Seats Re-upolstery question?

OK so I have an extra set of JEEP seats with torn up covers foam is good and the seat frames are fine a little rusty but a steel wheel on my grinder fixed them up.

My question is My wife can sew me some seat covers to fix them my question is should I use something like Marine Grade Vinyl similar to boat seats? or just go with cloth or some thing else.

Yes I know I could go pull seats from another car like a Chevy Cavalier I have a good set of seats this is just a small project that helps the wife feel involved with the build. Anyone done this tips to avoid installation of covers advice any information is welcome.

you can buy new covers that replace the torn seats that match the material and colour that yours came with. these are not simple seat covers but replace that the material that was on yours. Ebay is a good place to go looking
