Seat "skins" for `92 Civic VX?!

I have looked high, wide and far with no success at all in finding replacement "skins" for my VX seats.

They're getting to the point where I can't stand them anymore. Lots of VX guys here...what have you done with yours?

There has to be a source for replacements.......right?

Del Sol seats....just have to swap the rails and they bolt right in. IMHO they are way more comfy than the Civic seats.

If you don't want to swap seats, then a $10 seat cover from an auto parts store does the trick as well.

Stealership will rape your wallet for an OEM seat skin.

You might be able to find someone selling seat covers or old OEM civic seats for cheap. I know I sent a mint set that came in my hatch for about $30 for the pair, and actually had a hard time getting rid of them. But if you can find them, I would recommend getting some del sol seats since they are a lot more comfortable, and actually feel good on my back unlike the terribly uncomfortable and unsupportive civic seats. They can be pricey though. They generally go from $75-$300 for a pair.

For the visual learners out there...

From these civic seats:


To these comfy del sol seats:


The most worthwhile "mod" I've ever done to a Honda!

I see alot of people putting Integra GSR Leather seats in their Civic hatches now. I'm going to check some junkyards to see how much they run.

Just be forewarned that the Integra Leather seats weigh in at 44lbs. each!

Del Sol seats weigh in between 16 and 20lbs each depending on year. If you really want leather seats, they do make a leather seat skin for the Del Sol seats, but it's a rare (read: expensive) commodity.

whoa, didn't know they weighed that much. I might have to reconsider now because that can definitely affect gas mileage. All of the hatches I've seen them in were all swapped with B16s, B18s, and B20s so you know they weren't into FE.

I had a leather interior'd Integra once, and I really didn't like it. They are supportive seats, but once you add the smooth-leather, you just slide around in them. Integra seats are also a good option though, since they're easy to find, and sometimes cheap. WIth either the del sol or Integra seats all you need to do is bolt your seat rails onto them, and they bolt right in.

94-01 for sure. I've seen a lot of people with the 90-93 integra seats in civics too, but I've never seen them first-hand, so I don't know if they need to be modified to fit.

I'm talking about 94-01 DC2 Integras. Even the rear seats go right in.
