seat covers and floor mats...


Hi guys...

After using SnapOn seat covers on my SSS for almost 5 years and making the seats look as s good as new when I sold it, I kept them and have put them on the front seats of the X-Trail...

I don't think they make them to suit the rear seats, and I was wondering if anyone here has come across any "bench" seat style seat covers (I'll even buy them from K-Mart, if need be).

A few dollars spent on seat covers is much more desirable than trying to remove stains from seats and mud from floor carpet later down the track! (already put in the old floor mats from the pulsar, but they're abit too big so might have to find some custom-sized ones (like the custom-sized dash mats you can get)).

Even if I get some old house carpet and cut it to size to cover as much of the original floor carpet as possible would be good.

I just got some seat covers from Ilana in Melbourne.

www.ilanas.com.au

I got a custom made rear that fits spot on.

Floor mats - I got them from the dealer.

Popped into a local car seat cover place and they custom made the front and rears for $150 for the lot - separate covers for the top and bottom of each seat, and also the headrests...

Might've cost maybe half as much @ Supacheap, but the ones I got are Much better looking and nicer fit.

Re: seat covers and floor mats...


Can anyone recommend a seat cover maker in Sydney, preferably around inner city way? I've had mine for almost a year but there are already visible signs of wear mostly where my buttocks go on the drivers seat and some on the passenger side. Any recommendations welcome.

Thanks.

I got ilanas to send them via mail to Sydney.

I ordered sight unseen over the net.

Fit is spot on. Fronts were standard high back with separate head rests. Rear was custom made - they have the pattern.

Hi evilroy,

What sort of material did you go for the front and back and what sort of prices do they charge? I've looked around Kmart/Big W for the front seat covers but couldn;t see any ones with a detachable headrests.

Much appreciated.

Re: seat covers and floor mats...


Ok here's the details of the place I got mine from. I'd take some photos only the X-Trail is currently in for it's free 1000k service.

D.P Car Seat Covers.

707 Forest Rd Bexley 2207

(02) 9553 9014


Their business card says they specialise in vans, 4 wheel drives, and split rears...


Includes separate headrest covers, separate seat base and seat back covers, all custom made to fit. The rear seat covers allow you to put the back seats down flat, but I didn't bother about allowing for the ability to use the armrest in the back seat, but I'm sure they could've done it if I wanted to. I'm not sure what the material is, but it's got a foam backing - I specifically asked for one that isn't going to fall apart after a few years like other ones I have seen (like the supacheap covers do). The material is plain black, but they have hundreds of different types of material, from wool, to cow patterns - you name it, they've got it...


Just something I thought you should be aware of: They had to unbolt the centre rear seatbelt to get the cover on one of the seatbacks. It isn't really an issue unless you'll be washing them regularly emoticon

Total cost was $150 and they even fitted them for us. We tried Supacheap but there were so many to choose from, where didn't know where to start (and after seeing how many packets had been opened, there's a good chance many others thought the same as us, and there'd probably now be the wrong covers in the packets anyway). When they fit them, they cut the holes with scissors where the seatbelt and headrest mounts go through the seatback covers... I'm not sure if they'd do that if they had to deliver them to you as they might not know exactly where the holes need to go without having the car there as a reference.

I paid considerably more.

Fronts are sheepskin - Matilda's from the catalog. These are thick and have front/rear/side pockets built in. Cost $230 for the pair.

Rear is custom made fake sheepskin in same colour as the fronts. All holes for seat adjustment/knobs/armrest etc included. The armrest can be zipped in, and a separate cover was included for the arm rest itself. Cost $145.00

Sorry far too late to respond about the seatcovers (mine were from the shop in Tempe on Princess Highway - about $350 custom - grey sheepskin front, almost looks like sheepskin in back).

If you are still after floormats, I use a set (front and back) from Supercheap Auto (next to Rockdale Nissan). They fit perfect and have the highlip so the mud and stuff gets caught - also holds spillied Thai takeaway. I think they costs about $50.

Sorry I took awhle, lost passsword then forgot.
cheers

Peter & Roy (and anyone else who got sheepskin (fake or real) covers)...

Don't you find they're uncomfortable/too hot??? I presumed they would be due to the thickness of them. I had some (probably fake ones) many years ago and found they were too thick and made me sweat...
