Back to the Upholstery:


Continued working on the front seat.

  • Made a new seat cushion from 2" foam material.   Glued on a 2" front edge to match the original seat cushion.
  • Made paper templates from the old seat material and then cut out the material.
  • The wife & I positioned the material inside out on the seat and pinned it for sewing.
  • Once the material was sewn and the edges basted we installed the material and the batting on the seat.
  • It came out perfect.
  • Three down & one to go.  (The front seat back.)

I reupholstered my rear seat in the spring of 2006.
