I dont know who's kit is best but I can say that you want PUI products, their are others out there, but my opinion having just gone threw this is PUI is the best, I would not buy any other.

There is only 2 seat cover manufacturers (that I know of) Prestige and PUI.They both fit well and look good,but PUI 70 seat covers have that "puffy" center that looks more original,while Prestige is flat.Prestige is cheaper in price,by about $50 for the complete front seats/backseats.PUI door panels are very,very good IMO.Don't be confused by different vendors,as they all sell PUI pretty much(I haven't seen Prestige around in about 5 years,and that was thru Ted Williams).I see so many posts on "How good are the kits at NPD or Ground Up?" They're all the same.

One thing to consider: If you're ordering a complete kit, I'd advise ASSEMBLED door panels. I have the do it yourself version, quite a PITA, plus I think I may have made a few marks that are permanent. Live & learn.

My advice is check them out before you buy. Our '69 seat skins are not rolled between the pleat lines and the back seat basket weave strip is about an inch narrower than the originals. These were supposed to be PUI and we bought them about 4 years ago. The quality and fit were excellent but the finish was not exact. Today could be a totally different story as people are starting to insist of things being absolutely correct, as they should be. If your old skins have minor problems, many times a good upholstery man can do excellent repairs that you won't even see.
