Anybody use decent looking seat covers on their bench seats?

Post 'em up! I'm thinking about getting covers for my dual bench seats. The benches dont look that great, but they are practical so I'm keeping them. I'm thinking about getting some woodland colored covers. I just HATE when they look half assed and tacky know what I mean?

So if anybody has pics of their well-done bench seats, post them up!

Matt

Well I haven't yet but I got a quote from a mom & pop shop that's been in town over 40 years making seat covers. He said $180.00 installed (front, 40/20/40) and he showed me the material, it looks just like the stock seats. He said they stitch all the panels and sides to look just like the original seats, but they are just covers. I am seriously considering it.

I've seen some really nice camo patterns online. I can get the front and rear for like 400$. So I'm thinking about getting that, then having an upholstery shop actually install them w/ stitches or whatever it is they do, so it looks stock, professional, and not all lose and shabby.

I have vinyl seats so I dont want any cloth etc on top of them

Seat Covers

I put some of these: Cabela's TrailGearô Seat Covers on my truck, but I don't have a bench seat. The covers are made well and Cabela's has a really good warranty, I broke some plastic clip took them back and got two new ones without any questions.

wow those are really nice and really cheap! Hell I might just get those. They look good in bench-style. I wonder how much an upholstery shop charges to custom sew those on so they look stock..

I got these in Velor ( graphite) and they fit great! I put the straps behind the plastic on the sides of the seat and they look like factory. I can take some pis and post them if you are interested.

sure take some pics if you dont mind?

I'm debating just buying nice new seats w/ a middle armrest, or getting seat covers. I really dont want to spend the cash on new seats, and you cant go wrong with mossey oak... so I'm having trouble deciding. I'd rather put new-seat-money into something else more worthwhile.

While I was all for getting these covers and having an upholstery shop sew them on so they look clean and stock, he said that the fabric seat covers is made out of will snag and end up looking like **** after not too long.

Is that true w/ the ones posted?

The upholstery guy said neoprene will tear and all that.. but the covers I'm looking at are the cabelas trail gear, which is 600-denier polyester
