Default Aftermarket seat covers

I'm looking for seat covers (driver and front passenger seats only) for my 2005 PT Cruiser convertible.

Has anyone here had good luck in this regard? Or bad luck?

For over a year I priced replacement seat covers and other repair alternatives to replace or repair SOOO BIG's seat covers but found there are no perfect matches and the aftermarket solution ran from junk to prohibitively expensive. There's a product for repairing small crack in leather, if that's your problem but again, the kit cost is prohibitive and the color match at best is iffy.
I finally lucked out and found a good set of replacement seats at a salvage yard. I searched for almost a year before I found these replacement seats for SOOO BIG.
I was on LKQ's search list and had them notify me every time a PT came into their yard.
Total out the door at our local LKG Pick Your Part, hauled out in one of their famous wheel barrows was around $150.00. The seats came out of a 2001 PT with a blown motor but the car itself was in pretty good condition. Most parts yards were asking three and four times this amount for lesser quality seats. In my case it was all in being at the right place at the right time.
Good luck.

Happy PTin', ptprice

I have not bought these myself, but my friend has and they seem to be good quality. He has had them for 2 years and still look new and feel great. I will be buying a set later on this summer/fall to complete my cars Black/Red look. But, these are good and have good reviews.
