Newbie with seat cover question 51 F1

Greetings from Texas!


I've been in the old car hobby for many years, but recently purchased "Gus d Trux" which is a 1951 F1 with the flathead V8, 5 Star Cab. For now it will be a daily driver with all the dents and dings. It is quite a attention getter just the way it is. My first major repair was to rebuild the steering gearbox and wow what a different it made.


My question for now is....has anyone used the saddle blanket seat covers advertised on ebay with success? If so, how is the fit?


Here is a link of the same covers on Amazon
Amazon.com: OxGord Saddle Blanket Full Size Truck Bench Seat Cover for Ford, Chevy, GMC, and Dodge Trucks, Red: Automotive Amazon.com: OxGord Saddle Blanket Full Size Truck Bench Seat Cover for Ford, Chevy, GMC, and Dodge Trucks, Red: Automotive


My current upholstery is like new, but my best friend (4 legged) is always riding with me and I would like something to protect the vinyl from claw marks. Right now I'm using a moving quilt for protection.


Thanks,
Scott in Texas

Welcome Scott! If you've lurked for more than 10 minutes, you know that pics are essential for everyone's enjoyment.

Can't speak to the durability of the saddle blanket covers. I'm sure someone will be along shortly with experience.

I tried to post some photos but I guess since I am new and don't have many posts under my belt it can not post photos.

Everybody gets to post pics: https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...ure-guide.html

If you are using the mobile app, you can't readily load pics unless you select the 'View Full Site' button and then the above instructions can be used.

We had a '79 F-100 Ranger XLT with an aftermarket saddle blanket seat cover. I don't know it was the same brand you're looking at, probably not, but it held up really well for about 10 years. We abused the crap out of it too. The '79 seat was bigger than your '51, so I'm not sure about the fit, but it fit the '79 well and stayed in place.

Actually, you can. At least with an iPhone.

When in the "New Reply" screen, select the "+" option next to the "Send" at the top. This opens the "Advanced Controls" dialog screen where you can attach pictures and links. It even has an option to take a picture.

Fair enought on the iPhone functionality. The great unwashed using Android devices don't have that option.

I didn't know that. I assumed the IB app would be the same on every platform.

I had a Blackberry for a long time. They (boss) gave me a 'droid to try for a week but the carrier didn't have good coverage here. (Rural) They decided on the iPhones.

As much as I like the features of a cell/smart phone, it's still just an electronic ball and chain. One of the reasons I like to canoe in Northern Minnesota is the cell coverage ends and the edge of the Boundary Waters.

Sorry for the hijack, SSG. We now return you to the regularly scheduled topic.
