I'm considering restoring my 1970 seats myself. Anyone done this, have pictures, links to threads, etc. I've searched a few times and not really found what I'm looking for. I dont think I'm going to use the rear seat, no one can sit back there anyways. So i'm thinking of just carpeting the back part where the seat would be. I saw a 70 nova and it looked pretty clean. Specifically a step by step type thing. So far I've got this: 1. Dis-mantel old seats. remove factory vinyl, cushion, ect. 2. sand blast frames and springs. 3. either powder coat or POR90 the metal. 4. Buy covers, cushion, and spring tools, new springs(if needed) 5. work cushions onto frames(glue i think) 6. powder cushions and slip covers over. 7. cuss...throw stuff, and try to cover cushions again(ive read this is a bi*ch) Ive also read that sometimes there is some extra space in the cushion and it leaves wrinkles. Not sure if they were using stock cushions or not. how to do the head rests? Or do you just buy new ones? How much did it cost you to do yourself. If you paid an upholstery shop, how much did they charge? Was it worth it? I've priced things at Classic industries around $1000 for just supplies.
