Ford Racing Seat Covers

I'm after Ford Racing seat covers (as the title says) and I can't seem to locate any anywhere!

I don't want to ruin the original seats in my XR, but i want something that compliments the car well. Does anyone have any ideas or know where I can get such covers for my seats, or what does everyone else do?

Had same prob a few years back! Ended up getting
sheep skin covers,the trouble is it takes away the support
of the seats.the generic brands are sh1T sports type seats..

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

I was given some custom made seat covers for my car.

They have protected the seats well, but I recently I have been taking them off, and putting them on a lot, that I broke the elastic on one of the front covers . :-(

hello hell there...

the covers you're looking for sound very good... interested to know if they exists...

what ive always done on my cars.. and recently continued the fine tradition on my xr8 ute.. :D is put two oversized dark blue beach towels to good use... hehehe

i know it sounds daggy.. and it looks it as well... but that way i can rip em out and wash them with ease everytime i get mud and stuff on them... if ya get spongy ones.. they seem to adhere to the seats without using ties or elastics... just tuck em in wherever you can...

cheers...

laterzzz

Thanks everyone for replying...

Kelli - With your seat covers, were they custom made Ford badged ones, or were they just plain? I'm thinking of getting proper black durable ones, and then patching on the Ford Racing logo to each of them, but I'm not even sure if this would look any good.

I'm just really amazed that there haven't been any companies making anything that would suit this market, as a lot of people can't afford proper Momo seats or the like, and it's something I'm sure a lot of people would buy, as opposed to cheap ones, or those Snap On seat covers.


Hmmm, okay, i've had my whinge for today - that and the front right headlight decided to go out tonight - argh!

I've got Snap-On ones in my car, not by choice really as they were the only throw over seat covers I could find. They are just a nylon thing and the colour comes out when you wash them. From memory they were around $50 ea, not good value IMO.

I have sheepskin covers (no I'm not a Kiwi... ) that I normally have on the seats, but as I work at a wrecker on the weekend I get covered in grease and crap so I throw on the Snap-On covers just to get home.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

The VIP Pet Foods racing Team (Maclean) have similar covers to the Snap-on throw overs, check the merch stands at your next local V8 Supercar round.
