ay up. time for how to part 2 front seat covers. this is a guide to making early seat covers, the square type. I guess in principal this will work for any seat covers though. same idea.. anyway this is gonna be quite a long and labour intensive one, so ill do it in two parts. also pic heavy. so first up.. if you've got old manky covers, remove them as best as possible and try not to tear them too much. if you do tear them, just duct tape them back together so they're in the shape they were originally, or there abouts. then carefully cut all of the stitching through out the covers, writing what each panel is i.e. seat front, seat back etc. then, a bit tricky.. but flatten the parts out onto your vinyl and draw round them.. then cut out. as I make quite a lot of seat covers, i made some templates that i keep and re-use. so.. once you have all your sections cut out.. you can start the 'hemming' part. some of the panels will need a hem, to accept either wire or rods, to fit to the seats. I'm starting with the seat base fronts, which are both the same.. you will have 4 side bits and 2 fronts.. you will see on original seat covers there is a little hem where the cover goes over the frame.. so re-create that first on all 4 side pieces.. heres a picture of all the panels that will need a hem.. hopefully you can see from the pic where the hem is etc.
