Has anyone replaced seat covers in a 1969 Eliminator or Mustang Mach 1?
I have already got the back seat done and the bottom of the front buckets but the high back part of the front seats are giving problems. Is there enough stretch in the material to turn it inside out, install hog rings to listing wire and then roll it back?

I did not have any luck turning inside out, just pull the headrest part down as tight as you can and then pull the lower part up as far as you can and reach under to attach hog rings, you only need three in the top part. That's the way I did it.

I have not done cougar seats but have done others. This may help it may not. Put the covers out in the sun to get them more pliable. I have used heat guns in the past too but you have to be careful it's not too hot. In addition I've seen guys put plastic over the frames and then coat the plastic with baby powder or some type of powder and slide them on after the covers have been in the sun. Guys have had luck with that too.
