My newly arrived Daytona wagon has dimple plastic seat covers from the, I assume (and we all know what that word stands for), manufacturer. They are slipped inbetween the upholstry and seat back so tight I'm having trouble getting them out. Should I just cut them away, or start yanking? The upholstry in the back seat is just beautiful. It looks new. I suppose they had these covers on the front seats originally. Unfortuneately, they're gone and the seat is coming apart.:( But at least the back seat is really nice.:D

So my question is this;
Actually two questions.

First; how should I go about removing these covers? They are being stubborn and I'm afraid of getting too rough with them. I don't want to damage the back seat. It's in such nice condition.

Second; how should I clean this... I guess it's vynal? Hopefully I'll be able to get the front seat done up in like kind and quality.

This stuff is so nice. It's a rose colour with brown in it. I think the company called this colour Rose Mist? The seating areas are white banded panels. Nice stuff.

Lotsa Larks!
