Default Seat Pads

Hi
I got a set of triton seats, but my little darling son who was helping me sand the chassis couple of weeks ago to get prepped for paint thought he would clean my seats.... with grit paper!

Now have lovely swirly patterns all over them !!! happy days.

So I'm going to need some seat pads to cover this up, also was planning on fitting them anyway... anyone know where I can buy these?

Cheers
Rapid

JK Composites do a set for fibreglass seats, expensive though being 70 per seat, might be worth looking into making your own:

Can you not polish the swirl marks out? I'm sure Nathan will be able to give you some tips.

I would get some fine wet and dry use wet with a bit of soap to get rid of the deeper marks tack rag then use some cutting polish like tcut then use a quality wax polish to finish just take care not to rub through the gelcoat on the seat

Camping mats use thin high density foam and its ideal to make a seat pad as its thin and supportive.

Just looked at Tatey's suggestion and it loks like covered foam patches as above.
