Mach 1 Seats - Black with Grey stripe color match
#1
I received my new seat upholstery from DI Saturday. The material looks nice and the comfortweave looked fine to me too. When I put the new seat backs next to my original bucket the greys are not even close. My grey has a gold/brown shade to it compared to the grey on the new upholstery.

Anyone else notice the difference? What did you end up doing?


Thanks!

One thing their to remember is that your old seats are 40 years old. They will inevitably show some of their age in the vinyl. I did research the seat manufacturers and materials quite extensively for my concourse build. I ended up buying orginal comfortweave and gray vinyl from SMS Interiors and had the seats sewn up by TMI. Mind you this by far is not the budget minded route. I have noticed that DI seats appear to be more suited for more regular if not daily use as their vinyl is thicker than the TMI vinyl samples. The OE vinyl I purchased was about as thick as DI. One thing I have noticed is that the comfortweave and color of gray is the biggest difference across all of the repop manufacterers. Here is my post on the my seat story.

TMI is way too silvery, not even close to gray. Distinctive makes a better match, altho not exact.
