buckets seats

I about to order some the seat covers for my 67 impala from classic industries. Does anyone has some instructions or videos I can see to find out how to install them?

Once you take one apart you should know how to put it back together. Be sure the material is warm so that it will stretch. Set it out in the sun for a while. You may want to do the back seat first to gain experience. Buckets are a little harder.

Here's some vidoes to review, I was also going to do the same a while ago, did the back seat them brought the buckets and back seat to an upholsterer to complete and re-do. Heating up is imperative as stated, I also see many installers using a hair dryer or lown heat heat gun during install.




There more on you tube, search around.

Advantage of an upholster doing the work is he will repair any broken springs or frame wire he finds and generally replace the open cell foam seat cushions that rot as they used rubber back before Mr. Roberson told Dustin Hoffman's character about plastics.

Not to mention new cotton bats on top of the foam rubber that has absorbed more "precious bodily fluids" than General "Jack" D. Ripper from the movie "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" ever worried about.
