Those are the optional Ventilated Orange seats that were only available with certain body color roadsters (Lemans Sunset, all the blacks and silvers, maybe the whites?) from 2003-2009. I doubt you will find pre-made covers like from Katzkin, etc.

You will have to go to a professional shop and have them custom made. I know when I tried for a while just to get a color match no one came close. No clue where you would find the black webbing, but if the shop is good they should be able to match everything fairly closely.

From the pic your seats look fine - why the covers?

Edit - you said your car was an 04, I just noticed that the pic is from an 07-08 Solar Orange roadster.

I really liked these seats back in the day, I would have taken them in my coupe if I could have, you shouldn't have a problem having something made for them.

Dyeing/refinishing usually has the seats feeling plasticy and sometimes the dye will rub off on clothes. Worth a shot, but just be aware it could go badly. Look for someone reputable and ask them some questions.

Some years ago a friend bought those seat covers and installed on his Enthusiast Roadster. I'm sure they are available somewhere.

I bought a 2004 ZR about 3 months ago with the burnt orange ventilated seats. The driver seat was heavily cracked and the left seat back bolster had some tearing. Looked horrible.

I wanted to re upholster them but did some researching and decided to go with Leatherique products. End result are my seats look like new. To color match I used MSPaint and did 2 solid days of printouts to get a perfect match. The owner of Leatherique now has the color in his database.

I followed Leatherique's instructions to a tee. I did use his clear top coat but was unhappy with the look (way too shiny), so I went do Michaels and bought some satin clear coat water based acrylic and put that over the top coat. Worked perfectly.

The crack repair and re dye is holding up great.

Lots of information but the website is very dated and pita to sort through. Well worth the trouble though.
