I am working on a set of 1969 Chevelle bucket seats. I have the new coverings in dark blue. I have looked at pictures of other 69 chevelles seats and the look like they not just covered staight across the custion but pulled down along the outer rib to make the sides at an angle. It there an easy way to get this look or is it a tough thing to do.

69 seats have a row of hog rings under that seam on the seat bottom. They go THROUGH the seat foam bottom and onto the frame. that give the seat bottom that sculpted look I assume you are referring to. 70 and up did not have that row of hog rings. The 69 seats are harder to recover for that reason.

my 70 buckets had a seam sewn in underside of the seat bottom. Yes they go through the foam and use hog rings to pull them into the seat frame. The problem is some seat covers have to have this seam sewn in at a trim shop
