Is there an easy way to recover seats? I got covers from OPG for a 72 chevelle, I'm having a hard time getting them to fit right. Any information would be a great help.

Try a dry-cleaners type of plastic bag over the foams? This lets the covers slide on easier without sticking to the foams.

Put the seat covers in the sun for an hour, and they will be more streachy. that way when you do the plastic trash bag trick, they will slip right on.

Hey Bill. Get a heavy duty garbage bag that will fit over it and you should have no problems. I did my seats for the first time last year without a glitch. Thanks to the guys from horse power tv. This is how I learned. They said after your done to rip the bag out, but I left mine in for a moisture bearier to save the foam and frame. You'll never know their there. Took about 8 hours for the total job just to be sure and taking my time. Good luck and keep us informed. RandyB..

Are you using new foam buns or the originals?
I webnt with the new repop stuff and had them professionally installed
BOY DO THEY SUCK!!!
the foam seems to be too thick/springy my head hits the headliner and the stiching on the new covers isn't straight or symetrical
