Legendary is the only choice for correct appearing, high quality covers. The PUI covers I've seen do not even resemble the original upholstery...no dimension, no depth...no pleats you can feel....it looks like the pattern was drawn on. I've seen many GTO's for sale that have been restored, and the first thing I think when I see the seat covers is "I'd have to get those redone....."

PUI is supposed to be coming out with new tooling. Personally, I'd stick with Legendary....

actually used the PUI 65' covers with the arrow head and diagonal pleating as price was a concern and i got them on sale. I am assuming they had the new dies because mine are sharp and crisp and with a good amount of dimension on the rolls stretched them myself and all were a good fit to original pads and have had no issues with seams separating yet....was worried because i had heard the legendary was heads above, all in all happy with the PUI though

I bought the legendary. Don't have them installed yet but look to be good quality. Of course I got the legendary due to information found on this site.
