    Default 1978 280Z Seat covers opinion wanted

    Hello all,
    I am looking at replacing my original seat covers and cushions. This place has some good options for me.(Welcome to the Interior-innovations!)
    My question is :
    Has anyone gotten the Perforation Option on their seat covers vs. non?
    Is there a difference going from the basket weave to the solid in vinyl?

    My original seats have the 'basket weave' on the sitting area and backs. The new ones I am looking at do not, or I can get the perforations.

    Do the perforations match the comfort of the 'basket weave' regarding breathability?

    Im in Texas. and it gets hot sometimes around here!

    Thanks.

    Don't know, but the perforated panels look very nice!

    I never tested nor do I know someone who has on what would be cooler. Also the amount of perforations will be a big factor. Personally I think the weave would be cooler. The other option is to go cloth, it will breath even better. You can get some flame retardant blue denim and have a retro 70's look. Also they make cooling pad that can be mounted in the seats, that might help.

    I went with cloth inserts and they do breathe better.

    Maybe put a better way...
    Basket Weave Seat covers? or the newer third party version, a little more sporty looking?
