Cool 66 PUI seat cover seams don't line up

Just finished one bucket seat on a 66 with PUI covers.

The main seams on the right and left line up.

But the stitching in the inside where the extra padding is stitched in is off about 3/8". Anyone else have this problem.

Think I should take a photo and send it in to PUI? Or is this common?

Re: 66 PUI seat cover seams don't line up

I have not ordered my seat covers yet but I'd call PUI or their rep where you purchased the covers... Their website is here http://www.pui.cc/

Please post your results. I'll be watching this thread since this is a purchase just up the road for me too...

Re: 66 PUI seat cover seams don't line up

In the process of doing the interior this winter, FWIW here goes.

1. PUI window felts were wrong, reorder from Re Pops, the PUI clips were in the wrong place.

2. sent sun visors from PUI back, poor stitching around the ends. Had www.sunviors.com redo my old ones.

3. front door panels had the holes for the window crank and door handle about 1/8 in to low, as a result a fight to get the washer lined up for the door and window cranks and the clips in the holes on the door.

4. rear panels came damaged at the lower front ends. sent back, reorder, they also came damage in the same spot, so I fix them with glue and a thin piece of aluminum. Then on one panel the vinyl material was glue back to far, about 1/2", so it wouldn't come around the front of the pinch weld.

5. Stitching on the seams on the front buckets don't line up. Once you go though the process of getting those pull tabs hog ringed down and they line up it is obvious that a drunk sewed the inside padding on.

If this outfit is one of the best, I'd hate to see some of the poor ones.

And I do intend to write to PUI and send some photo's
