You can save yourself a lot of time by just ordering seatcovers. The Paddock or Impala Bob's are good places to start looking.

Any vinyl that will hold up at all cannot be sewn in a standard sewing machine. I've tried. You could probably save yourself some money if you ordered and cut up the vinyl, just taking it into the shop to be sewn, then install it on the seat yourself. That's what I did. Good luck.
