Yes, he is right here in Auburn. Very nice fellow. I imagine he wouldn't mind some repeat business. I'll be glad to ask, and if he says he will then get you two in touch.Is your friend in your present location or in your home town? I guess it don't matter either way , you think he would be intrested in working on my rear seat covers?
Good for you !On my '68, I put new foam and seat covers on myself. I got the modified "Sport" foam and covers from TMI. It did this in 2014 and the seats still look new. I used metal coat hangers to make the metal rods you use with the hog rings. I watched several videos on YouTube to learn the techniques for getting tight covers without any wrinkles. Following these techniques, I didn't have any trouble installing them. If someone were using the stock style seats I would encourage them to watch installation videos on YouTube before deciding they can't do it. I'm sure you could do a nice, professional job. I didn't have any troubles installing the hog rings.
I was attempting to encourage others to give the upholstery project a try. It really wasn't that hard after you watch others do it several times before starting. There are just a couple of techniques you need to see regarding attaching the foam then using the wire to attach the part of the seat cover that tucks in before doing the stretch. Watching the experienced do the work in videos really takes the mystery out of how to get a wrinkle free tight result.Good for you !
I hear that. I don't ordinarily have problems but I've noticed if I wrench a lot, and after I spent a couple days pushing and pulling hoses for a coolant flush and new hoses etc on my son's car, they HURT.Its not that hard, but it kills your hands. They will hurt for 2-3 days afterwards… I like doing upholstery…but my hands do not…
