Default Any preferred mfg's for replacement seat covers?

Hello all. I am at the point to where i am replacing the front and rear seat foam and covers on my 70 formula. I see pui and legendary? Any others i missed? Any pros or cons to either. Looking for the most quality/durable offered. Also ease of fitment would be nice so my installer does not have to wrestle so much with them. If it matters the car has saddle, standard interior. Thank for any input.

I used PUI seats and foam for my '69 'bird and after a year and a half I am very happy with the results. There were some puckers early on but.. after sitting in the sun they settled down. As far as ease of installation, it was my first attempt at upholstery and a learning experience. Swore I would never do it again but that was a while ago and have softened up on that.

Legendary has a great reputation.

I would recommend the Legendary interior, even though it will cost you more. I used their seat covers and door panels on my old 1970 Formula 400 (deluxe sandlewood) and the interior turned out great.

PUI could not correctly match my dark saddle interior. Legendary could, but still waiting for them to fulfill my order...COVID and all.

Can't go wrong with Legendary covers. They are just a bit pricey.
