For purposes of the pre=existing product used for this project, the reader if considering this project must know this is not tried and true.
Car owners responsibility, not writers. I am broke and am not worth a law-suit, but I do care. Don’t cover seat belt, don’t invalidate warranty, and realize there could be a color transfer. Realize if you have small kids in the car with this exists a hazard, but that depends on you. Use common sense.
I despise disclaimers, it takes the fun out of innovative ideas.
Materials needed: 1 fat friends t-shirt or “hoodie.”
Cost: Nothing, or a three dollar used t-shirt or hoodie. Prefer a short sleeve in both clothing items.
So one goes to the auto store to buy a set of cheap seat covers, and they are not cheap at all. If you purchase seat covers with your new car, rest assured they alone would or could cost a single car payment.
All right, this writer was lucky. He had a fat friend, who had a worn out t-shirt. This writer values his friends, so he does not say to his buddy, “Hey pal, let me use your shirt for a seat cover, or a tent.”
This writer held that thought, and went down to the used clothing shop and purchased a very large team jersey.
This writer than went out to his car, and slipped the neck-hole over the cars front seat, and he made sure the seat belt was not obstructed in its proper designed use. The bottom of the jersey fit snug when stetched down to the bottom of the seat. With a little nip and tuck, this jersey for this car fit well like a finger print.
To date, over a year there had been no color transference from the jersey to the seat. It looked cool too, because the team, an NFL champion’s logo was observed. This is a great way to find your car too, unless some-one steals the car for the seat cover.
That’s a good idea, one may suggest. You know what, this writer had a good idea once for a major soft drink company, and sought to submit it to them.
The response was more or less that they had their own people for marketing, and if they did use a submitted idea outside the scope of employment, a release would be signed agreeing that (this writer) could not sue for more than two thousand dollars.
That’s another story.
It is that bad these days. Be careful, and use common sense with any “DIY” project especially when safety could be involved.
