Back to the Upholstery:


I reupholstered my rear seat in the spring of 2006.  Since I want to drive this car this summer I started on the front seat. 

    Click on the picture for the blow by blow.

I spent Saturday cleaning up the front seat's frame assembly.   Removed all the old upholstery material, sanded and cleaned the metal then spared the frame with flat black Rust-oleum.

I spent the remainder of the day stripping the material off the front seat springs and made templates from the old material out of brown paper.   I will be doing the same as the rear seats, canvas cover over the springs and two inch foam cushion on top.
