Best thing I can suggest is to buy some adhesive carbon fibre film off EBay or the like and cover your existing ones carefully. No one will know. Honest :wink:

...or peel off the existing covering, lightly sand them with a bit of sandpaper and paint them with black Hammerite.

Both answers so far assume you actually have the seat protectors to repair, and they are of course both valid.

However, if the protectors are missing, it'll be a bit difficult to repaint or wrap them.

So are they missing or do you still have them?

Have you tried the usual breakers or specialists?

And I can't find the item in the parts catalogue(!), so it may not have been available as a spare part.

Hi no still have the originals. But sounds like a good idea getting them covered

Assuming you've followed up with Wayne over at http://elanm100.com/web-shop ? I know shipping has been a problem with COVID, but maybe its improved?

Mine were manky, but I detest carbon fibre finished trim, so I recovered them in a thin black leather cloth stuck on with contact adhesive. Very pleased with the outcome.
