first off I want to thank the posters at CT!
I don't like that I am over writing the post about "the big C",
This is small potatoes to that post.
But............
As those that before us would be upset that we gave up this is for them.
I appreciate ALL of those before us !
How does one honor such folks?
A sticky?
I too as many on here will be gone and only a memory and maybe my/ our posts will show up in a search? I hope so.
I will not add any more words to this post, just pictures.

I didn’t have a kit when I re-covered my seats, so I improvised.

I started by covering the springs with heavy duct cotton canvas. I sewed a hem around the edges and inserted a straighten coat hanger wire in the hems to hog ring it in a 4-way stretch to the frame. This spread individual weight across more springs.

Then I added a ½” polyester juke pad on top of that with 2” super dense foam for final padding on top.

I used the original seat covers as patterns to cut and sew new covers. I sewed coat hanger wire hems in them too to hog ring them to the frames.

It took a little (lot) sewing and re-sewing to get the hems adjusted right to fit tight.
