RRC and D1 seats are next! I have the seats for templates and we will be prototyping them after we get the spare tire covers done. With any luck in the next two moths we will have inventory. If you have specific "wishes" for them in terms of pockets and features, please let me know.

Great question on manual vs power RRC seats. The short answer is: I don't know what design differences there are (and I sold my hunter about 5 years ago). We can sort it out though!

Thanks, and thanks for all of the orders so far!
Tony

Stay tuned!

Web addy?

I would be interested on a Tire Cover ( based on price ) Gray ( to much my bitching covers ).. does it come with the sexy bag? :-)

Website is kexbylimited.com

I've ordered several 33" and 31" tire covers in khaki to start. They all will have a full width pocket with positive closure and enough room for some muddy straps or clevises, a drainage grommet, and a side "tab" to attach a trail trash bag with a carabiner. I'm looking forward to get the final prototype!

I still have 2 91's(Lord help me); a Hunter and a County and I think the dimensions are pretty close. The main difference would be the electric box controller vs. the manual wheel adjuster location.
I'll take a look.

How are the tire covers going to be attached? Draw string, or another method?

Gus, they're going to be cinched at the back with a bungee-like cording. Draw string would tend to get very dirty hanging out from the canvas and would prematurely abrade both itself and it's "sleeve" in the canvas.

Tony, thanks for the info, I will be in ( based on cost of course )

I was been funny ( guess not ) about the bag as my Escape seat covers came on a very sexy duffle bag

WRT the power RRC power vs. manual I have a set of genuine covers on my Classic seats and they are close enough. I imagine you will have less room to work with (canvas vs. nylon) I am happy to test fit a report back on the manual RRC seats. Your covers look great!

We're considering a velcro'd panel that could be removed for the control box for the electric seats. And since they already have a rear map pocket, we will likely provide a rear opening to access that rather than build in a redundant pocket to the fabric.

Starting to run low on the first run of defender covers!

Thanks

Thanks

Do you make seat covers for the forward facing bench seats in the D90 soft tops?

Cheers...

Tony, have you decided what the next color will be and when those will be ready for sale?
