Hi..

i'm trying to find high quality custom made sheepskin seat covers to suit a 100 series landcruiser

i have tried seaching the web but am unable to find anywhere where i can actually go and see \ touch them and for the sort of money they cost i'm not prepared to simply order over the net, there are a lot of what seem to be quality manufacturers but they all only have web sites...

i live in melbourne and would appreciate any advice on companies where i can see them and any ideas on cost ??

thanks

steve

sorry i forgot to mention that they would be going on leather seats and am concerned about the covers marking the leather long term ..

Hi Steve,

There is a fantastic small company in Burwood, Highway - Ferntree Gully [opposite the pub] that make and fit outstanding sheepskin seatcovers.
In my previous life I drove a Commodore and had them made and fitted. They were the best I have seen. Not cheap but beatifully made.

If interested, I will email you the address as I don't know if FTG is too far for you.

GTee..

thanks for the reply, i am certainly interested and FTG is not a problem, i was hoping to get a reply from someone who had had actual experience with both the covers and the company

the cost is not the major issue, it's more about finding a quality product

sounds like this could be just the thing.

i understand the previous life thing too... afterall "life begins with mud"... lol

you can email me at mudman2@bigpond.net.au

many thanks

steve

jemima puddle duck (love the nick) :-))

hi and thanks for the reply, yes i generally do the same, but in this case i was hoping to find someone with personal experience who could recommend someone as good quality one's aren't cheap and poor fit \ quality one's can cause more damage than what they cost..

thanks

Hi Mudman2
You could try "Alana" I think it is they have a show room etc in Hoddle st Abbotsford
they would probably have some stock, they are also sold in lots of auto shops.

I have a set of there "front bucket seats" medium quality of the rack
used ever day as a chippy & offroad , whilst there not the ducks guts in covers
I cant see the value in paying top $ as the are a protector & will all get dusty etc.

I have just got in from the high country so I will try & find the Address etc & reply tomorrow.

Cheers

Bloke in Beach St Frankston.

He wanted $600 for a pair for the front of the GQ, I think he got the message when I fell over laughin at him when he said $900 for the rear seats...

Hi Steve,

the place in FTG is Customade Sheepskin Products, 819 Burwood Hwy FTG, showroom phone 9758 1440, factory phone 9758 1191.

Owner is Graham Potter.

I have had 3 sets of front seat skins made, GQ, GU & Magna and he does a bloody good job. But don't expect good covers to be cheap. You want quality, you pay for quality.

Happy 4 wheeling.

hi John..

thanks for the response, so far that makes 2 votes of confidence for the FTG business, sounds like it might just be what i'm looking for.

as for the cost.. i'm a firm believer that you only get what you pay for and if it's cheap there's a reason for it.. my first priority is for quality not cost ..

many thanks

steve
