No tears, everything for $13 from U-Pull-It. Only problem was, these covers were filthy!

3 wash cycles later.....well, the results show. I swapped in the 03+ style seats but they were black and that didn't match my interior. But now they match and it is really comforting to know that the seat covers are clean.

Some of the thin foam on the back side of the covers came off in the wash, so I cut out the foam from my old seat covers and carefully laid it down while I installed the seat covers on top of the seat cushions.

Had to do it that way since you can't add pics in gallery threads.

I really liked the way they turned out. I never even thought about swapping seat covers, originally I was planning on scoping out another set of grey seats to replace the black ones, but there was another guy on here who made a thread about washing his grey seat covers as well.

The only difference was, when he lost some foam in the washer I believe he just left it off.

And the headrest covers, you know the term "like a hot dog in a hall way?" It was actually more like "like a hall way in a hot dog" if you can imagine that. But if you take your time and work all around the cover you'll eventually get them off and on.
