OEM Leather Seat Covers!
Quick question about the 2001 Charcoal Leather Seat Covers!
Why are they so hard to come by and used ones aren't being taken off the seat frame when shipped?
I have a small area of wear damage and a small hole starting on the driver outside edge of the seat and I can't locate these seat covers anywhere! I am dropping off my car Monday to get the damaged area professionally repaired (new bolster area stitched in). Shop is charging me $85.00, so I quess it's not too upsetting, it's alot cheaper then seats!
I seen some complete seat sets (both front and rear) on Ebay but these are complete seats, Shipping these would be real expensive! I can't believe oem seat covers aren't available (I didn't even see any on fords parts web site)!
I seen some ebayers say they only sell the complete set because of fade (I can understand that). But for them not to pull the leather cover off the seat is ridiculous!
I'm by no means a interior specialist but I have redone seats with used oem coversin the past.
1st time ever....... I pulled covers off my 87 Fiero GT (no snickers please, I have owned it over 10 years, and it's a blast to drive). Anyway.....It was easy removing the stock cloth covers from the fiero and without any damage (you need to use some care when removing the hog-rings or do like me and use metal cutters to cut them). Leather is alot more forgiving then cloth, and the OEM cloth Fiero covers I bought were used (So I know i'm not the only one that can remove the covers)!
Sorry for the vent, I just can't believe you can't buy just leather covers unless you order new aftermarkets (ie...Katskinz(sp?))!
Have a good one!
