Got my new upholstery for the '62 today.
I went to a local upholstery supply this morning and bought a roll of synthetic cotton to replace the top layer under the old upholstery, and a bag of hog rings.
Quite the fight to get it pulled to the back of the frame to ring down, but I prevailed. Had to let it cook in the sun for a while to soften and stretch and then I just stayed out there and cooked with it, so it wouldn't cool off in the shop. Took about an hour to pull it back with zip ties to get the hog rings in, but it looks pretty good for a first time.
