1956 Ford F100 bench seat re-upholster

Hi everyone,

Has anybody seen a decent site for advice on re-upholstering bench seats? I am experienced with a standard sewinig machine and we have bought an industrial machine. The plan is to re-cover the seat in leather.
Any tips, good supplies websites will also be appreciated!

Katherine

Here's a truck seat upholstery tutorial: CLICK HERE Unfortunately, those auto upholstery books are not much help to a beginner. I've been doing this for 39 years, and I think the books are vague and confusing. Here is another thread on re-padding an old seat: CLICK HERE
