Saw the thread on the hounds tooth and said I'd do some up. These are really sharp. Think I may put in my red car.
Have a limited quantity already done up, but we can turn these in less than a week so it will allow backorder. These are a very nice option for the price, and not as hot as the vinyl in the summer too!

The camera on my phone has s difficult time focusing so I'll need to drop into a light booth, and get better pics, but you get the idea.

On sale now here -

The yellow is hard to photograph, but it's VERY sharp too

I can do a set up for you, but it will be a few weeks, as I will have to get material in for it, but sure.

I believe houndstooth has an origin in Scotland, or somewhere thereabouts. The Germans know it as Pepita - or Pumpkin seed why, maybe Andy would know?



Also added the option for Blue, but we will have to make. Order it now and save.

I'm good for a blue/black set of 2 if you add the item to your website. Thanks.

On the site now. I'll bring in the blue and start on them as soon as we have our 1st order. Will do up a few for stock.

On your 914Rubber site, you added at picture of the blue/black pattern but it is not one of the colors available in the selection field (still only white, red, yellow).

Just added orange and blue to the options. Learned that if the stock quantity is 0 it will not display unless I override. I'll be bringing in material end of the week, so if you want these or other colors let me know I can do it all at once. I will also stock these once they are in. Just wasn't really sure what the distribution of these would be so I took a shot in the dark.


Thanks,
mark

Should be all fixed now -

I fixed the link so it goes right to the listing now

https://shop.914rubber.com/914-seat-vinyl-k...m?categoryId=-1

I have them listed as related items at the top.. the seat base bushings and seat adjuster handles are there too.


Let me add, thanks for some reason it was hidden. We also changed the foam to have a softer top section to compress for more comfort.
