Upholstering seats using suede

Got two Toyota Supra seats I got at the junkyard, for my Camaro. And I now finally got my hands on over 10 yards of black suede or ultra suede or whatever it's called, they had it at a fabrics store.

I'm going to remove the old upholstery, remove the stitching, trace it all on paper and then move on to the suede.

Now any other things I should be thinking about ?

Should I use a superthin layer of foam and spray glue it to the back of the suede before I stitch all the parts together ?





Check out my babe
