    Recovered my bucket seat(PIC\'S)

    This is in the "Garage" as well but it's 1st gen. related so I'll post it here too.

    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 got them from GMC Pauls.
    www.gmcpauls.com
    buckets were $209.95 for the pair.
    the rear bench was $239.95
    That was about the cheapest I could find.

    The truck shop has good prices but I have heard of a few people getting bad service. I bought my mirrors from them and they seem to be good quality. They were a lot cheaper than ChevyDuty, LMC & Brothers.

    Ah crap!Figures...it's just like that commercial where the Dad tells the son as soon as he buys the big screen t.v. he'll see it cheaper somewhere else /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
