Seat re-upholster

Made a post earlier in December asking advice on my worn seat. I was torn between buying a new $100+ seat or just reupholstering it myself. I went the DIY route and I didn’t come out terrible. Having never upholstered anything I’d say i did Ok. I couldn’t get the crotch section right, but I still have a half yard of vinyl to redo it some other time.

I really like the bandana on the end you didn’t like, IMO. It’s personality.

The legendary Chunky himself has told me...DIY seat upholster quite affordable and as you do more of them, your results will get better and better.
