Be Jealous, FX4 style upholstery on my 60/40s!

Been a busy day! Took 5 hours, but got my seats recovered with some new upholstery. I had these specially made by a guy that makes them on Ebay. Let me tell you, his work is top notch!!!!! These covers were made to Ford Spec and thread for thread looked just like what came off! I think they look SICK in the truck, and im the only person with these on a 60/40 seat! Be Jealous:

I still have new material for my console lid I need to put on, but Im thinking i wanna put vinyl there and on my door panels instead. Not bad for $220 shipped and 5 hours of work.

Overall, the job was actually easy. If you take your time and watch how you took the old ones off, then they go on easy, THe hog rings didnt even give me a fit at all! I first placed them in the foam, then placed the material on and attached them where they go. Looks 100000000 times better!

Covers look AWESEOME!!! Fit the truck perfectly.

I am also very jealous of your clean interior.

Those look friggin AWESOME. I am seriously considering some black leather ones for my truck now. I LOVE my stock seats, but the damn light grey insert gets dirty too damn easy.

Were you able to keep your stock seat covers in decent shape, or did you have to trash them to get them off? Great mod man!

Awesome. I might just do this mod then. I'd just hate to trash my stock covers removing them in case I'm somehow not happy with the quality of the covers. I wish they had black leather as a factory option on the 60/40
