My new White car would be perfect inside if not for a couple of tears in the vinyl. I am thinking I should embrace my past-life (was a sheep farmer as a kid and spent a year in New Zealand) and get me some nice Sheepskin seat covers. The right color would look really nice with the Saddle Interior. And they make vinyl much more comfy. I can't beleive I'm asking this. Every time I see 'em on cars I seem to chuckle, but they have some merit!

Anybody got some good ones to recommend?


thanks,

Gag! Recover the front seats, respray the console, detail the interior and you will add $1500 and passey-bys will not point and laugh...

LOL - you know how a sheep smells when it gets wet? --- err wait that didn't come out like it was meant! Anyway, if you get a bit sweaty and sit on them - you soon begin to know what I mean! You don't want to smell that all the way home. Heaven forbid you would forget to roll the windows up and it rains! I never found them to be comfy honestly.

Actually I applaud Brian for having the courage to actually post that. I still think he may have fallen and hit his head but...

I vote for a cheapo pair of fabric seat covers that fit nice until you decide to go ahead and do what Don said.

Apparently, none of your retractors live in Texas, where it has been over 100 degrees for 23 straight days. I would like a real answer to your question as well, just not for my Cougar...

Brian, you could buy a couple of medium sized Prowl T-shirts to put on your seat backs. They have a familiar red GT-E emblazoned on the front.

Great idea. I've got some extras I could bring down next weekend if that's how you want to proceed, Brian.

Goggle it, California Car Cover might have something, seems they expanded their line to include other auto related items.

I wish you well.
