Seat Covers
« on: May 23, 2019, 12:35:45 pm »
I'm looking at custom-fit, made-to-order seat covers for the Fiesta, because my ass wears out seats way too fast. Also, I wear a dirty monkey suit.

Does anyone have experience with fancy seat covers? I'm looking at these for $263:

Well, that's the company I ordered the saddle blanket covers from for the wagon. They were decent quality and fit well enough, and the company was helpful.

That's about all I can say.
We should get into the sympathy business.  There is a killing to be made.

Better than any of the garbage you'll get out of universal seat covers from Walmart or whatever.  A little pricey, sure, but if they fit right, they'd be worth it, IMO, and should last.  And vinyl is much easier to clean/keep clean.

Thank you for your review. Please rate five stars.

I was thinking black sides, and blue or grey centers.

That shit isn't even worth the box it comes in, unless you have a real basic truck bench seat.

Yeah. They're okay for short term or in a pinch if you really need them, but otherwise useless.

I have a fleece Reds blanket wrapped around the Mazda's drivers seat. It works well enough.

That would drive me bananas.
