Re: Tudor seats

I appreciate the feedback, I wondered about LB, but search as I did, could not find just the covers, I guess I needed to call and ask. I've heard nothing but good about Elizabeth also. Many thanks!

Tudor seats

Does any company sell just the seat covers for my Tudor? It seems like the only way I can get the correct ones, is to buy a complete kit. :confused:

Re: Treasure found in my Tudor!

I guess it all depends on its value. If it's just an old silver quarter, I think I'll mount it in the car as a memory. On the other hand, if it's really worth a lot, I'm sure my wife will have some...
