The seat covers were a group buy here..

I buy from ebay

When i covered my Miata for the shows I found that Di Noc was the thickest..It might last for 20 years..The Chinese Vinyl was the thinest but it would still last for a few years..

I think I might paint all the chrome on the car next, including the wheels..

Very nice car BTW.. how would the wheels look painted the body color?.. have you posted any threads on your Leaf hypermiling techniques?.. very interesting picture here:

There are actually 2 dogs in the car...If I could get the Leaf body color in a rattle can, I would do that in a second ...

By the way, thats a half can of Rustoleum high performanse enamel and one coat of clear ..
