Thumbs up Re: Recovering '70 SS Bucket Seats

Getting that seam area (bolster) down to the springs and hog ringing it is the tricky part.I used another trick to get then down.Buy some long plastic tie wraps and push them thru small holes over the bolster wire and both ends down thru the foam pulling the bolster wire against the springs. Use 3- 4 or more per side until you get the seam where you like it. And you can pull them down slowly while adjusting the foam and seam to get a perfecty fit. Then you can attach the hog rings for permanent holding. You can remove the tie wraps or leave them.I also used this on the outer edges till they fit smoothly, then attached the hog rings.It's a lot easier to remove a tie wrap and reposition it than to cut a hog ring out of the bolster area. It's like having an extra set of hands to hold the covers in position.
