I think one of my suppliers can get me size 138 Sunguard 223Q charcoal in one pound tubes only. If you want it, let me know and I'll have them drop ship it right to you. All you have to do is pay the invoice.

The thread is $46 for a one pound tube. They screwed up and sent it to me already. If you just want to use it for your project, I'll send it to you, you can use it and then send it back to me. You just pay the shipping. I could also just wind some onto an empty spool and send it to you.

Would you be willing to wind up like a 4 oz spool, something small. And Ill just go ahead and split the cost with you, $23 and Ill pay shipping. I really have no need for a 1lb spool. It will sit around forever. I dont want to leave you with paying majority of the cost, so Ill just pay half of it. Thanks for the help.

Let me know when you want me to paypal it and the total cost with shipping and Ill do that as soon as possible.

I'll wind you up a quarter of it on a spool, but all you need to pay is the shipping, I'll use the rest of the thread. PayPal is fine, I'll let you know in a PM the e-mail address and how much the shipping is. I have a customer that I will use the charcoal up on. I use black for them now, but the charcoal will actually match better.

So heres what I used that charcoal thread for. Thanks for the help Dan.




And I finally got started on my seats. First set Ive ever done besides this barstool I used for a little practice. Used the barstool to help me practice with sewing with sew foam. The insert on the barstool is actually recycled leather from the original f150 seats.


Covers not fully installed on the seat in this picture, didnt have my listings sewed in yet. But I should have some finished pictures in a week or so. Im really happy with how theyre turning out, didnt expect it to come out so nice.

So I got one just about done. Waiting for some clips to finish the back panel off on it. For the back I screwed wood strips around the inside of the seat frame to tack my cover down and welded tabs for the back panel clips. I did the string technique on the back cushion listings to pull them tight and the bottom cushion listings are hog ringed down like the stock way.

My center inserts werent following the dip of my seat foam though . So what could be the reason for causing that? Im thinking my center inserts were sized slightly too wide causing them to poof up in the center. So what I ended up doing was running a tiny strip of adhesive right down the center to keep it from poofing up. Worked perfect, but I just dont like the fact of having to use adhesive even though I only used a tiny amount. Is this something that can happen when doing seats that dip down and is the adhesive acceptable? Ive heard of seats coming from factory with glued down listings so Im not too worried about doing it.

For a first seat project Im pretty happy, I learned a lot doing these.




Started with the console first before the seats since all I really needed to do was copy the stock cover. I ended up wrapping the entire thing and doing some work to the cup holders.

Your progress looks really good. I had asked Dan the same question about glued listings and he affirmed it was acceptable but I should let him do his own talking. May I ask what brand of vinyl or leather you are using? It appears to be very workable material. I also like the texture and not too shines finish.

Thanks. Symphony vinyl. I like it so far, out of the vinyls Ive used so far it seems to do very well with weird shapes.

That was what I have been watching. Of coarse any material requires a skilled hand to work it. Who makes the Symphony if I may ask?
