Having just fitted new seats in my 86 GT, I want to change the upholstery on my passenger seat fot the damaged drivers seat in my wife's 88 L4. I have managed to undo everything except fotr the ties that keep the seams in the seats attached to the bars that keep it tensioned...are there any threads or information available to show how it is done?
Thanks

First of all, if you only have to do the bottom part of the seat they are interchangable- you just have to move the pivot clip over to the other side. To remove the rods that you speak about - the rods are held into frame by some metal rings (hog rings). Cut the rings and slide the rods out.

BTW - when you go to replace those hog rings, you can pick up hog ring pliers and hog rings for pretty cheap at your local upholstery shop or even a farm kind of store. Yes, they actually use hog rings for another purpose - on hogs! Go figure.

The pliers will be worth the couple of bucks you spend on them, they make the job a lot easier.

i have used hog ring pliers before, and after using the ones that Mr Mike sends with his kit i'll never use anything else.
might try to find some like his.
