I recently ordered a set of seat covers from Mr Mike, which got me searching and I found the following Videos they are not perfect, the guy totally doesn't add the additional padding that come in the kit (Don't worry Mr Mike supplies a DVD or VCR of the steps) but if you wanted to get a basic idea of what is involved they are a good start. fyi the video says it is for a 65 Mustang but they are installing Fiero Seats.

A couple years ago, I encoded Mr. Mike's video so I could put it on my tablet to use while I was doing my seats. I contacted Mike, and told him I could put the video up on you tube, or send it to him to do so. He replied "Do NOT put the video on YouTube". Not sure what the reasoning is, but I never uploaded it.

It sure would make things easier in this day and age to have it on YouTube so you could watch it on your phone or tablet while installing the covers.

I had Mr. Mike right there when I installed his seat covers

He's selling a product, that video and probably more importantly, the knowledge contained with it is part of the product. If you were to put up on ut then you'd be giving away part of his product and probably breaking a bunch of copyright laws as well.
So I can sort of understand his point of view (I think, I could be totally wrong).

I own the seats the the DVD and there are no secrets given out. In fact being on You Tube would be a benefit to Mr Mike as it shows how easy this is and complete the kit is.

I was worried when I went to tackle this but found it easy to do a great job. The keys are just make sure to use the padding and over stuff the bolsters as they will compress. It will keep the wrinkles out after you sit in them for a while. The original foam goes dead and it helps with the added new foam.

The only negatives is if you are not used to doing this kind of work your fingers will be a little sore and pricked from the Hog rings. It is nothing that will not heal.

I have since gone on and done other seats with other kits and factory covers that came out great.

As for the video it is just part of the kit to show you how to put his product on.

Mr Mike has the strongest fingers in the world lethal touch of death.

Lack of finger strength here but they came out perfect.
