Unfortunately, assuming you mean buckets and not the Strato Bench, they are unique. The pattern is unique plus the pleats are done with heat. You can get a shop to custom stitch something that 99% of people would not recognize is not identical though. It looks original but the contour of the pleats is the difference.

Ouch, this is a wake up call for me. All my upholstery is still sitting in a spare room since 2014! No point putting it in the car as it still sits outside due to lack of storage space.

Ok, I was wondering about your interior as I looked through that link. I didn't recall ever seeing it finished. Those covers you had made sure looked authentic. Are you willing to say what that cost to have them made?

The complete job was $2500.00.  Seemed like alot back then, surely be twice that nowadays.
