Re-Upholstering the seats...
Nasty... In desperate need of replacement
Hog rings need to be removed first
More hog rings! They are everywhere.
After the hog rings are removed, the seat cover can be rolled over the edge of frame for removal.
Time to get this thing off
Hog rings all removed. Pry the frame up and throw out the old padding and cover.
Now the bottom seat... notice the burlap has disintegrated.
Cover and padding removed, ready to be recovered.
I had to make a small repair in the tunnel hump area where the spot weld had broken. A self tapping screw solved the problem.
Seat cover on and hog rings going on.
A few more hog rings to go!
Finished bottom seat, looking good
All in all about 2 hours to finish the bottom seat. On to the top!
Tools of the trade... Buy lots of hog rings....LOTS!
Top seat cover ready to be stretched over the muslin covered cotton.
Finished product installed... Looks pretty good. Don't forget the seat belts!
The upper seat frame was in rough shape and the padding was worn out
While the stitching was holding on the upper seat back, the seat covers had torn where it attached to the frame and the cover was sliding around...
Stitching and seams were split pretty bad on the bottom seat
