But then itís a pain to try and get that plastic pulled back out. I have actually had several seats that I have stripped down for restoration, and they had been recovered at one time and found the plastic still under the cover, they just left it there, lol.

Re: Bench Seats, Having them Reupholstered

Did a little road trip to Indiana, to meet for the Black Velour seat in the above post.
Came home with 3 cores seats. Got the all stripped down for restoration. I did take the Medallions off the Mystic seat and got them all cleaned up.
