new skins or a place i can get a new set from OR ship mine off to be redone in factory form...please, i love this oll regal and hope to have it "forever". thanks

nothing you can do about the material unless you want to reupholster it...if you return the upholstery to stock you will basically be using the old seat covers as templates for the new..very simple and almost anyone in my opinion can do it...
steaming the seats will bring the foam back to the original shape and make it look better than what it probably does now..if you have say a crushed velvet interior i wouldnt recommend steaming
just check a small unseen area to see if it damages it at all before doing the whole seat
well didnt see that pic when i posted first time...just make sure you check a small area with the steam..

"steaming the seats"

hows this done?
well you will need a steamer and its basically done exactly how it sounds..depending on what type of material you have you may need to take the fabric off so your only steaming the foam...you just wipe the steamer along it and the foam returns to its OG shape
