    I just hope they look okay installed and last for more then a few months! These great deals are not what they seem after you purchase!

    Bone stock for now but parts on their way!

    I like what you did with the backside of rear seats. It looks more finished that way.

    The pics look really good. Fitment looks good in the pics. I think these will stretch out over time and especially when it gets warmer out. I got my shipping info this AM so hopefully its quick shipping like you had!

    Ya the covers don’t completely contour so you have kind of a gap between the cover and seat. You can’t see it in the pics but the lumbar portion is just stretched across so when people sit in it, it will stretch. Time will tell how it holds up.

    I'm content with mine for the price and if they get damaged or worn I'll just get some more or some Clazzio but they seem comparable to Clazzio from what I remember when I had some in my FJ except they were leather inserts with vinyl outter.

    Nice job on the backing for the rears.

    So i finished the install pretty happy with how it turn out! Couple of mistakes i put the driver side seat bottom on the passenger didn't see it until i was half way done with the driver seat! I had one strap rip off i just pulled way to hard my fault. The only thing i don't like is the center console cover just doesn't fit very well!

    Maybe someone will find this helpful, but I used a steamer to tighten up my seat covers and the results are pretty significant for just a few more minutes of work. Heres some before and afters.

    Before steaming it

    same cover after

    and another before

    and after

    I just applied some steam for a minute or two, working it around the major creases and then just smoothed and massaged it out with my hands as well. Im doing heated seat installs at the same time so no pics of the complete interior yet

    That looks incredible!
    Did you use a clothing steamer? Like the kind my wife uses on her blouses and sweaters?

    Thanks, I was very suprised at how much it helped! Yes any kind of steamer would work. This is specifically the one I use out in the garage for detailing. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XHXFHWG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I really want to do this but the concern for me is the side airbags. I know it was mentioned but now the airbags not only have to go through the cloth seat covers they originally have on now they have to go through this synthetic leather as well. That concerns me. Idk if it matters but something I need to figure out.

    EDIT: I called clazzio and asked about this and they say they have the exploding stitching on theirs which rips away and makes the airbag completely functional. If these covers have the same they would work. SO that would be my question to them and at that price point I would doubt they would have it
