Red/Black Simulated Leather Seat-covers.

From Advance Auto Parts, Elegant brand, Razor #329219S. Very few of these slip-on covers fit very well....these do. In fact, most people would think these things are a custom fit. Bought them off-the-shelf for $19 ea. The only give-away....one strap visible when you open the door. This could be routed behind the plastic trim with a little work.

I've been trying to add a little color to my white ZX5, with silver/black interior. These covers did it.

Why not route the strap under the seat?

They look really good for just being seat covers. If you hide that strap, it woulda fooled me.

They said I could bring them back if they didn't fit....... Out of the box there were creases in the vinyl, which came out after about three days in the summer heat. I didn't want to hurt anything, so I installed that strap as shown. Getting it under the plastic will require loosening that trim piece....which I didn't want to do till I was sure I'd keep them.

So....another little project.

The store only had a few covers for lo-back buckets (with the separate head-rest covers). These red ones were the only I saw. I went on the Advance web-site, but couldn't find them at all. They have hundreds of different covers...but few with separate head-rest covers.

Perhaps you could find them at the mfg. site (Elegant).

Oh....didn't see any for the rear. I've got my whole rear seat covered with a heavy black blanket. I carry stuff back there.

That's actually not bad at all. Looks good man. And yeah, looks like you won't need to take them back so work on getting that strap hidden

Follow-up....I managed to route the visible strap behind the plastic seat trim without taking anything loose. Looked a lot worse than it turned out to be. You just need a flash-light to see under the seat. I'm happy now...

In case anybody is wondering....there are six straps for the edges of the lower seat cover section, and one large piece that pulls through the gap between the upper and lower seat. This is attached with two more straps. And the very back section that covers the entire rear of the seat-back cushion, has two more straps.

When you install these covers, you can vary tension by stretching the straps, adding some extenders (like very small bungee cords), or tying knots in the straps (to shorten them). The straps come with little metal hooks, and there are a number of places under the seats to attach them. How well these things fit depends on how careful you are.....but they are a very good fit out of the box. The under-side of these covers has a material that doesn't slip around on the stock leather seats that are now covered up. Check out the price of a single piece of Ford leather seat covers......you'll get a set of after-market covers immediately.
