I saw these on ebay

OK I would not expect much. But if my seats were trashed, these may tidy things up until I was ready to get them re-upholstered.

I bought seat covers (Coverking) for the wife's Toyota Matrix in the summer that had 'similar in appearance' mesh fabric. The fabric is very cool to sit in in hot weather, durable and easy to clean.

Now I am not saying these seats are made of the same stuff, but I'm just thinking that at $10 per seat, it might be worth someone taking a chance!

True - true... you spend $10 bucks on the occasional beer.... and or cigs......

On the other hand - if I knew I was going to re-upholster the seats in the forseeable future - and didn't have a car show to attend.... I'd probably toss a couple of old bath towels over them and call it good....

It's all about what you want and expect..... for $10... you can't expect much - but that might be enough to get you by..

I bought seat covers from Walmart when I bought my car until I could recover them. I had to bunch up all the extra material and zip tie it in a big knot it the back because our seats are so small.

you can also cover seats with size small T shirts. fold in the arms or sew them in. the back is easy. the seat bottom needs a cut.

Fake fur and sheepskin is practically concourse for the Spit.

If I were you I'd skip the seat covers and just reupholster the seats. It only takes an hour or two per seat. If your foams are good it won't even take you that long.

Here's the seat covers I bought. They're leather effect vinyl but they're really good quality and fit well. You can't complain for the price.

I dunno if they sell these on Ebay USA or not.

They do, and I have put them on several cars. Two spitfires and one mg. Their tan/brown, doesn't match anything though, so black is the best bet. And, if you put them on correctly, they'll look pretty good.
