Question Recovering Seats

I need to refurbish my seats. Anyone here ordered the kit sold by Pelican Parts and installed it yourself? Is this something that someone with no experience can do? Or, would I be better taking the kit and the seats to a local shop that specializes in interiors?

Thanks

You can do it. Just wear some gloves so no fiberglass will get into your hands. Take your time and it will look great.

What's involved? The seat bottoms look pretty straight forward. Does the center back pad come out like the bottom? Does the vinyl on the sides and headrest just peel off?

The sides are held in by rods which are hooked on by clips. WHat you do is grap the metal wire running up & down and push the vinyl towards the back of the seat. This will unhook it from the seat. This metal wire keeps the seat vinyl stretched consistantly.

Poke around and you will see.

When you have the wires out (one at the base on the bottom of the frame) reinsert them in the new cover.
