Hi Cecil... What kind of car are you talking about? If there is severe discoloration between the new fabric and old, they both might need to be redone. Mine was like this. The old material got darker with sun exposure.
See if you can get a sample of the new fabric and you can compare to the old. As for pattern, as long as they are somewhat close, they should complement each other well.

The 75's are sharp and a bit unusual around here - I am sure it stands out even more over there. Do you have a source for the seat covers? I cannot find a common place here that stocks them ready to go. Are you going to have a trim shop custom sew them? http://www.smsautofabrics.com/ sells the material, ready to sew up... They seem to have your car, too!

BTW, I bought my car from a guy named Andy!
