SVT seat insert fabric replacement?

has anyone ever successfully located the matching fabric for the inserts of the SVT seats to re-upholster worn seats?

I seem to have located the material that matches the blue....



http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Focus-R..._qi=RTM1303753

if it's not the same, it's VERY close....

the same seller has red too, but it's not the same....if you look at the svt seats the pattern seems to have two layers in the weave, where the top layer is red and the bottom/inbetween layer is black; not also red as with this link:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Focus-R..._qi=RTM1303752



the blue I linked seems to have black in it, unless my eyes are playing tricks on me...

I've also found these respective fabrics in red and blue, but also not with the black in them....



http://www.ebay.com/itm/RED-JERSEY-P...item2ec3de28ac



http://www.ebay.com/itm/BLUE-JERSEY-...item2ec3de2c16

I ask this because I have a situation where I've got a complete set of seats, but the driver seat is worn very badly where the rest of the set are near mint. would really like to replace the fabric on the driver seat so all are nice and matching.....

Curious as well. Got a pair of SVT seats for almost nothing but they are blue fabric and I want to have them redone in red. Also the left leather covered bolster has a 1" tear in it.

I've thought about this before and if I were going to this I personally would use the "alcatara" or however it's spelled material that comes in the WRX's & STI's. I have a Sonic Blue SVTF obviously with the blue inserts. If/when I decide to do this, I will use the the "alcatara" material to do all the seats and headliner. I personally think that would look really good.

That ebay material isnt the same material as the SVT seats. If you get up close (or get a magnifying glass), you will see the SVT material has a little bit of yellow, white and black in there. The material on ebay is a solid blue.

Last time i called ford to ask about it, they tried to sell me some at $170 per yard. I went to a local fabric shop, and found something that was close enough for $2 per yard.

I think that even if you found one to match, the other seats would be faded by now and wouldn't match brand new material anyway.

If it were me, I'd replace all the insert materials with the right color, but leave my options open on type of material.

I've actually got a line on the original fabric for $75 per running yard (60" wide by 36" for $75)....just awaiting a picture of the actual material to verify it's correct.

I forgot to get back with my source. I've been way too busy with trying to get my molds and car done by SiF '13, and have too many motorcycle projects underway. I'll try to get to it if I find a few mins to snap some pics of the fabric up close to email for verification.
