    You got one of the good ones.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

      After you spray Pledge on seat you buff with rag to dry seat. I also spray transfer board to transfer from seat back to chair. All my transfers are gravity transfers. We have 6 way seats all to save shoulders. I am T-10 para for for 48 years, my wife post polio since 1948. We really have to be careful re shoulders, we have hospital beds that lower to 18" for easy transfer and raise for gravity transfer from bed to chair. Use every fix you can to save your shoulders.

Come to think of it years ago I was at the Orange county flea Saturday flea market and ordered cloth seat covers for my old van. They said they had the patterns for all the seats and I could pick up the covers the following week, which I did. I wonder if I could go to So Cal and get it done somewhere.
        When you say "on the cheap" I think substandard. If you saw this work, you'd like it. The price is low because this guy has low overhead (no rent). He subs his work to brick and mortar shops who double the price.

            I would not be surprised if there are more there than anywhere near here.

              I did not mean substandard work. I don't like anything but quality, my issue is paying for it. I trusted the vinyl installer when he said I'd like these when he compared them to the discontinued ones on the Rollx seats. $250.00 wasted. It sounds like in Santa Ana I could have gotten leather. The sad part is that these were probably made in So Cal. as I had to wait for them to be made, uppers and lowers is all they would sell even though I did not use the uppers.

                Seat cover would be thoughts too. They make some really good ones and if installed correctly, last a long time. Also, no freak out moments if it gets damaged.

                  Doesn't the Pledge make your clothes dirty? My wife drives my van too. I'm not sure she would want to sit on the Pledge. Doesn't it rub off onto your clothes?
                  Rub in with one rag, polish wipe off with another rag. Pledge works great on many rubber, smooth leather, and plastic things. Has (or at least used to) bee's wax in it = preserves things. Just keep it's spray away from glass. Spray on rag to do top of dash panel.
