Default seat cover help
i have those wet suite material seat covers and they slide around and dont stay close to the seat because of the shape of the seat.
has anybody stitched these down or used adhesive?
any info would be great.

One thing to try is get some 1/2" or 3/4" pvc pipe or a wooden dowel...cut it about 6-8" and then tuck it between the seat bottom and seatback...that should tighten them up.

Interior shops spray down the underside of some seat covers with something that makes the covers not move so much. I honestly can't remember what it is but if you call an interior shop they can tell you. I've seen them spray it from an airgun, it's a glue like consistency but if I recall it doesn't stick like glue.

Best way to do it is completely remove your seat and then while it's out attach it altogether, I had to do this to mine. I think though I am going to let an upholstery shop thats local put my stuff into black suede with white stitching
