RE: used seat or new seat covers??

All seats are going to be worn out. You can get new cover from MSA for around 250-300 bucks. They are not hard to install. Do not know about the cushion.

RE: used seat or new seat covers??

If the seat just has a rip or two try bring the car to your local auto upholstery shop for a quote before you spend the big bucks for the new covers. There is a company that makes new foam kits for the 70-78 Z, look it up in the archives under "seat foam". I recently took the seats out of my sons 79 ZX to my upholstery guy here in OKC and for 90.00 he restuffed both seats, totally rebuilt the center ribbed panel in both seats, and made me two new sunvisors by reusing the old frames in each. I figured that for basically the cost of one new visor from MSA and shipping I got everything done.

Good luck....

Charles
