    Hey so I was curios to see if anyone has done this or if its even possible. Can the stock seat covers be removed and then thrown in the wash? Ive tried just about everything to clean them except having them shampoo'ed. Any tips?

    i used to work at a body shop and the guy i worked for bought his wife a salvaged mustang with cloth seats. the front seats were stained to shit so he took them out, pressure washed them (added soap to the pressure washer i am pretty sure) and sprayed them down really good. let them dry and they looked brand new.
