If I understand your question correctly...try putting a large plastic trash bag over the foam before installing the new seat cover. The plastic makes it easier to move the cover around. Then you can either leave the plastic bag in place or reach up and pull it out.

Bill,
Im covering a 66 bucket. It has the pleats down the front and running lenght ways on the seat bottom. They go in the grooves of the foam and are hog ringed from the back.
I just don't know how to keep them in the grooves they keep slipping out.

If you spray the foam with a silicone lubricant, it might make it easier to get the cover in place.
