Okay, I gotta admit that I got the idea from Andi’s blog and her Wet Okole seat covers. I thought that’s a good idea as I have a moonroof and I just know I’m gonna stand on the front seats to shoot photos out the sunroof. Plus having something to protect the seats if I’ve gone to the beach, out in the rain or sooty from covering a brushfire. So here are the front seats done in my CR-V, still have to finish the back seats.
I know there are cheaper seat covers but they’re made out of non-waterproof fabric and more importantly they’ll cover up the side airbags from deploying from the seats. Not a good idea during an accident.
But seeing as how expensive Wet Okole’s are I found a similar seat cover made by Cover King. They claim to be better than Wet Okole covers but it might be just a Pepsi Challenge type of thing. But by ordering through Costco’s website I saved about $100 over buying the Wet Okole covers. So I thought I did pretty well, until I found this ad in the J.C. Whitney catalog online. It would have probably cost me only 1/2 of what I paid and even had a free car cover. It pays to do some research before shopping.
The CR-V is about done now. Got seat covers on, windows tinted, foam pads on the crossbars for the roof rack and the cargo basket figured out for the roof. About time for some kayaking and adventure.
*Okay, I checked the JC Whitney website and those covers are only for Jeeps. I don’t feel so bad anymore.
