    97 Challenger 1800 Need Seat Cover Material

    Anyone know of a supplier for pre-cut seat covers or just the material for this boat? I can find cover kits for skis but nothing for the challenger.

    Have you tried HydroTurf? They make seat covers for alot of different skis. Give them a call, that is unless youre wanting to go OEM.

    He wants seat covers for a jet BOAT, not a jet SKI.

    I am not aware of anyone that makes off-the-shelf replacement covers for the Seadoo boats - or any other actual boats for that matter. Local upholstery shops usually handle that sort of thing. Owners often replace their jetski seat covers themselves, but boats are usually left to the pros.

    HT makes kits for jetboats as well, so I figured they might be able to help him out with the seats.

    They are floor kits, not seat covers. You can order the material from overtons.com or about any good upholestery shop can order marine grade vinyl and redo them for you. Take the seats out for a better price though, because they will bust you open if they have to remove them, its a tough chore.

    Re: 97 Challenger 1800 Need Seat Cover Material

    Thanks for the info guys. I live in CT. It does not look like a tough job. I found this site http://www.garysupholstery.com/index.html and I might order the material and try it myself. I'm a quick learner. And a sucker for abuse
    Any tips on the install?????
    Thanks, Bruce

    I found through a friend a guy who does interiors. He works for an upolstery shop locally. I took the seats and cushions out and he is doing them at the shop on his own time. Price is $500.00 for the whole interior. Pretty reasonable considering the amount of cushions in this thing. Down time will be one week. Thanks for the tips guys.
