Ok, here are a couple of simple things to consider. Get a table that will allow you to go all around the seats as you work on them. This will take a lot of fatigue out of this job. Another thing is to not toss out ANYTHING until the job is completely done. You will need to remove some of the wires around the edges of the old upholstery and this is not obvious until you are almost done.

If you were only joking about going to the garbage and you haven't taken off the old upholstery, then take lots of pictures before you take it apart. Better yet, leave the old cover on one seat while take apart and reassemble the other. If you weren't joking about having already taken them apart and you didn't take pictures, I bet you'll be visiting this forum again!

I recently recovered a set of '68 buckets. I took my time and was amazed at how easy it was! And these were some seats that looked like they were fit only for the trash heap! I used new covers, foam and burlap after cleaning and painting the springs and frames. Go for it!
