Photo # 1 - This is how the cover now looks turned right-side-out.

Photo # 2 - Next I use the same process and sew the two bottom pieces (arrows) to the bolster. I also sew on the front and rear wire hold-downs which can be seen in this photo.

Photo # 3 - Here is a close up shot of the rear wire hold-down sewn in place.

Photo # 1 - My seats are formed with a molded lower section in the middle of the bottom cushion and the back cushion. To keep the pleated inserts nicely formed to that lower contour of the cushions, the factory install velcro strips into the foam itself. Here I am attaching 2" wide velcro strips to the back side of the pleated panels to match the strips in the cushions. The Wal Mart industrial velcro is sticky back but I will also sew these strips in place when I do the edge seam work later.

Photo # 2 - Here is the seat base showing the velcro "hooks" section which came from the factory this way.

Photo # 3 - I begin assembling the panels by attaching the side wings to the pleated center section of the seat cushion. I first staple welting cord to the edge of the center section then I staple the wing pieces to the center section making sure all the witness marks line up. I then sew a seam 3/8" from the edge. This is the distance used in the factory seat so I used it throughout the reupholstery. The seam width may vary from seat maker to seat maker so measure carefully as you take things apart.
