Nope, on the contrary, there are a lot of parts & springs. The covers a a royal pain to get on!! The bench seats are way easier to do. I would gladly do 10 bench seats, over doing buckets, lol. Iíll do them, but itís hard work, and hard on the hands!! Those GTO buckets I did, took about 3 months. But I was still working too, Iím retired now. But I had to take them in stages to complete, and then thereís 2 of them. I took my time, I wanted to make sure I did them right the 1st time.

Re: Bench Seats, Having them Reupholstered

This seat is on its way to its new home in Alabama. The people drove 10 straight hours, up to Ohio, to pick it up.

Iíll need to know for sure, what year seat, the color & fabric and the style. That way Iíll make sure Iíll get one ready for spring. And an approximate window of time that you will be rolling thru Ohio, come springtime. I believe you have my cell now, just text me the details.

Re: Bench Seats, Having them Reupholstered

WOW! Darren didn't waste anytime getting home and installing his seat. He drove all the way up from Alabama & back. He got here in Ohio fairly early, Friday morning. These are the pics he sent, Saturday around noon.
Looks Awesome!

Re: Bench Seats, Having them Reupholstered

I just wanted to send a shout out to Tina and thank her for her help this weekend. She does some excellent work but she took some time to speak with me via Text message when I attempted to do my own seat. I am going to say that while I don't think mine turned out too bad, im going to leave this to the professionals from now on

Thank you Bob, but I really donít think I helped out that much. You had all the hard work, and your seat turned out just fine.

Re: Bench Seats, Having them Reupholstered

Working on getting some of the seat hardware sandblasted. Got a lot done, but still have quite a bit to do. Very tedious work indeed!

Re: Bench Seats, Having them Reupholstered

I built this seat awhile back, but i never really tried to sell it. This is a 81-87 seat in Saddle Tan Velour. Same as always, the frame, tracks and hardware have all been sandblasted and repainted. Tracks slide like new!!

How many spray cans of paint/dye do you think it would take to do a crew cabs door panels? Not change the color just re-spray the original.

Doing the same color, it shouldnít take but maybe 2 cans per panel. Maybe only one. Itís when you do a color change, it takes more.

Picked up another seat core. Still had a few broken springs that needed replaced.

Re: Bench Seats, Having them Reupholstered

Finally getting around to doing a seat for my own truck. It will be a fully restored seat. Frame will have a new grid and springs. Tracks look and slide like new. I will be using an original foam from a Rear Crew Cab. Those hardly ever get sat on.

It'll be done right and you'll know it was.
