New seat covers for back seats in wagon

Ok to specify...not the third row seat in some of our wagons (not mine) but the middle seat that folds down to extend the cargo area.
Anybody have tips on this?
Since it's not a typical rear seat what issues is there with the upper part that fold down?

Re: New seat covers for back seats in wagon

Mike,
I just ordered new rear seat covers and cargo panel covers for my '72 yesterday in fact from James Hinshaw. Custom mfg'd in '70 Pearl color.

I haven't removed the seat yet but if it's like the '66 wagon frame off I did a few years ago...the upper portion just hangs on the metal folding panel and attaches across the bottom. With the seat upright, just remove the lower fasteners and lift straight up. May have to unbolt the seat hinges too...mine were already out and at the paint shop at that time so I don't recall the exact sequence.
Easy to attach new covers because the backside is hidden. Typical hog ring install...same as the seat bottoms.

Bought it 3-4 weeks ago.
Originally a rust free CA car, the guy in IL that I bought it from purchased it in '06. He drove it on the HR Power Tour long haul TWICE. Still got the Long Haul stickers on the windshield.
I flew up just north of Rockford, IL and drove it home the 2nd Saturday in Dec...850 miles. Got just under 19 mpg.
The pic in my signature is what it looked like at time of purchase.
Made a few changes since...

Re: New seat covers for back seats in wagon

Mike et el'........please keep the thread going. I just received my rear covers and cargo panels covers for my 71 Wagon and I want to see how everyone makes out with their installations. Figured you guys could make it easier for me to do as you will find the issues and shortcuts . For 2013, I am doing a bunch of detail work and other things to my wagon....here is a current shot of the work in progress.........

Re: New seat covers for back seats in wagon

I did my 68 wagon rear seat some time ago. Have 2 people to handle the upper part of the rear seat when you remove it because it weighs quite a bit...at least the 68 does!

Re: New seat covers for back seats in wagon

I installed the freshly recovered three cargo covers on Friday and will be re-installing the front & rear seats today along with door panels.
Replaced the green panels, seat covers, and cargo area on the wagon with Pearl.
Can post pics later...

Re: New seat covers for back seats in wagon

Mike....I did re-cover my rear (middle seat) via PUI covers. Got them from OPGI. They fit great!!!! If you need any other info or feedback, PM me with your phone number and I'll walk you through the process.

Hey Bill.....I see that you bought Mike's 70 Wagon from New Jersey. I was with him at local show when he bought it last me......actually beat me to it. It is a clean ride...enjoy!!!
