Looks like the picture below, but I went with black embossed top layer and then black bottom layer.

I like those a lot. Very nice.

No better time than now for seat heating pads. Have the pads installed with the pigtails(s) sticking out (pre-planned location). Wiring can come later. Easy and inexpensive.

That shop and the MasterCraft logo look familiar. Can't wait to see the finished product. Mine's been done for 4 years now and it still looks great.

Do you have a recommendation on a specific product? I saw a post of yours from 2018, but the Amazon link is no longer valid.

Thanks for the advice and referral! Hope you don't mind me using the same logo. Why fix what isn't broke?!

Here (or similar) is the same product under a different brand/seller. There are four pads in this kit. I used it and retro-fitted my 93 190; driver - bottom and back, passenger (turned landscape orientation) back and bottom. Works like a champ.

Just figure where you want the wiring to exit the seat location for ease of routing to a switch, then install with that in mind.

Any seat that raises, work the orientation of the pad to where the pig tail will be close to the hinge point for raising the seat.

Easy peasy.

I will say this as a tip... if you (or the installer) run a wire(s) across an area of the seat cover (sometimes near the exit point), use an Exacto knife (or similar) to cut a small trench or slot in the foam for the wire to lay in. Makes it a much nicer fit. Nothing complicated at all. A serrated knife blade works best when cutting foam...makes it a breeze and very nice edges. A straight edge, not so much, particularly on larger cuts. I use an electric bread knife with the serrated edge blade for large (thick) cuts.

For the best install, make sure the installer lays in a thin layer or pad between the foam and the vinyl cover (regardless of the heat pad). Some installers do, some do not.

Regardless of the cuts in the foam, the pads will find a home and settle in nicely once they are installed; especially with the thin padding between them and the seat cover. You'll never know they are there until you turn them on. I wallow all over my passenger's seat with my knees, etc...these pads are tough. No problems at all for me.
