When you find one, see if there's two. I need one, also. Not many blue seats available.

I can ship to Canada. Buy it, have it shipped to me and I'll send it along if it doesn't cost too much.

I bookmarked your link. Need to measure my seat to see which fits my Ford. Thanks.

Doing some searching I found this topic & wondered if there is any updates on seat covers. I would like to redo the seat on LGT 145 & was wondering if anyone has done any shopping with Speer Cushion.

I find that they have an email address & will take some pictures with measurements to see what they may have available or the charges to redo the two pieces. Any information on repairing this seat would be helpful.

Couldn't you just take the old cover to an upholstery shop (boat or auto preferably...) and have one made? Boat seat/top vinyl comes in all sorts of colors - seems like you could find a blue to match.....

 

I assume we are talking about the open side style seats which were actual upholstered cushions, and not the closed side style of molded plastic like most "modern" tractors.

 

If needing a match for the molded plastic seats, perhaps a vinyl dye on a similar style new yellow or white seat? I've only used upholstery dye one time and with less than satisfactory results.... but that may have been operator error - smile...

 

Poncho and Charlie, maybe it's just the angle, but my seat looks way different than either of yours.... Here is the seat on my openside

Mine has a high back with removable base and back pads - look like either of these would be easily recovered.....

Yes I have some contacts for doing that. I have also thought about taking them a part to make the patterns, then get blue vinyl & making my own like I did on a snowmobile that I had several years ago. I am curious to see if any one may have done business with this company. There is a few places on other projects that I have found businesses that will do things cheaper & better then I can find locally to do it. So if I find that no one has proceeded to getting an estimate to redo these pads, then I may take the detailed pictures & measurements to get an estimate on repairing this seat.

I have them bookmarked. Thinking about getting a cover for my closed side seat, but unsure how they measure for size. They are about the only folks I have seen with the Blue seats.
