Here's a picture of the '75 Junkyard Monaco that I've been monitoring:
Note that it not only has the '74-style defroster, but the split-pattern seat. I'm going to try to copy this pattern, with a slight variation in both material and design so that it matches these seats:
I want to use the "down the center vinyl" pattern and hope that the vinyl front armrests serve as a decent tie-in. The only thing that I still want to do is source a non-power 50/50 split seat to take the tracks from so that I don't have to use the clunky motor setup.
I am not a huge fan of the plain taxi-style seats so when I had my seats recovered last year I had a subtle pattern stitched in to break up the 5 feet of vinyl, I am happy with the results. The seats don't look too 'fancy' but aren't too boring either. I still have to dye the headrests and cut the holes in the seat back to install the headrest guides.
