Maybe 10 years ago someone was able to find a close match for the darker outer material. The lighter inside material has not been matched to date.

Someone found a "close" material for the inner material with a China source (?), I don't remember... but enough people poopoo'ed it and was never pursued... or something like that happened.

Keep in mind FloFit seats went out-of-business a few times and/or their distribution.

If you want the full story, pull up a chair and go through this thread. Dave gave you the cliff notes. There really is nothing out there.

I believe I messaged the seller of that red Saleen about the upholstry a while back when he sold the car. He said he ended up using SMS Upholstry in Oregon. He said they had the red piping too. He stated it was the only place he could find to do this. He said they got close with the material. I would redo the upholstry in my car but funding is tough right now. There's still much to be redone on my car. Think he said it ran him $1500 in labor and $1000 in material to do the front and back. That was back in September 2019 when we exchanged messages.

I'm missing the driver's flow-fit seat as when the car was bought, it had a generic LX seat in its place. I have the head rest however, I really just need a Flo-fit seat and redo of the material to make it work. I saw someone sell beat up Saleen seats a while back on Ebay but the seats were missing the tracks. I checked the tracks for the LX driver's seat and tracks for the Saleen passenger seat, they looked different so I didn't buy those seats without the tracks off Ebay. Any ideas what tracks those Flo-fit seats used? Were they specific to Flo-fit?

Thank you for your feedback and information. I also hope someone replies to you with useful information regarding seat tracks in trade for your material expertise.

I ‘think’ my car has standard Ford type sliders. There is a type the SeatSource, no longer in business, used to sell. I think both were used, so either is right.

So will a standard Ford seat track for a LX seat work with a Flow Fit/Saleen seat that doesn't have tracks?

Should. There’s no special bracket holding my FloFits in.
