Anyone know anywhere to get some decent fitting half decent car seat covers as a cost effective way of sprucing up a bit while I save for a proper upgrade? Mk 3 ford capri laser

Welcome to the forum Mrbaboon.

With seat covers the world is your lobster, anything from ebay to Halfords. The problem with the Capri is getting 50/50 split rear seat covers, you may have to get them just as one piece like a rear bench seat.

Good luck and hope you put some more posts up here about your car; we'd all like to see it and and if you need any technical questions answered then there's plenty of knowledgeable people on here.

Yeah there's lots of choice and just wasn't sure if anyone had already got some that were a nice snug fit.

Car is attached it's a laser but the previous owner put the s stripes on for some reason.

Might be a bit of a colour clash with the sheepskin style and white car I can't see any colours I'm they offer unfortunately

I might be tempted with a pair of those grey ones. I remember having a set of real sheepskin ones back in the day that came to me fitted to an old Merc 230E. As the Merc's seats were OK under them, I removed them and used to swap them from car to car that I had. They were extremely comfortable.

I think that just covers the front though? Are they a good fit over the seat?

In my opinion they are a good fit yes. And as Paul G says very comfortable too.

You can just use a blanket for the rears, proper old school, like when you used to lie down and go to sleep on the way home from holiday.

Are you intending to continue the S theme sometime and replace the Laser interior one day with Carla check S trim ?

Blanket must be tartan and draped over the seat backs so as to be visible thru the back screen ;)
