Fabric Ideas

So, the people that did my headliner, Asylum Custom interiors, are gonna make me custom seats as well. Because I wanna keep with the clean look, and want something easy to clean, I'm leaning towards all black seats with orange stitching.

Here is where I am looking for ideas.

What kinda fabrics (nothing rediculously expensive, plz) do you guys recommend for this? The seats are gonna hopefully be bolstered and made to be more like racing seats if all goes well. No leather.

But I'm open for suggestions.

Neoprene like the Jeep seat covers. The material is pretty easy to clean and durable.

Hmm. thats a possibility. I wanted to do a crushed velevet like center panel, like the race car seats I had, but its too pricey. Haha

I've got a velour (similar to suede or velvet) fabric for my seat covers and door panels. it's super soft, and looks really nice. And it doesn't heat up or get cold so no matter the weather you don't end up sitting in uncomfortable seats. But it gets dirty very easy, but my experiance could be because I have cheap seat covers, the material I used for my door panels seems to hold it's own well.

What is Velour?

it was one of the more expensive fabrics at the fabric store when I bought the stuff for my door panels...so no promises, but I love it and would recommend at least looking into it.

I'd say suede like your headliner.
That really looked nice. I loved the fact that they were able to your parking brake handle also.
