Are you ready for the end of the week? I hope so, as another Thursday is already here. That means Friday is about to greet us again, and it’s time for another Throwback Thursday.
This week, we are taking a short trip back to May 2017, to check out, DIY Tech: Reupholster Your Seat At Home – It’s Easy. When the seat in our C10 Chevy Cheyenne was in need of some attention – I was getting tired of constantly repositioning the southwestern blanket, I decided that a new upholstery from Classic Industries was the best option for my truck.
There was a seam coming apart, someone had tried to dye the seat black at one time, and the Southwestern-style blanket would never stay in place. The torn upholstery hurt my eyes to look at, but the thought of draping a cheap, ill-fitting cover over it hurt even more.
Many people change their own oil and/or belts. Many can even fix a stalled engine. Then, there are some who can even smooth dents and eliminate rust holes. However, very few people think they can reupholster their own car seats. Hopefully, we can alleviate any concerns you have about this task, and you will feel confident to tackle this simple project at home.
In the original article, we get into how to remove the old seat upholstery, prepare the seat assembly for the new skins, and even how to install the new skins while working in your garage or driveway. You really can do this at home. Although the seat we redid came from a C10 truck, the same principles and processes we applied to our reupholster job are the same for almost any classic hot rod.
The article gets into the nitty-gritty of what you’ll need and how to get professional-looking results. Suffice to say, there’s a lot more in-depth insight in this informative article. That definitely makes it worthy of a second look. For that reason, I selected DIY Tech: Reupholster Your Seat At Home – It’s Easy, as this week’s Throwback Thursday showcase article.
