    recovered my Blazer bucket seat(PIC.\'S)

    I finally finished recovering/rebuilding one of my Blazer's bucket seats.
    I was in pretty bad shape.Prob. used to be the drivers seat how beat up it was.

    Anyway here are a couple pic's and a link to the rest of the pic's.

    This is what I started with.Grey velour

    and 2 of the after.

    click here
    to see the rest of the pic's.It will include pic's of the bucket seat and rear bench seat.

    You may need to sign up to see the pic's but it's fast and free.I think the pic's are worth it. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Disclaimer:
    I had never tackled upholstery work before so I learned while doing.
    I think things turned out o.k.

    I'm glad I took the time to get the imagestation membership - that was a pretty neat process to see your seats evolve. It looks like you made it happen with minimal costs - rings, pliers, covers, sheet metal, rod, etc. What was your figure, if you dont mind me asking? Also, where did you score your seatcovers? I have been in the market to redo my front /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif seats after several failed attempts at seat covers, but havent foudn any cover with the right price. I also have holes through mine, so I will probably have to spring for new foam.

    I got the covers at www.gmcpauls.com
    The 2 front buckets were $209.95
    The rear bench cost $239.95
    Expensive but it was the cheapest I could find.
    Pretty good quality reproduction covers though.Good fit and finish.

    Other than the initial cost of the covers the hog ring pliers(good ones,not cheapo ones) cost $28.00 and $2.00 for 200 hog rings.I'll say about $10.00 in foam,$10.00 in various metal(rod and sheetmetal) and the powder coating cost me $150.00(that was for 21 pieces I had done,the seat frame was included in the 21 pieces).
    I got the seat powder coated to help protect it.These seats are getting harder to find plus I'm planning on keeping the Blazer for a LONG time,that's why the powder-coat.

    It's not cheap doing it the right way,but I'm happy with the results. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
