Anybody know the manufacturer for these seats? They were in my baja when I bought it. All I know is they have a metal frame. I'm going to take them down to mexico, and get them re-cusioned, and re-covered.

they look like
Beard or
PRP or
raceline or
corbeau's, most of the suspension seats look alike. and i dont know if having them fixed is worth the money. you can get a new pair of corbeaus for $350 in leather so i would shop around first before you spend the coin on getting them re-covered in mexico

Or....you can take them to PRP in Murrietta and they will re-cover them for around $150/pair (I think).

Their number is 800-317-6253

Aside from the color they look just like my Beard Super Seats. Beard sells replacement covers.

I don't know yet I haven't taken them across the boarder to find out. I've been busy with work the past few weeks. I need to talk to my buddie at work he knows a few places down their.

Well that seat was on the passenger side. I don't think the PO drove it at all so the PPO must have scared the $hit out of someone.

Damn that's nasty. Mckenzie's was selling new beard seat covers for around $90. Their site is a little different (can't order online right now - looks like upgrading). Anyway, it not cheap. Might be better deals out there.
