  • Recovering my own seats!-gctid382001

    Ok all! So I am very proud of myself for getting the courage up to try and cover my own boat cushions on my 2750. I think they look great. I did not want to go with the white, even though I know they would be cooler temperature wise, but I just dont like such a stark environment. It really wasnt as hard as I thought it would be. Check them out on my profile page, I think I attached them on this thread, but I probably screwed it up! i have some before and afters to share. Im not done yet, but I dont have much left to do. Anyone have some advice, please feel free to let me know. I did this without any guidance... so any would be appreciated.Have a great day, and happy motoring!Dave

    See that was not so hard now was it! Looks good and when you get up your courage a bit more you can do the backrests. It's not too bad a job, just use the old backs as a template and you will be surprised how nice a job you can do!

      Thanks dewman. Ya, those are next. Im going to hit the captains chair tomorrow, and do that one completely, and even reduce its size a little to make it easier to pass through that whole area. Kinda too oversized for my liking. Gonna lop off about a good foot from the right. The long backrest will have to wait for next week. I dont want to have it apart for the weekend. Going out for the day on Saturday!

        I did a stretch and staple job on the seats of my capri. I think the worst part of the project is the seats you start on and the seats you finish on tend to show your learning curve.
