I realize Ive been looking for Evita for a year. She probably has five years left, maybe more. Its time to put nice seats in her so that my daughter smiles every time she gets in - especially since Ill have some Greek seat covers to sell afterwards.

The Greek seat covers will, and so will my spare seat bottoms in 3960

P80 seats are the same from 1994-2000 I believe

Has anyone found a source for replacement cloth seat covers, or the material? Replacement upholstery is mostly NLA from Volvo and unfortunately the p80 cloth seat covers don't seem to have been nearly as durable as the cloth seats in Volvos of yore.

I've had my driver's seat rebuilt several times and the passenger seat twice. I've kept the old seat covers in a large tote box and last time was able to have a seat bottom pieced together out of two old seat bottoms and it still looks okay after a few years.

I’m crossing the bridge if not wanting to look at tatty seats for a year vs the size of the party they throw when I croak.

With the right attitude , old age is fun.
