Recovering Bucket Seats

Well, after thinking I was going to get by just adding some padding, I realized the lower panel (behind your legs) on the driver side is bad.....almost looks like it has gotten really hot....hadn't seen this earlier. Think I'm going to buy a complete set of front seat covers and foam. Anybody had any experience replacing the covers on buckets? I've done some of this type of thing before but it's been awhile and never on a bucket seat. Car is a '62 SS. Can't imagine it's any big deal but thought there may be some hints or tricks. I'll get a good quality hog ring tool.
Any reason I can't get decent results as a relatively handy DIY'er? Thanks!! Bob

I have done several buckets . They are not that hard. Just get the covers warm like in the sun and go for it.
