I recently purchased a pair of "1976-1984" seat covers for my '80. I won't say where I bought them as I haven't contacted the vendor yet...

Anyway, I received something a bit different than what's currently in the car. My car appears to have a 1 piece back rest - as in the middle cushion isn't a separate part of the cover. This is what I received:



I've never taken one of these seats apart before to know what's actually under the cover. Will this seat back work with an "early" style seat? Or should I contact the vendor and ask them to swap them out for a different style? If they'll work, I'd rather just install them than wait another month (or more) for another set.

I can't have my daily driver down for more than a couple days so I'd rather not pull the old covers until I'm positive the new ones will work.

I was following the install guide on only944.com (not where I bought these), but he only shows install for 85.5+ 944 seats and I'm not sure how different they are.

Tough to clearly see on the photo, but this looks like sport seat/Turbo seat covers. The side bolster seems larger than they would be on a standard seat.

The side of the bolster is 5". The seats in to car also have 5" bolsters. I believe sport seats are 7". I do have a spare seat from my 924S. Maybe I'll dissect it to see what's in there. I have a feeling I can make these work it I want to be positive before I take my daily driver out of commission to recover the seats.
