Listings

So I'm wrapping up the bottom of my bench seat and all I have left is the listings and the j channels. On the listings, what should I use for the wire? Plastic welt cord, actual wire or the fiber welt chord? Then on the j channel, is it ok to reuse the j channel I took off the old cover? Thanks so much for the help!

Yes, it's O.K. to re-use the "J" channel. You can use anything in the listings that will hold the hog rings and be relatively flexible if you're turning a corner. Any of the things you mentioned are fine.

I'm doing a back seat of a 67 Cadillac right now, and I replaced the old listing wires with wire coat hangers.

That's what I plan to use. How do you figure out where exactly to sew the listing on? Do you sew it at the end of your fabric at the hem or a little up from that?

You sew it on where it was sewed on the original seat cover.

If only I had the original seat covers! I'm having to make my own patterns. I imagine, I'll just have to measure carefully after I sew on the boxing and see where they'll go.

Listings are pretty self explanatory. Check after the boxings are sewn on and then adjust the boxings or the listings to get a snug fit.
