Just a heads up boys and girls: (if permitted) I noted in a recent thread about the above, sheepskin still seem to be pretty popular despite the emergence of canvas ones. Anyway, Aldi have them onsale for $40 for a pair of front only. I got a pair for the Commedycar and a pair for the Prado. One size fits all but a bloody squeeze to get em on. Was a bit taken aback at some prices mentioned but these are great. Black at our local store. Sheepskin on a polyester backing according to the package.

G'day Steve, Hope they serve you well. As an old sheepfarmer I have to mention
that if they are real "sheepskin" they dont need any backing, but maybe you refer to the
part that goes over the back of the seat. cheers...oldbaz

As an old car dealer, I can tell you that if they aren't backed, getting the ground in 'suede' out of the seat material underneath, is almost impossible when you remove them.

hi Baz,

dunno - it just says exactly that: Sheepskin on an acrylic back. I know what you're saying and they don't have the familiar sheepSKIN backing - probably because there's a fair amount of stretch (to fit all) and the acrylic lends itself to this. I'm in the upholstery trade and there's a fair bit of this about: Suede on a backing etc. Anyway, they seem pretty tough (believe me, they have to be tough to survive the yanking it takes to put em on) and overall a decent cover. I'm quite happy with them and reckon they'll serve the purpose well, which is the objective. I thought they're just the job at a decent price. They're far better than those cheapo stretch covers and they last a fair while too.
