Awsome work there. Nothing like doing the job yourself and saving tons of expense.
I'm jelous. I've been wanting to make my own seat covers and door panels. I can't seem to bring myself to spend $800- $1000 for an interior kit or some done locally when I know I can do it myself. Just don't have access to a proper sewing machine. Any recomendations on what type of machine to use that can handel vinyl and similar materials?
Very nice work.

It does ,, do you staple it at the top then pull it over to hide the staples ?? just wondering

QUOTE=DesertDeuce... Looks great man! What did you use for the staples on the upper part of the wagon back seat

the trim thats screwed around the top and sides of the seat hides the staples
we used good old 3/16 staples with a t50 staple gun
the front seat should be close to done tonight its been a real bear

I just redid my seats with PUI bright red stuff ala nightshade(thanks again Jeff) - I was going to sew mine own up but I drink too much beer to that kinda work. I did everything but the back seat top in about 1.5 hours. but the 1/4 inch staples I bought wouldnt load in my staple gun (they were supposed to fit so says the staple gun box) So 2 hours + a week later maybe i'll get it done this weekend. Or maybe i'lll just drink a few more :yes:
I think fresh interior was the best money I spent on the car its alot more comfortable and smells better now.
