Better? Can we now get off the fact that I had some dirt on my floor mats?

The inner rail is not a big deal, but I have had a few people comment on the outer rail, and how it just seems to stick out.

I'll just have to see if I can do something with it, or maybe not.. I'm not going to spend too much time on it, I was only asking if others had covered it.

Upon second look - I think you'd be better off getting some adapters made to move the entire rail/seat back. Then say to hell with short people driving your car. lol

You need some Weather Tech floor liners in there. Those carpets won't stay looking new for long with that much dirt everyday.

That is not a normal day, I posted above that it was because of the weather and the stone driveway in the park I was at.

Don't ever lose that great optimism about GM. They don't give a shit about seat rail covers, but God bless you for your optimism.

There are 'bellows' type covers for things like milling machines, to keep chips out. The 'guide rail covers' listed here are closer to what you mean

Here is a COB way to cover the rails. I rough cut an oil bottle (guess which brand) and it fits over the rail. You would need to use 3M two sided tape to hold it in place.

I can't believe all the people giving you grief about this. It's certainly not the craziest thing I've read here, not even today. Personally I think the guy who won't drive his car in the rain and the guy who loves driving his Camaro so much that he wants to get another car so he doesn't have to drive it are much crazier.

I also think the rails on these cars are an eyesore and seem to stick out a lot more than most cars for some reason. Most of the covers I've seen just cover up the ends of the rails where they bolt to the floor. Obviously you can't cover up the business part of the track unless you never put your seat forward. You could try moveable tracks like you mentioned, but when the seat is forward they would really be hanging out there in space just waiting to get broken off.

Seriously, I don't know so I am asking. What car does come with the seat rails covered? I do agree with you that GM really needs to do something about this. Just the other day I was driving around town and a kid yelled at me "WOW, Beautiful car, but those are some ugly seat rails".

I was thinking that you could go to a junk yard and get some shifter boots. Make a closed ended tube that will fit around the track and attach it to the seat frame. Might take a couple tries, but you'll get it.

hahahahahahaha..........

The person I was talking to the other day said it just seemed to stick out further than other cars he has seen. I have never had one that came with any kind of covers, but after looking at them (I had not really noticed it before this person said something) they do seem to stick out more than other cars that I have had. Especially the door side rail.

the problem is why should gm waste the money for a parts that is not necessary? the seat tracks pretty much sit on the floor. the only thing a cover would do is maybe go around the side and the front, but not the top.

yes vehicles that have a raised seat will usually have some sort of cover. thats just because the seat track isnt directly on the floor, its raised a bit so it to cover the gap.

This ^ but, get a matching floor mat and cut the rug to size, wrap it around and sew a piece of Velco on each side to secure it.

Guys stick to the topic that was asked and if you don't have an honest suggestion dear god quit posting stupid comments.

Who gives a shit if his floor mats are dirty.

ps I will ask my Buddy Tracy at Recovery Room Interiors for some suggestions.

I've never seen any for Camaro. However I have taken many seats out of GM vehicles and they do exist in the other models (GM technician). Usually they don't cover much though, but they do a decent job of making the area look nicer. They are smaller plastic trim pieces that clip over the ends of all four corners of the rails. The back pieces use a round metal retainer clip that fits on the head of the seat bolt and holds the trim into place. Perhaps one of those set ups would be compatible and give you a little coverage. I've seen them on most everything newer from Cadillacs, buicks, trucks, and acadias.
Also don't know why all the fuss over a little dirt on the mats. I drive mine daily, have orange carpeting installed in it, and am a technician so I dance in ick all day long. My floor mats are far worse! XD and no I don't clean it everyday. Pft to tired and hungry to sit there and clean floor mats after work.
