    I have a local upholstery shop willing to reupholstery my seats in my 68 charger. Dark metallic green 430 and Light metallic green 432. But she hasn't been able to fine a source for the material yet.
    Does anyone have a source?
    I know Legendary has the complete covers but she is willing to reupholster the buckets for $250 each.

    SMS auto fabrics will probably be able to get it. They are high IMO, but the fabrics are spot on.

      I have a full set of green set covers from a 74 Charger SE that were removed this year. While the body shop was replacing a rear quarter, they set the plastic interior quarter panel on fire. Minor, but melted the panel and a spot on the lower rear seat at the right floor. They replaced the panel and rear seat, and I replaced the front seats, as they were pulling apart at the seams.
      There may be enough green material for your use (cheap), and I can check if you think the colors (Jade Green) would match....

      Sorry I just notice you comment now.
      I did purchase the SMS material and had the local shop do it. Looks good but the creases/folds don't look right compared to the originals seats. She said it's new, may take time to settle(?). I don't have a clue.
