    For more than a couple of years now I've had these pair of Corbeau A4 seats in Black Betty. I also got from an EBay seller neoprene (skin suit material) seat covers. Through not so thorough use these things are tearing at the seams mostly on account of the profile of these A4 seats. Of course the passenger seat is less so torn out.I've searched for seat covers on the web, but most are application specific. Does anyone know of a universal fit seat cover company that won't break the bank?

    Since our anniversary was yesterday the better half and I may drive up to Salem to have a look at what Sears has to offer.

    Back in the day, the hot rodders would take their cars to Tijuana for fancy tuck-and-roll at bargain prices. I'd look around. Maybe the local upholstery shop can help you, or look on Craig's List for an upholsterer working out of their garage.

    I'm hip Tim, when I was stationed at Camp Pendleton back in the '70's liberty was restricted from crossing the border but we went there anyway. I was surprised to find all of those upholstery shops in TJ.

    I'm holding out for my next trip to Salem (Sears) unless I find something on Craigslst or Ebay.

    Ya go local. Universal seat covers IME are all crap. Bad fitment and they dont last. I like Wet Okole. But they're not cheap.

    Go local if you can. It is better to meet who does your upholstery in person. Hard sometime to deal with the seller once they get your money, if a problem occurs, on a internet or phone sale.

    Since having to go on welfare a couple of years back I've been forced to go grocery shopping at Canned Foods Grocery outlet amongst others. Saturday I was suprised to find these in the automotive aisle end. While their material is lightweight and the stretchers don't connect the elasticity of the material holds the seats snugly, and for $9.99 each I can't complain, even if they do tear I can afford to get another set.
    I do feel as though I'm on 'Hatari' or something now...
