The 2019 Complete Seat Covers Buying Guide

Car Seat Covers Tech Center Guide
One of the great on-the-road ironies is that while you’re sitting comfortably in your car seat, the seat itself is having to stand up to a tremendous amount of abuse. Dirty clothes, wet swimsuits, spilled drinks, kids snacking in the backseat, slobbering pets, seat friction and harsh sunlight all have the potential to ruin and wear out your great looking seats. And if something terrible has befallen your interior, a complete reupholster will cost you dearly.

My 2015 Toyota Tacoma TRD Off Road Access Cab 4x4 offers bed space to camp in, haul my dirt bike around, and it's been done up to take on the trails. Favorite mods include my Icon coilovers to soak up the bumps. My Walker Evans 501 Legend wheels wrapped in Toyo RT tires give me the clearance from my upper control arms to fit (and they look darn good) and the over-sized tires take on rocks with plenty of traction. My Rigid Industries fog lights have kept me out of a ditch or two when night wheeling. Growing up going to car shows and helping my dad work on the family vehicles ignited my passion. My best memory was the first time I flushed the coolant. My dad forgot to tell me to keep my face out from under the drain plug. Never made that mistake again!


    • Hey Nigel,

      Wow, pretty awesome you have a Silver Shadow! Unfortunately we do not carry seat covers for those, and I couldn’t find too many options out there that are custom. I think your best bet would be universal seat covers if you just want to cover them up and protect them, or an upholstery shop if you need them recovered.

      Unfortunately there just isn’t much of a market for these cars anymore. Very cool you have one and are keeping the dream alive!


  1. I’m looking for covers to fit a gmc 1500 has a center console that does not move with that in mind I just want to cover the bucket seats

  2. Do you have anything that would help make the bolsters on bucket seats less pronounced? I drive a 2020 Forester but I have horrible shoulders from my time in the Army, flat cushions are a lot more comfortable.

    • Hey Ben,

      So I checked around and I couldn’t find really much of anything that we had to flatten out the back of the seat. Most seat covers have either uniform padding to keep the shape of the seat, or do the opposite of what you want and actually add bolstering. I’m going to shoot you an email right now with a few ideas that might help you out.

      Cheers, and thank you for your service!
