For the sheepskin, take a short 1 hour roadtrip to the Ikea store in Bolingbrook. Inside you will find large metal bins with these in them:



I am using one right now and it works very well. You can trim it so it fits just the driver's seat or even leave it as one for both the driver and passenger seat. You can just place it on the seat and it stays there (which is what I did) or sew on some straps to keep it from coming off. You can look through the bin and find one that you feel is large enough and thick enough.

As far as the "dipstick" , you might try going to the dealer and ordering part #19104-MN5-000. It will be around $15. After you add in shipping costs from buying online, it would cost more than ordering from the dealer. IMHO, I would try just straightening it out by maybe putting it between 2 blocks of wood for a day or so. Or even just ignore it and look into the resevoir to make sure it has antifreeze in it. I don't believe having the proper level of antifreeze is as important as the level of oil in engine or oil in the forks.
