Re: Recovering '70 SS Bucket Seats

Hey All,

To the guys that used an extra 1" foam over the existing, where did you stop with it - did you lay it over all the way over the top of the seat back (headrest area) ? It would seem that this might cause problems getting the covers on right. Same for the sides, did you hog ring it right around the edge or leave it there loose where the covers would pull it it snug ?

I pulled off and re-installed some original covers before(replaced the foams with nice used ones) and they turned out nice without any extra foam. So no experience with the aftermarket covers, do they fit looser ?

Thanks very much,
