I am going to replace my seats covers in my 81. I am going to order the ones that are already mounted on foam.  In all the books they ask whether the seats are 2" bolsters or 4" bolsters.  I would like to find out what is original stock and if its 2" would the 4" fit. Also how hard is it to do?

Hey Fred,

I am in the process of changing my seats at this time and the best way to do it

is to change them already mounted on the foam. They just snap in with a couple of

wires in the back. Your 1981 should have the 4'' Bolsters from the factory.

I was unsure of the 2''-4'' thing but I bought a pair of clamshell frames from

salvage yard and it just happened that on has the 2'' and the other has 4''

but since I am changing them does not matter

Good Luck with your install...good info on Corvette America website

Happy Motoring

Andy
