taking the seat apart

First of all, obviously, after separating the top back from the bottom seat, is to take off the old seat cover to make our patterns from. This is a simple job with a truck seat. This seat has two wires in listings top and bottom that are attached with hog rings to the metal frame, and two short pieces of plastic "J" channel sewed to the sides and hooked over two of the vertical supports. All we have to do is take out all the hog rings and pull the "J" channel off the frame. I like to use a side cutter to take the hog rings out. If they are not connected to the frame you can just cut them out.
