Default Feeler thread for GT2 Folding Bucket Seat bolster covers like the one pictured

Hi All ..
I have had a few Rennlist members that have asked me if I would consider making bolster covers for these seats...
Pictured below






Here is the final product!
If I may say so myself, I think they came out very nicely.. These covers pictured here are on a friends GT3RS done in Carrera White stitching

***************************************************************

These would be similar the protective bolster covers I currently offer for the 918, GT3, GT3RS and GT4's current seats.





I am posting this thread to gauge what kind of interest there might be out there in making these protective covers for the older GT 2, etc.... folding seats ? ( Pictured at the top )
There would be a significant cost associated to develop something this, so I would like to see if it is worthwhile to pursue ...?
I would also like ( for those in the know, what cars these seats were offered on, and what years ?
Please let me know your thoughts
TIA
Kind regards
Ed

It is a cover to protect existing bolster from "entry - exit" wear.

Hummm......
I know my post wasn't very clear based on some of the responses ....
Sorry my bad...
I currently make and have sold many of the current seat 918 / GT3/RS, GT4
LWBS protectors .. I know its hard to tell but there is a bolster cover on that passenger seat pictured !! That is my version of the 918 seat bolster protector
It is the version pictured below the GT2 seat picture
Please see these threads below, for that current seat version, and see the feedback from the Rennlist members who purchased mine (also, notice the price difference than the one you posted)
Pay particular attention to Sir Mooty's comments, as he sums it up better than I ever could
https://rennlist.com/forums/gt4/9579...er-covers.html

https://rennlist.com/forums/991-gt3-...er-covers.html
May I suggest you read through the thread, as you might find some things of interest
Best regards
Ed

Sorry, the reason I haven't posted a picture yet of this new GT2 folding seat cover is because I haven't made it yet ..
It's a feeler thread to see the level of interest ( I only pictured the current seat (918), that I have made for the 918 seat, which is in my car. I have sold many versions of that already ... see threads https://rennlist.com/forums/991-gt3-...er-covers.html

Pricing should be around the same as the 918 seat cover I am selling 475 -500
That would be for a pair if them.. This is all OEM material used, thread, leather etc..
