    Good Morning,

    I am hoping that someone might have the answer for me. I recently bought a 1980 Camaro and i am in the process of redoing the interior. I am looking at upholstery to order from different sites and they all show a pic of the front of the upholstery but none of the back and from the you tube videos i have watch, most of the front bucket seats use a plastic back cover to hide the back of the upholstery. My problem is, i don't have a plastic back cover. My old upholstery has a zipper in it and it zips from top to bottom. I am afraid if i order a set of upholstery for my Camaro that it will be the wrong kind and most sites only give you one option for upholstery. Anyone know if the zippered upholstery was optional or standard in the 1980 Camaro's?

    79-81 had zippered backs, If I remember correctly.

    Deluxe (custom) with the squared-off top or standard seats with the round top?
    You may want to replace the foam also and you need to match the upholstery to the foam style.
